OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade once inside the ring
Get on home and swing your man, everybody swing
Join hands and circle to the left go walking round the ring
Allemande left that corner and weave around the ring
I'll ride that last train to heaven on rails of solid gold
Swing your partner and promenade on home
Where a hobo's always welcome even in his ragged clothes
I'll ride that last train to heaven when the final whistle blows


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru and get 4 hands and go
All the way and then right & left thru you know
Swing thru down the way and boys run to the right
Tag the line, face it right, and boys cross run, far right
Bend the line and square thru 3/4 round
Swing the corner lady and promenade on home
Where a hobo's always welcome even in his ragged clothes
I'll ride that last train to heaven when the final whistle blows


TAG

I'll swing right into heaven when the final whistle blows

Last Train To Heaven  (1982)

I'll ride that last train to heaven
On rails of solid gold
In a boxcar lined with satin
Where the nights are never cold
Where a hobo 's always welcome
Even in his ragged clothes
I'll ride that last train to heaven
When the final whistle blows.

Well I set in hobo jungles
From Maine to New Orleans
I've heard ole timers tell the tale
Of a train they hope to see
There'll be a long black steamer
That shines just like the sun
With a thousand miles of boxcars
Behind engine number one.

I'll ride that last train to heaven
On rails of solid gold
In a boxcar lined with satin
Where the nights are never cold
Where a hobo 's always welcome
Even in his ragged clothes
I'll ride that last train to heaven
When the final whistle blows.

All the hobos will be waitin'
No more sleepin' on the ground
With his hand upon the throttle
There'll be no puttin' down
This ride is just for hobos
They'll come from all around
When that train gets down to her last run
Destination heaven bound

I'll ride that last train to heaven
On rails of solid gold
In a boxcar lined with satin
Where the nights are never cold
Where a hobo 's always welcome
Even in his ragged clothes
I'll ride that last train to heaven
When the final whistle blows.

I'll ride that last train to heaven
When the final whistle blows

Lyrics by Guy Workman and Jan Shuster.
Recorded by Boxcar Willie.
