[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___!  
 
(C7* = add the root/five bassline by alternating with C7/G=3x2310)
 
 
[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*     
 And I don't know if I'm ever coming home!
 
(D7* = add the root/five bassline by alternating with D7/A=x00212)
 
 
(Play G Riff twice to lead into Verse 3)
 
  
[VERSE 3]
          G-Riff
 Take the last train to Clarksville,
         G-Riff
 I'll be waiting at the station
            G-Riff
 We'll have time for coffee-flavored kisses,
 G-Riff                       
   And a bit of conversation,  
 C7*
   Oh, no, no, no!  Oh, no, no, no!
 
 
[BRIDGE 1]
 G                            
 Do-do  di-di  di-di  do-do,

[VERSE 4]
          G-Riff
 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!
