Midnight Train To Georgia cover
Mmmm, L.A. proved too much for the man.
(Too much for the man. He couldn't make it.)
So he's leaving the life, mmmm, he's come to know.
Oooh, oooh, oooh. (He said he's going.)
He's said he's going back to find, (Going back to find)
Oooh, oooh, oooh, what's left of his world.
The world he left behind not so long ago.

He's leaving (Leaving) on that midnight train to Georgia.
(Leaving on a midnight train.) Mmmm, yeah.
Said he's going back (Going back to find) to a simpler place and time.
(Whenever he takes that ride,) Oh, yes he is.
(Guess who's gonna be right by his side.)
I'll be with him (I know you will.) on that midnight train to Georgia.
(Leaving on the midnight train to Georgia.) Ehhh, eh, eh, eh, eh.
(Whoo, whoo!)
I'd rather live in his world (Live in his world) than live without him in mine.
(Her world is his, his and hers alone.)

He kept dreaming, (Dreaming)
Oooh, that someday he'd be a star.
(A superstar, but he didn't get far.)
But he sure found out the hard way that dreams don't always come true.
(Dreams don't always come true.) No, no.
Uh, uh. (Uh, uh, no, uh, uh.)
So he pawned all his hopes (Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.)
And he even sold his own car, mmmm, (Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.)
For a one-way ticket back to the life he once knew.
Oh, yes he did. He said he would.

Oh, oh, he's leaving (Leaving) on that midnight train to Georgia.
(Leaving on a midnight train.) Mmmm, yeah.
He said he's going back to find, (Going back to find)
Oooh, a simpler place and time.
(Whenever he takes that ride,) Oooh, yeah.
(Guess who's gonna be right by his side.)
I'm gonna be with him (I know you will.) on that midnight train to Georgia.
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia.) Oooh.
(Whoo, whoo!)
I'd rather live in his world (Live in his world) than live without him in mine.
(Her world is his, his and hers alone.)

Oooh, he's leaving (Leaving) on that midnight train to Georgia.
(Leaving on a midnight train.) Yeah. Oooh, y'all.
He said he's going back to find, (Going back to find)
Oooh, a simpler place and time.
(Whenever he takes that ride,) Oooh, yeah. Uh huh.
(Guess who's gonna be right by his side.)
I've got to be with him (I know you will) on that midnight train to Georgia.
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia.) Eh, eh. Hey, hey, hey, hey.
(Whoo, whoo!)
I'd rather live in his world (Live in his world) than live without him in mine.
(Her world is his, his and hers alone.) Eh, hey, hey, hey.

(One love) One love (gone aboard) gone aboard on the midnight train to ride.
One love (One love) gone aboard, (gone aboard)
Gone aboard on the midnight train to go.
One love (One love) gone aboard, (gone aboard)
Uh huh, the midnight train to go.
My world, (One love) his world, (gone aboard the midnight train to go.)
Our world, mine and his alone.
My world, (One love) his world, (gone aboard the midnight train to go.)
Our world, mine and his alone.
I've got to go, I've got to go, I've got to go.
(One love gone aboard the midnight train to go.) Hey.
I've got to go, I've got to go. Mmmm, hmmm, hmmm.
(One love gone aboard the midnight train to go.)
My world, (One love) his world. (gone aboard the midnight train to go.)
My man, his girl.
I've got to go, I've got to go. Oooh!
(One love gone aboard this midnight train to go.) I've got to go.
My world, (One love) his world. (gone aboard...)
