Georgia On My Mind
by Hoagy Carmichael

Verse 1:
Melodies bring memories,
mem'ries of a song,
a song that sing of Georgia,
back where I belong.

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 moon-light 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.

Georgia, Georgia
no peace I find;
just an old sweet song keeps
Georgia on my mind.

 

Verse 2:
Melodies bring memories
That linger in my heart.
Make me think of Georgia,
Why did we ever part?

Verse 3:
Some sweet day when blossoms fall
And all the worrld's a song,
I'll go back to Georgia,
'Cause that's where I belong.
