about

This song is in the key of G.
Pete plays the harmonica parts on a full-scale harp which simply would not do concert pitch no matter how many hammers we bashed it with.
It was a popular acoustic number when performed by Dr Watson and in George’s TEFL classes.
Most of the sequencing is played on the Yamaha TG33.
The clicky guitar that we wish was considerably quieter is a sample.

lyrics

LAST TRAIN TO HEAVEN
It’s the last train to Heaven
And this is Midnite calling
Sleep slipped out the window
To where the stars are falling
And the Sandman points a finger
And the shadows begin their crawling
This is the last train to Heaven
And this is Midnite calling

How many miles to Babalon?
Three score mile and ten…
Will I get there by candlelight?
Yes, and back again…
And the Joker shuts his eyes
And the dream begins to end
This is the last train to Heaven
And it won’t call again

Well, it’s the last train to Heaven
And this is Midnite calling
Moonlight minds the night time
Rides while day is walking
Lights the way to Paradise
And dawn lets in the morning
It’s the last train to Heaven
And this is Midnite calling

How many miles to Babalon?
Three score mile and ten…
Will I get there by candlelight?
Yes, and back again…
And the Joker shuts his eyes
And the dream begins to end
This is the last train to Heaven
And it won’t call again
