Georgia, my orchard heart

Oh Georgia, my orchard heart 
The king is waiting on his throne
Of red clay, of glass jars and strings

Cicadas shriek into the wind
A doe, she turns to me
then turns back again

Oh Georgia, my gentle sky
The perfume of your trees
Your streets
Three a.m., do I still know where they lead? 

Tie the ribbons, to the branches
I watch the day's afterglow
So much to pick up,
All these twigs and stones

interstate seventy five 
Like the pulse of my southern land, 
I'm still alive, I'm still alive
