"Taking the Midnight Train" as written by and Tony Joe White....
Takin' the midnight train, takin' the midnight train
I can't stand this pain, I can't stand this pain
To have somebody who hurts me for no reason
For no cause, for no cause
I left home very young, I left home very young
To the California sun, to the California sun
A lady took me for her lover
She was the one, she was the one

It seemed we were made for each other
Yeah, I couldn't have been more satisfied
But then one night, she packed her bags and left without a word
I guess I've never known his name
And ain't no use I'd say I never loved her
Because I did, God knows I did

Solo

Takin' the midnight train, takin' the midnight train
I can't stand this pain, I just cannot stand this pain
To have somebody who hurts me for no reason
For no cause, for no cause.
