Back To Georgia

They say there's a blizzard in Montana They tell me of a drought in Idaho I guess I'll just drift on back to Georgia The peaches will be ripe there now I know Oh, she was the reason that I wandered She had the blondest hair I ever saw But she fell for a smooth talkin' gambler Just a greasy haired slick from Arkansas Well I took to drinkin' in the bar rooms "Go West" they said."There's plenty more to find." So I started out somewhere in Texas But long blonde hair was always on my mind They say there's a blizzard in Montana They tell me of a drought in Idaho I guess I'll just drift on back to Georgia The peaches will be ripe there now I know I met me a lady out in Utah But she was born and raised in Ohio She said she was taught to hate Old Dixie So I just tipped my hat and let her go I cowboy'd for awhile down in Reno A place where gamblin' ain't against the law All the men I see here in this city Remind me of that slick from Arkansas They say there's a blizzard in Montana They tell me of a drought in Idaho I guess I'll just drift on back to Georgia The peaches will be ripe there now I know 5-12-20 Contest: Brian's Choice A Sponsor:Brian Strand
