Indigo Girls – Midnight Train To Georgia lyrics

L. A. Proved too much for the man
(too much for the man)
(he couldn't make it)
So hes leaving the life hes come to know
(he said hes going)
He said hes going back to find
(going back to find)
Whats left of his world
The world he left behind
Not so very long ago
Oh yeah

Hes leaving
(leaving)
On that midnight train to georgia
(leaving on a midnight train)
Oh yeah
Oh yall
Said hes going back to find
(hes going back to find)
A simpler place and time
(and when he takes that ride)
Yes he is
(guess whos gonna be right by his side)
Ill be with him
(I know you will)
On that midnight train to georgia
(leaving on a midnight train to georgia)
(whoo whoo)
Id rather live in his world
(live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(world, world)
(its his, his and hers alone)

He kept dreaming
(dreaming)
That one day hed 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 no uh uh)
So he sold all his hopes
And he even sold his own car
And bought a one way ticket back
To the life that he once knew
Oh yes he did
He said he would

I know hes leaving
(leaving)
On that midnight train to georgia
(leaving on a midnight train)
Oh yeah
Oh yall
Said hes going back to find
(hes going back to find)
A simpler place and time
(and when he takes that ride)
Yes he is
(guess whos 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)
Id rather live in his world
(live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(world, world)
(its his, his and hers alone)

Hes leaving
(hes leaving)
On a midnight train to georgia
(leaving on a midnight train)
Oh yeah
He said hes going back to find
(hes going back to find)
A simpler place and time
(and when he takes that ride)
(guess whos 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 a midnight train to georgia)
(whoo whoo)
Id rather live in his world
(live in his world)
Than live without him in mine

(world, world)
(is his, his and hers alone)
(world is his)
(his and hers alone)
(all aboard)
(one world)
(her man, his girl)
I've got to go
(all aboard)
I've got to go
(one world)
I've got to go
(her man, his girl)
I've got to go
(all aboard)
I've got to go
(one world)
I've got to go right now
(her man, his girl)
(all aboard)
(one world)
(her man, his girl)
(all aboard)
(one world)
(her man, his girl)
