LAST TRAIN (Dick Feller) Jerry Reed - 1976 SPOKEN: When I was a baby times were kinda hard and money was kinda scarce. And my Mama told she used to hop a freight and Papa would just pitch me up to her and we'd hobo all around the South lookin' for work. Well after I grew up a little, Mama told me about those hard times and how they were the happiest times of her life. And now here's a song about one of those people..... He was just an old railroad hobo At a time when trains were all but gone With a tear in his eye sittin' on a railroad tie Talkin' to himself of goin' home He said I've seen the world from a freight train I've hauled across the countryside Now I'm just a tired, weary pilgrim Waitin' to take me one last ride He said last train won't you take me to my home Make it fast train, life is leavin' these old bones And I'm alone, got no one to call my own I'm lookin' for that last train for home He said boy, I have had me some high times And Lord, yes I've had me some low All across these open spaces bluffed my deuces bet my aces Take it easy come and easy go But this old world kept growin' up and goin' places Until my way of life is lost in time Now there ain't much left for me, boy I'm ridin' to the end of the line He said last train won't you take me to my home Make it fast train, life is leavin' these old bones And I'm alone, got no one to call my own I'm lookin' for that last train for home Well he tipped his hat and he walked off to the mainline Where he found an open empty car As he pulled himself inside, settled down for the ride I could see he wouldn't be goin' far And I thought Lord, ain't this world just like a train yard Where each of us are bound to roam alone And ain't we all like some old railroad hobo Just lookin' for that last train for home He said last train won't you take me to my home Make it fast train, life is leavin' these old bones And I'm alone, got no one to call my own I'm lookin' for that last train for home I'm lookin' for that last train for home (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012)
