The Chad Mitchell Trio recorded the song in this form:
"Way down in Columbus, Georgia - I wanta go back to Tennessee
Way down in Columbus Stockade, my friends all turned their backs on me.
Chorus: Well you can go and leave me if you want to
Never let it cross your mind
If in your heart you love another,
You can leave me, ltttle darlin' I won't mind.
(I just realized I can't rattle off the next verses! It was early on in the 60's and, besides I am "getting on")
