Midnight Train to Georgia Lyrics by Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit (feat. Brittney Spencer & John Paul White)

 

L.A. proved too much for the man
(Too much for the man) He couldn’t make it
So he’s leaving the life he’s come to know
(He said he’s going) He said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find) Ooh, what’s left of this world
The world he left behind not so long ago

He’s leaving (Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia (Leaving on the midnight train)
Said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find) Ooh
A simpler place and time (Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side?)

And I’ll be with him (I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia, oh-ooh (Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia)
I’d, I’d rather live in his world (Live in his world)
Than be without him in mine (World, world)
(It’s his, his and hers alone)

He kept dreaming (Dreaming)
Ooh, 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, oh-oh

(So he pawned) So he pawned down his hopes
And even sold his own car, yeah
He bought a one-way ticket back
To the life, the life he once knew
He said he would, oh-oh

He’s leaving (Leaving)
On that midnight train to Georgia, oh-oh (Leaving on a midnight train)
I said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find) Ooh
A simpler place and time, oh (Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s gonna be right by his side?)

And I’ve got to be with him (I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia, oh-ooh-oh (Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia)
I’d rather live in his world (Live in his world)
Than be without him in mine (World, world)
(It’s his, his and hers alone)

Oh, I am a leaving on the midnight train to Georgia, yeah (Leaving, leaving on the midnight train)
Said he’s going back to find
(Going back to find) Ooh
A simpler place and time, oh (Whenever he takes that ride, guess who’s 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)
I’d rather live in his world (Live in his world)
Than be without him in mine (World, world)
(It’s his, his and hers alone)

For love, don’t b-b-b, don’t be alone (I’m gonna board the midnight train to go)
For love I’m gonna board, I’m gonna board the midnight train to go
My world, his world, our world (One love, I’m gonna board)
Mine and his alone (The midnight train to go)
My love, his love (One love, I’m gonna board)
I’m gonna board the midnight train to go

I’ve got to go, I’ve got to go (One love, I’m gonna board)
I’ve got to go (The midnight train to go)
I’ve got to go, I’ve got to go (One love, I’m gonna board the midnight train to go)
(One love, I’m gonna board the midnight train to go)
My love, his love (One love, I’m gonna board)
My lover, midnight train to go
My world, his world, our world (One love, I’m gonna board the midnight train to go)
