Georgia on a Fast Train  Billy Joe Shaver

Verse 1:
[A] On a rainy,windy morning that's the d[D]ay that i was born on
In the old sh[A]arecroppers one room country sh[E]ack
They s[A]ay my mammy left me,s[D]ame day that she had me
Said she h[A]it the road and n[E]ever once looked b[A]ack
Verse 2:
[A] And i just thought i'd mention,my Gr[D]andma's old age pension
Is the r[A]eason why i'm standing here tod[E]ay
I got [A]all my country learning,l[D]iving and a churning
Pickin' c[A]otton,rasin' h[E]ell,and bailin' h[A]ay
[A] I've been to Georgia on a f[D]ast train honey
[A]I wudn't born no yesterd[E]ay
Got a go[A]od Christian raisin' and an e[D]ighth grade education
Ain't no n[A]eed in y'all a tr[E]eatin' me this w[A]ay
Verse 3:
[A] And now sweet Caroline,i don't g[D]uess i'll ever find
Another w[A]oman put together like you [E]all
With your w[A]iggle and your walkin',and your b[D]ig city talkin'
Your br[A]and new shiny Pl[E]ymouth rag-top c[A]ar
Verse 4:
[A] Yeah it's hurry up and wait,in this w[D]orld of give and take
Seems like h[A]aste makes for waste every t[E]ime
And i pr[A]ay to my soul,when you h[D]ear those ages roll
You b[A]etter know i'm gonna g[E]et my share of m[A]ine
Ain't no n[A]eed in y'all a tr[E]eatin' me this w[A]ay
Thanks to David M. Potter ( for the lyrics.
