Lyrics:
L.A., proved too much for the man (too much for the man)
(he couldn't make it)So he's leaving the life he's come to know, ooo
(he said he's going)he said he's going back to find(going back to find)
Oooo, what's left of his world
The world he left behind
Not so long agooh

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 when 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 that midnight train to Georgia, 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)
Ooo, 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)
oh no(uh uh) uh uh (no uh uh)

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

I know he's leaving (leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia (leaving on that midnight train)
Yeah, ooh ya'll, said he's going back to find (going back to find)
Ooo, a simpler place and time (whenever he takes that ride)
Ooh ya'll, 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 the midnight train to Georgia, 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)

Hey hey hey (our love)
Our love (gonna board)
Gonna board on the midnight train and ride
Our love (our love)
Gonna board (gonna board)
Gotta board on the midnight train and go
Our love (our love)
Gonna board (gonna board)
Uh huh, on the midnight train and go

My world (our love)
His world (gonna board)
Our world (the midnight train to go)
Mine and his alone

My world (our love)
His world (gonna board)
Our world (the midnight train to go)
Mine and his alone

I got to go (our love)
I got to go (gonna board)
I got to go (the midnight train to go)
Hey!

I got to go (our love)
I got to go (gonna board)
Mmm mmm (the midnight train to go)

My world (our love)
His world (gonna board)
My man (the midnight train to go)
His girl

I got to go (our love)
I got to go (gonna board)
Oww (the midnight train to go)

My world (our love)
His world (gonna board)
Our world (the midnight train to go)
Mine and his alone
