Lyrics 

Georgia, Georgia 
The whole day through 
Just an old sweet song 
Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind) 

I said Georgia 
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 

I said Georgia  
Ooh Georgia, no peace I find  
Just an old sweet song  
Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind)  

Other arms reach out to me  
Other eyes smile tenderly  
Still in peaceful dreams I see  
The road leads back to you  

Whoa, Georgia  
Georgia  
No peace, no peace I find  
Just this old, sweet song  
Keeps Georgia on my mind  

I said just an old sweet song  
Keeps Georgia on my mind
