Last Train Home Lyrics

By the time I get to Phoenix
Was the last song on your mind the day you left
Then you woke up in Nogales
With Tequila with her name across your chest

Now, you've stumbled through the morning
On these border tourists' dusty avenues
Singing every day's the hurting kind
And everyday you live, you're born to lose

Now, you missed the last train home
The whistle blew and now she's gone
West Texas dust beneath your nails
You're hammered down the heartbreak trail
Now, you've missed the last train home
Whistle blew, she's solid gone

Now, you're wandering El Paso
Searching for your broken heart and truth
She was all you ever had
And the only thing you ever had to lose

And with a juke box playing Charlie Rich
You're lining up your shots at half past noon
And you threw your ring across the bar
And sang along to good time Charlie's got the blues

Now, you missed the last train home
The whistle blew and now she's gone
West Texas dust beneath your nails
You're hammered down the heartbreak trail
Now, you've missed the last train home
Whistle blew, she's solid gone

Don't go to Tulsa where she's bound
You'll end up six feet underground
Your ex-friend, Charlie's there about
He never missed the last train out

Now, you missed the last train home
That whistle blew, she's solid gone
Now, you missed the last train home
That whistle blew, she's solid gone
