South Georgia Belle

Listen to poem:
Won't you dance with me in your front yard tonight 
By the light of that South Georgia moon
With the stars in your eyes, true love in your heart
Right after this fine afternoon

Your hand on my shoulder, mine on your hip
You’ll want to get close, I can tell
Till your hair's on my cheek, my arm round your back
Dance with me South Georgia belle

    South Georgia belle, please take my hand
    Step with me onto a cloud
    So close to heaven, your lips to mine
    Two hearts together so proud

    Ever so gentle, ever so fine
    How do I know you so well
    I’ll take you softly, ever so slowly
    Dance with me South Georgia belle

The owls will gaze, the possums will stare
The bullfrogs and crickets will sing
When I hold you tight, and you melt in my arms
As we set on the porch on your swing

When you whisper to me, all your sweet love
I whisper mine to you as well
Our hearts become one, and our souls intertwine
Forever my South Georgia belle
