Georgia on My Mind Lyrics

Georgia, Georgia
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind
Georgia on my mind

Each day, Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still, in peaceful dreams, I see
The road leads back to you, to you, my beautiful Georgia
Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind
Oh, Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind
