[VERSE 1]
          G-Riff              
 Take the last train to Clarksville,
           G-Riff
 And  I'll meet you at the station, 
         G-Riff 
 you can be here by 4:30,
             G-Riff
 'Cause I've made your reservation, 
          C7*                                     (stop)
 don't be slow,  Oh, no, no, no!  Oh, no, no, no___!

[VERSE 2]
            G-Riff 
 'Cause I'm leaving in the morning,      
       G-Riff 
 and I must see you again,
            G-Riff
 We'll have one more night together,
          G-Riff 
 'Til the morning brings my train, 
               C7*  
 and I must go,  Oh, no, no, no!  Oh, no, no, no___!
       D7*

 We'll have time for coffee-flavored kisses,
 G-Riff                       
   And a bit of conversation,  
 C7*
   Oh, no, no, no!  Oh, no, no, no!

 Take the last train to Clarksville, 
          G-Riff
 now   I  must hang up the phone, 
         G-Riff
 I can't hear you in this noisy                          
          G-Riff
 railroad station, all alone, 
             C7* 
 I'm feeling low,  Oh, no, no, no!  Oh, no, no, no!
        D7*  
 And I don't know if I'm ever coming home!
