Midnight Train To Georgia Lyrics

Mmm, L.A. proved too much for the man
(too much for the man, he didn't make it)
So he's leavin' the life
he's come to know, ooh ooh

(he said he's goin')
He said he's goin' back to find
(goin' back to find)
Ooh ooh ooh, what's left of his world
The world he left behind
not so long ago

He's leaving (leavin')
on that midnight train to Georgia
(leavin' on the midnight train)
Yeah, said he's goin' back
(goin' back to find)
to a simpler place and time
(a simpler place and time)
Oh yes he is
(gonna be right by his side)

And I'll be with him
(I know you will)
on that midnight train to Georgia
(leavin' on a midnight train, wooh wooh)
I'd rather live in his world
(live in his world)
than live without him in mine
(world, world, his, his and his alone)

He kept dreamin' (dreamin')
Ooh, that someday he'd be a star
(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, uh-uh)
Uh-uh, no

So he pawned all his hopes
(ooh ooh ooh ooh)
and he even sold his old car
(ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Bought a one way ticket back
to the life he once knew
Oh yes he did
He said he would, oh oh

He's leavin (leavin')
on that midnight train to Georgia
(leavin' on the midnight train)
Yeah, said he's goin' back to find
(goin' back to find)
ooh, a simpler place and time
(a simpler place and time)
(yes I'm gonna be right by his side)

And I'm gonna be with him
(I know you will)
on that midnight train to Georgia
(leavin' on a midnight train, wooh wooh)
I'd rather live in his world
(live in his world)
than live without him in mine
(world, world, his, his and his alone)

Oh hey hey
Go, gonna board, gonna board
the midnight train to ride
Gonna board (gonna board)
Gonna board (gonna board)
Gonna board (gonna board)
the midnight train to Georgia
Uh huh, gonna board, gonna board
Gonna board (gonna board)
the midnight train to Georgia
My world, his world, our world
the midnight train to Georgia
I've got to go
I've got to go
I've got to go
Gonna board the midnight train

It was funny when they played it on American Idol with Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., and Ben Stiller in the back. I love it. :)
