Mavis Staples – Last Train lyrics
Last train running between the waters with the power line
Last train running around the hill
Last train leaving on the quarter out of time
Last chance to get your last trip

This world is getting so much faster
It's too sad
Poor trains are goin' down slow
And I'm about to keep up with the latter
It's too bad
When it's in my nature to let go

You got me huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
A hissin' and kissin' and missin' like a cuckoo brain
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu

Just like the engine
I have a junction
Feeling down
My head is wondering where to go
And you've got so many different trips you know
My face is wondering where to show

You got me huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
A hissin' and kissin' and missin' like a cuckoo brain
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu

You got me huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
A hissin' and kissin' and missin' like a cuckoo brain
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu

Just like the engine
I have a junction
Feeling down
My head is wondering where to go
And you've got so many different trips you know
My face is wondering where to show

You got me huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu
A hissin' and kissin' and missin' like a cuckoo brain
Chu-Chu
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Chu-Chu

You got me huffing (huffing), puffing (puffing),chugging,chugging like a chu-chu train
You got me huffing (huffing), puffing (puffing),chugging,chugging like a chu-chu train
You got me huffing
A hissin' and kissin' and missin' like a cuckoo brain
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
Huffing and puffing and chugging like a chu-chu train
