Lyrics

L.A. proved too much for the man (Too much much for the man) (He couldn't make it) So he' leaving the life He's come to know (He said he' going) He said he's going back to find (Going back to find) Ooh, ooh, ooh, 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 the midnight train) yeah Said he's going back (Going back to find) To a simpler place and time And I'll be with him (I know you will) On that midnight train to Georgia (Leaving on the midnight train to Georgia, hoo, hoo) I'd rather live in his world Than live without him in mine (My world is his, his and hers alone) He kept dreaming (dreaming) Ooh, 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 (Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo) And he even sold his old car (Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo) Bought 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 the midnight train) yeah Said he's going back to find (Going back to find) Ooh, a simpler place and time (When he takes that ride Guess who's gonna be right by his side)
