Sid,

If the song you are referring to has the chorus which starts, 'I want to hop on the last train in the station', then the song was written by Arlo Guthrie.

Hope this is the one you are looking for.

Happy Holidays

Karen

I've always understood it to be one of Arlo's and it is my impression that it is a response to his father's "This train is bound for Glory"

Is it the once with the chorus that ends "You know you're reasonably there"? Anybody got the complete lyrics?

LAST TRAIN TO GLORY
Arlo Guthrie
Copyright 1973, Howard Beach Music ASCAP
CHO: I want to hop on the last train in the station,
Won't need to get myself prepared,
When you're on the last train to glory, people,
You'll know you're reasonably there.

Now maybe you ain't walked on any highways,
You've just been flying in the air,
But if you're on that last train to glory, people,
You'll know you must have paid the fare.

Now maybe you've been lying down in the jailhouse,
Now maybe you're hungry and poor,
Now maybe your ticket on the last train to glory,
Is the stranger who is sleeping on your floor.

Now I ain't a man of constant sorrow,
And I ain't seen trouble all day long,
We are only passengers on the last train to glory,
That will soon be long, long gone.

Thanks a lot, Karen. I didn't have time to transcribe the song yesterday, and it's one that oughta be included in the database. You'll note that I added line breaks <br> to separate the lines of the song.
There's a great recording of this song on For All the Good People: A Golden Ring Reunion on the Folk-Legacy label. This may be my very favorite CD.
