The Jayhawks

The Jayhawks are an American alternative country and rock band that emerged from the Twin Cities music scene during the mid 1980s. Their country rock sound was influential on many bands who played the Twin Cities circuit during the 1980s and 1990s like Uncle Tupelo, The Gear Daddies and The Honeydogs. They have released several studio albums, including five on the American Recordings label. On hiatus from 2005 to 2009, the band has since reunited and released a new album, "Mockingbird Time," in September 2011. more »

I walked the last mile home
In this heart was born a shame
Loving you no longer
No matter what I tried
The feeling shared tonight keeps coming back to mind

I'll find an old barroom,
Settle in for good,
Forget about the past close behind me
No matter what I tried
The feeling shared tonight keeps coming back to mind

Westbound train is leaving, darling can't you see? 
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory

I walked the last mile home
In this heart was born a shame
Loving you no longer
No matter what I tried
The feeling shared tonight keeps coming back to mind

Sun up in the midwest, darling can't you see? 
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory

Westbound train is leaving, darling can't you see? 
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory

I'll find an old barroom,
Settle in for good,
Forget about the past close behind me
No matter what I tried
The feeling shared tonight keeps coming back to mind

Sun up in the midwest, darling can't you see? 
Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory

Let the last night be the longest
In a lonesome memory
