LAST OLD TRAIN'S A-LEAVIN'
(Jean Ritchie)

Standin' on the mountain, standin' on the mountain
Standin on the mountain, don't you want to go?

cho: O the last old train's a-leavin', the last old train's a-leavin'
Thew last old train's a-leavin', don't you want to go?

Hear the hills a-fallin' (3x)
Don't you want to go?

Hear the nightbirds callin' (3x)
I don't want to go.

See the timber burning
Don't you want to go?

See my newground turning
I don't want to go.

See the people going
Don't you want to go?

See my redbuds glowing
I don't want to go.

Standing on the mountain
Don't you want to go.
