    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
