Last Train To Clarksville - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
Words and music by
Tommy boyce and bobby hart
Take the last train to clarksville,
And I'll meet you at the station.
You can be be there by four thirty,'cause I made your reservation.
Don't be slow, oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!'cause I'm leavin' in the morning
And I must see you again
We'll have one more night together'til the morning brings my train.
And I must go, oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!
And I don't know if I'm ever coming home.
Take the last train to clarksville.I'll be waiting at the station.
We'll have time for coffee flavored kisses
And a bit of conversation.
Oh... oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!
Take the last train to clarksville,
Now I must hang up the phone.I can't hear you in this noisy
Railroad station all alone.I'm feelin' low. oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!
And I don't know if I'm ever coming home.
Take the last train to clarksville,
Take the last train to clarksville,
[repeat and fade]
