L.A. proved too much for the girl, she couldn’t make it,
So she's leavin' a life she's come to know,
She said she's going back to find, Ooh, what's left of her world,
The world she left behind not so long ago.
She's leaving on that midnight train to Georgia,
Said she's going back to a simpler place and time.
And I'll be with her on that midnight train to Georgia,
I'd rather live in her world than live without her in mine.
She kept dreaming that someday she'd be a star,
But she sure found out the hard way
That dreams don't always come true, oh no,
So she pawned all her hopes and she even sold her old car
Bought a one way ticket to the life she once knew,
Oh yes she did, she said she would,
She’s leaving on that midnight train to Georgia,
Said she's going back to a simpler place and time.
And I'll be with her on that midnight train to Georgia,
I'd rather live in her world than live without her in mine.
She’s leaving on that midnight train to Georgia,
Said she's going back to find a simpler place and time.
And I'll be with her on that midnight train to Georgia,
I'd rather live in her world than live without her in mine.
Go, gonna board, gonna board,
Gonna board the midnight train.
Gotta go, gonna board Gonna board
Gonna board the midnight train.
