[Intro]    
G   C     G   C     G   C     G   C

[Verse]
G                  C
Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong 
G                             C
sitting in the cold when the truck pulled along
G                         C
Driven by the boy in the dyed black hair
G                                  C
Asked him where he's going and he said eveywhere

[Chorus]
     D                            Em   
And ohhh, it's the last train to Memphis
     D                                      Em   
And ohhh, don't you wonder where it's gonna take us
       C                     
But I gotta get back, get the train on the track
C                          
Nose to the grindstone pick up the slack

[Interlude]  
G   C     G   C

[Verse]
G                     C
Governor Wallace and Robert E. Lee
G                               C
Wonder what these rebels would think of me
G                             C
Love me tender on a highway sixty one
G                             C
In every other car someone's carrying a gun

[Chorus]
     D                            Em   
And ohhh, it's the last train to Memphis
     D                                      Em   
And ohhh, don't you wonder where it's gonna take us
       C                     
But I gotta get back, put the train on the track
C                          
Stoke up the fire, pick up the slack

[Bridge]  
F                      Am
 It's a land of dreams,  it's not all it seems
G                     F
 It's a store of Tupelo honey
F                       Am
 Down the freedom trail,  on a cotton bail
Em                    D   D   D   D   D
 It's the overnight mail

[Interlude]  
G   C     G   C     G   C

[Verse]
G                      C
Stonewall Jackson and Pickett's Charge
G                      C
Mississippi River and life on a barge
G                       C
Wal Mart shopping on a Sunday afternoon
G                             C
Chicken fried steak couldn't come too soon

[Chorus]
     D                            Em   
And ohhh, it's the last train to Memphis
     D                                      Em   
And ohhh, don't you wonder where it's gonna take us
       C                     
But I gotta get back, put the train on the track
C                          
Upstairs Graceland heart attack
       C                     
Too many ribs right off the rack
C                          
Thought I knew the answer but I never look back

[Outro]
G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G     G
