Midnight Train to Georgia - Gladys Knight and the Pips
------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Johnny Butt

This is probably the most thorough chord tab i've done to date. There's a couple 
things to keep in mind: 
1) Words not in parenthesis (/) are sung by Gladys
2) Words in parenthesis () are sung by the Pips
3) Words in brackets [] are sung by both'
4) There is a capo on the first fret
5) For those who want to know the actual chord names:

C = C# or Db
Em7 = Fm7
F = F# or Gb
G = G# or Ab
D = D# or Eb
Am = A#m or Bbm

Capo 1.

C      Em7   F    G

C                  Em7              F   D       G             G7
make it)   So he's leavin' the life        he's come to know,      (He said he's 
C                   Em7                F     G
goin') He Said he's goin back to find       (goin back to find)
C         Em7                     F         G
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh   what's left of his world,
C                Em7          F   D            G     G7
    The world he left behind      Not so long ago.


[Chorus 1]

     C        Em7      F          G
He's leaving, (leavin)    On that midnight train to

                                            G7
(Whenever he takes that ride) Oh yes he is (Guess who's gonna be right by his side)
      C          Em7             F             G
And I'll be with him (I know you will) On that midnight train to

F                              G
 I'd rather live in his world (Livin in his world) Than live without him in 
C            Em7      F    G
mine. (Their world is his, his and hers alone)


[Verse 2]

C        Em7       F         G
 He kept dreamin' (dreamin')   That someday

 he'd be the star. (A superstar, but he didn't get far)
C                     Em7           F          D           G
 But he sure found out the hard way  That dreams don't always
                                           G7
come true. (Dreams don't always come true. Uh-uh. No. Uh-uh) So he 
C              Em7   F      G
pawned all his hopes   (Ooh ooh ooh ooh) and he even 
C Em7        F        G
sold his old car (Ooh ooh ooh ooh) Bought a 
C                Em7   F              D    G
one way ticket back       To the life   he once knew,
              G7
Oh yes he did,  He said he would. Although

I am looking forward to trying this... I could have sworn Gladys Knight and the Pips did much more songs...
