Midnight Train to Georgia

L.A. proved too much for the man
So he's leavin' the life he's come to know
He said he's goin' back to find
Ooh, what's left of his world
The world he left behind Not so long ago

He's leaving
On that midnight train to Georgia
And he's goin' back
To a simpler place and time

And I'll be with him
On that midnight train to Georgia
I'd rather live in his world
Than live without him in mine

He kept dreamin'
That someday he'd be a star.
But he sure found out the hard way
That dreams don't always come true.

So he pawned all his hopes
And he even sold his old car
Bought a one way ticket back
To the life he once knew,
Oh yes he did,He said he would

And now he's leavin
On that midnight train to Georgia
He said he's goin' back
To a simpler place and time

I'll be with him
On that midnight train to Georgia
I'd rather live in his world
Than live without him in mine

Go, gonna board
Gonna board
Gonna board the midnight train.
Gotta go, gonna board
Gonna board
Gonna board the midnight train
