Gladys Knight & The Pips - Midnight Train to Georgia

[Verse 1]
Mmmm L.A
Proved too much for the man
(Too much for the man he couldn't make it)
So he's leavin' the life he's come to know
(He said he's goin)
He said he's goin' back to find
(Goin back to find)
Ooh ooh ooh what's left of his world
The world he left behind
Not so long ago

He's leaving (leavin)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leavin on a midnight train)
Said he's goin' back (Goin back to find)
To a simpler place and time
(Whenever he takes that ride, guess who's gonna be right by his side)
Oh yes he is

And I'll be with him (I know you will)
On that midnight train to Georgia
(Leaving on a midnight train to Georgia, woo woo)
I'd rather live in his world
Than live without him in mine
(That world is his, his and hers alone)

Songwriter Jim Weatherly explained in an interview with Songfacts that this song came about after a phone call he had with Farrah Fawcett.
