MIDNIGHT TRAIN TO GEORGIA (James D. Wheatherly)
-----------------------------------------------
[Capo 1; each chord is half a measure.]
[Em7 is 022030, G is 320003.  The D's might be D7's.]
[In the intro, play a quick Gsus4 (3x0013) in the middle of the G.]

C  Em7  F  G
[intro]

C          Em7   F   G
Mmmmm, L. A.
           C             Em7     F             G
Proved too much for the man (too much for the man)
             C                Em7           F  D                G  G  G7  G7
(He couldn't make it) So he's leaving a life     he's come to know
              C                Em7            F    G
(He said he's going) Said he's going back to find (going back to find)
C         Em7         F     G-Gsus4-G
  What's left of his world
C             Em7       F        D      G    G  G7  G7
  A world he left behind not so very long ago,  oh yeah

     C        Em7     F        G
He's leaving (leaving) on that midnight train to
  C                   Em7                  F    G
Georgia (leaving on a midnight train), oh yeah
          C              Em7       F              D
Said he's going back to find (he's going back to find)
            G           G               G7                          G7
A simpler place and time
         (and, when he takes that ride, guess who's gonna be right by his side)

  C           Em7             F             G
I'll be with him (I know you will) on that midnight train to Georgia 
Am                 Am               D              D
  (Leaving on the midnight train to Georgia... woo woo!)
F                    F          G [stop]
  I'd rather live in his world (live in his...) than live without him in mine
C   Em7   F   G
(background voices: something about "his world")

He kept dreaming (dreaming)
That one day he'd be a star (a superstar, but he didn't get far)
Well he sure found out the hard way
Dreams don't always come true (dreams don't always come true, uh-uh, no, uh-uh)
So he [?????????] his house [?], and he even sold his old car [???]
And bought a one-way ticket back
To the life that he once he knew, oh yes he did, he said he would

I know he's leaving on that midnight train to
Georgia (leaving on a midnight train), oh yeah
Said he's going back to find (he's going back to find)
A simpler place and time   (...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 the midnight train to Georgia... woo woo!)
I'd rather live in his world (live in his...) than live without him in mine

[etc.]
