Ever Get To Georgia

Room 202

Still the moon is melting 

To pool at her feet

Another bright-eyed suitor

Headed for defeat...

Georgia with her gypsy smile

Up against the wall

Like a summer flower

Plotting colors for the fall

Wears an air around her

Like a planet wears a ring

Fools you with her gravity

Then hangs you on a string

 

If you ever get to Georgia 

Can you ask her what went wrong

Maybe tell her ‘bout this song

And if you ever get to Georgia 

Can you find out

What all the fighting's for

If you ever get to Georgia

 

Crossroads and borders

My fate had not been kind

When a sweet southern potion

Stirred a wonder in my mind

She whispered love’s a dangerous thing

As she chained me to her ring

Now I've got this broken wing

And dreams to never be

 

So if you ever get to Georgia 

Can you ask her what went wrong

Maybe tell her ‘bout this song

And if you ever get to Georgia 

Can you find out

What all the fighting's for

Tell her I'd come back for more

 

And in the blue hours of a morning

When I woke to find her gone

I knew then I was going to pay

For everyone that did her wrong

But she did me wrong

 

Georgia with her scarlet razor

Trail of broken hearts

Angel with an ending

Devil from a start

Still the moon is melting 

To pool at her feet

Another bright-eyed suitor

Headed for defeat

 

If you ever get to Georgia 

Can you ask her what went wrong

Maybe tell her ‘bout this song

And if you ever get to Georgia 

Can you find out

What all the fighting's for

That I'd come back for more

If you ever get to Georgia
