Midnight Train To Georgia  Indigo Girls


[Capo 1; eacb cbord is balf a measure.] 
[Em7 is 022030, G is 320003.  The D's might be D7's.] 
[In tbe intro, play a quick Gsus4 (3x0013) in tbe middle of tbe G.] 
[C] [inEm7]tro] [F]   [G]
[C]Mmmmm, L. A[Em7].     [F]    [G]
Proved too [C]much for the m[Em7]an (too [F]much for the m[G]an)
(He couldn't [C]make it) So he's [Em7]leaving a life[F]   [D]  he's come to kn[G]ow [G]   [G7]    [G7]
(He said he's [C]going) Said he's [Em7]going back to f[F]ind ([G]going back to find)
[C]  What's l[Em7]eft of his w[F]orld  [G-Gsus4-G]
[C]  A world he l[Em7]eft behind[F] not so v[D]ery lon[G]g ago[G],  [G7]oh y[G7]eah
He's [C]leaving ([Em7]leaving)[F] on that [G]midnight train to
Ge[C]orgia (leaving on a [Em7]midnight train), oh y[F]eah  [G]
Said he's [C]going back to f[Em7]ind (he's [F]going back to f[D]ind)
A simpler pl[G]ace and time[G]                [G7]                            [G7]
(and, when he takes that ride, guess who's gonna be right by his side)

I'[C]ll be with h[Em7]im (I know you w[F]ill) on that m[G]idnight train to Georgia
[Am]  (Leaving on the m[Am]idnight train to [D]Georgia... woo [D]woo!)
F                    F          G [stop]
I'd rather live in his world (live in his...) than live without him in mine
[C](bac[Em7]kgroun[F]d vo[G]ices: 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
