I walked the last mile home
In this heart was born the shame
Loving you no longer
No matter what I tried
The fear we shared tonight
Keeps coming back to mind

I'll find an old barroom
Settle in for good
Forget about the past close behind me
No matter what I tried
The fear we shared tonight
Keeps coming back to mind

Westbound train is leaving
Darling, can't you see?
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory

I walked the last mile home
In this heart was born the shame
Loving you no longer
No matter what I tried
The fear we shared tonight
Keeps coming back to mind

Sun up in the Midwest
Darling, can't you see
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory

Oh, the westbound train is leaving
Darling, can't you see?
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory

I'll find an old barroom
Settle in for good
Forget about the past close behind me
No matter what I tried
The fear we shared tonight
Keeps coming back to mind

Sun up in the Midwest
Darling, can't you see
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory
