  1. Zoey & Me Says:

    A young man who played guitar and mowed my parents lawn sang this song really slow at our wedding, in the church. People loved it.

    3rd best train song ever, right after “The Wreck Of Ol’ 97” and “The City Of New Orleans”

    Trivia note: Originally was going to be called “Midnight Plane To Dallas” until wiser/more romantic heads prevailed

    On Richard Pryor’s short lived TV variety show in the late 70s/early 80s. They once had “…And The Pips” on as guest performers (i.e., the group w/o Gladys Knight). They did “Midnight Train To George” w/back-up only, no lyrics! No wonder the show was cancelled after 4 episodes.

      buzz,
      Midnight Train to Dallas just doesn’t resonate. I can’t think of a reason even to want to go to Dallas.

      I listened to this song again ignoring as much of Gladys as I could. The Pips must have been awful-probably looked good and had great moves but sounded awful.

        It was as goofy as you would expect, one of those things that that’s hilarious for about 30 seconds then just peters out.
