Lyrics
I walked the last mile home
In this heart was born a shame
Loving you no longer
No matter what I tried
The feeling 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 feeling 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 a shame
Loving you no longer
No matter what I tried
The feeling 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

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 feeling 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
