"Midnight Train to Georgia (Gladys Knight & the Pips cover)" as written by and James D. Weatherly....
Hmm L.A.
Proved too much for the man
(Too much for the man, he couldn't make it)
So he's leaving a life
Hmm he's come to know, ooh
(He said he's going)
Said he's going back to find
(Going back to find)
Ooh, what's left of his world
The world he left behind
Not so long ago whoah oh oh

He's leavin'
(Leavin')
On the midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin' on that midnight train)
Yeah

Said he's goin' back
(Goin' back to find)
To a simpler place in time
(Whenever he takes that ride)
Oh yes oh yes (guess who's gonna be right by his side)

And she'll be waitin'
(I know she will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin' on that midnight train to Georgia, ooh, ooh)
She rather live in his world (live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(Her world is his, his and hers alone)

Ooh he just kept dreamin'
(Dreamin')
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, aha, no, aha)

So he pawned all his hopes
Even sold his old car
Bought a one way ticket back
To the life he once knew
He said he would

Now, he's leavin'
(Leavin')
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin' on that midnight train)
Yeah

Said, he's goin' back to find
(Goin' back to find)
A simpler place in time
(Whenever he takes that ride)
Oh, yes he is (guess who's gonna be right by his side)

She'll be there (I know she will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin' on that midnight train to Georgia, ooh, ooh)
She rather live in his world (live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(Her world is his, his and hers alone)

He's leavin'
(Leavin')
On the midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin' on that midnight train)
Yeah

Said, he's goin' back to find
(Goin' back to find)
A simpler place in time
(Whenever he takes that ride)
Oh, yes he is (guess who's gonna be right by his side)

And she'll be waitin' (I know she will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin' on that midnight train to Georgia, ooh, ooh)
She rather live in his world (live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(Her world is his, his and hers alone)

He's leavin' (For love, gonna board)
The midnight train and go
For love, gonna board
The midnight train and go
I've got to go (for love)
I've got to go (gonna board)
I've got to go (midnight train and go)

I've got to go (for love)
I've got to go (gonna board)
(The midnight train and go)
