Midnight Train To Georgia  (Album Version)

Midnight Train To Georgia (Album Version)

Gladys Knight & the Pips

L A proved too much for the man
(He couldn't make it)
So he's leavin' the life he's come to know
(He said he's goin')
He said he's goin' back to find
Oh, what's left of his world
The world he left behind
Not so long ago

[Chorus]
He's leavin'
On that midnight train to Georgia
Said he's goin' back
To a simpler place in 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

[Chorus: x2]

Go, gonna board, gonna board
The midnight train to Georgia
Gonna board the midnight train
Gotta go, gonna board
Gonna board
Gonna board the midnight train
