Baby, baby
Don't go
Baby, baby
Don't, don't, don't, don't go

L.A. proved too much for the man
And so he's leaving a life that he's come to know, ooh
He said he's going back
Ooh, what's left of his world
The world he left behind not so long ago

He's leaving
(Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia, yeah
(Leaving on the midnight train)
Georgia, Georgia, Georgia
He said he's going back
(Going back to find)
To a simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, I'm gonna be by his side)
I've gotta be with him
(I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
I'd rather be in his world
(Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine
(Her world is his, his and hers alone)

He kept dreaming, yeah
That some day he would 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
Oh so he pawned off his hopes
And he even sold that old raggedy hoopty-holler car
He bought a one way ticket back to a life that he once knew

Oh-oh, he's leaving
(Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin' on a midnight train)
Wait on me, baby, I'm comin'
He said he's going back
(Going back to find)
To a simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, I'm gonna be by his side)
I've gotta be with him
(I know you will)
Yeah, on that midnight train
I gotta be on that midnight train to Georgia
I'd rather live in his world
(Live in his world)
Than live without him in mine

Ooh, I gotta be on that midnight
The midnight, the midnight, on the midnight, mid-mi-mid-mid-mi-mid
Midnight train to Georgia 

Ooh, he's leaving
Track One
(Her world is his, his and hers alone)
He's leaving
On the midnight, on the midnight, mid-mi-mid-mid-mi-mid
Midnight train to Georgia
Georgia, Georgia, yeah
(Midnight train to George)
(Her world is his, his and hers alone)
(For the love of a boy)
(The midnight train to Georgia)
(For love of a boy)
(The midnight train to Georgia)
(For love of a boy)
(The midnight train to Georgia)
(Her world is his, his and hers alone)
