'The Final Taxi' by Wreckless Eric. From 'The Wonderful World of Wreckless Eric' LP, on Stiff Records, 1978. Verse 1: F Am A black cavalcade winds its way through the backstreets, D G Flowers piled high on a wooden box. F Am friends and relations sat in rows in the back seats, D G All looking shakey cos it came as a shock. Chorus: F Am A black cavalcade winds its way through the backstreets, D G Some poor soul took his final taxi. F Am There's only one destination in the final taxi (x2). Verse 2: F Am Up through the town to the Garden of Rest, D G Riding in style in a long wooden box. F Am No fare on the meter, they'll be paying by cheque, D G This is one fare you dont see up on the clock. Chorus. Bridge: Am there's only one destination ooooooooh, D there's only one destination ooooooooh, F there's onyl one destination ooooooooh, G there's only one destination ooooh. Verse 3: F Am They lowered him down into a hole in the ground, D G Threw in the flowers and shovelled earth on top. F Am The cars pulled away from the Garden of Rest, D G For a funeral tea, with twentu five guests. F Am The cars pulled away for the funeral tea, D G Cos some poor sod took his final taxi. Chorus (x2). HAHAHAHAHaaaah.
