GEORGIA ON A FAST TRAIN
As recorded by: Willie Nelson
Writer: Billy Joe Shaver
On a rainy, windy mornin' on the [D] day that I was born
In that old [A] sharecroppin' one room country shack
They [A] said my mammy left me, the [D] day before she had me
Said she [A] hit the road and [E] never once looked [A] back.
And I'd just like to mention, my Grandma's old-age pension
Is the reason why I'm standin' here today
And I got all my country learnin', a-milkin' and a-churnin'
Pickin' cotton, raisin' hell, and bailin' hay.
[A] I've been to Georgia on a [D] fast train, honey
I [A] wasn't born no yester-[E] day
I got a [A] good Christian raisin' and an [D] eighth grade education
An' ain't no [A] need in y'all a-[E] treatin' me this [A] way.
Oh my sweet Carolina, I don't guess I'll ever find
Another woman put together like you are
I love your wiggle and your walkin', and your big city talkin'
And your brand new shiny Plymouth rag-top car.
Well, it's hurry up and wait, in this land of give and take
Seems like haste makes a waste every time
And I declare unto my soul, when I hear those ages roll
You better know I'm gonna get my share of mine.
TAG: There ain't no need in y'all a-treatin' me this way.
