That last train done left town
That last train done left town
I heard the whistle moaning low
That last train done gone down

My sweet baby’s on that train
My sweet baby’s on that train
I wonder if I will see her again
That last train done gone down

I heard that whistle moanin’ low
I heard that whistle moanin’ low
I’m begging and pleading, please don’t go
That last train done gone down

I’m sorry for what I’ve done
I’m sorry for what I’ve done
Too late good-bye, my sweet baby cried
That last train done left town

That last train done left town
That last train done left town
I heard that whistle moanin’ low
That last train done gone down
