GEORGIA ON A FAST TRAIN
(Billy Joe Shaver)
BR 5-49 (ARISTA, 1998)

On a rainy wednesday mornin' thats the day that I was born
In that old sharecropper's one-room country shack
They say my mummy left me, the same day that she had me
Said she hit the road and never once looked back
And now I just thought I'd mention my grandma's old expension
Is the reason why I'm standin' here today
I got all my country learnin', milkin' and a-churnin'
Pickin' cotton, raisin' hell and bailin' hay

Yeah, I been to Georgia on a fast train, honey
I wasn't born on yesterday
Got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no reason y'all treatin' me this way

Now old sweet Carolina, I don't guess I'll ever find
Another woman put together like you are
With your wiggle and your walkin' and your big city talkin'
And your brandnew shiny Plymouth Ragtop car
So let's hurry up and wait
In this world of give and take
It seems like haste makes the waste all the time
And a prayer to my soul when I hear those ages roll
You'd better know I'm gonna get my share of mine

Yeah, I been to Georgia on a fast train, honey
I wasn't born on yesterday
Got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no reason y'all treatin' me this way
No sir!

Yeah, I been to Georgia on a fast train, honey
I wasn't born on yesterday
Got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no reason you are treatin' me this way
Ain't no reason y'all treatin' me this way
