I'm looking for the words and the composer to this song sung by Sally Rogers. I have one very old cassette, and I just can't make out the words! Help!

Isn't this Lisa Null's song? Let's get Charlie Baum in on this one! He'll have the answer, for sure.

From: Charlie Baum and Lisa Null

I'M GOING HOME TO GEORGIA
words and music by Lisa Null

My body is tired, my spirit is burned
I'm going home to Georgia
My poor heart is aching with all that I've learned
I'm going home to Georgia

Pour me a drink; it'll settle my thirst
You always knew what I loved best
Maybe it'll deaden this pain in my chest
I'm going home to Georgia

After all that I've travelled and all that I've seen
I'm going home to Georgia
It's none of your business just where I've been
I'm going home to Georgia

Sing me song; set my spirit at ease
You know all the tunes I love best
Maybe it'll lighten this weight on my chest
I'm going home to Georgia

I've brought you a secret as true as a rose
I'm going home to Georgia
The more tarnished it gets the brighter it glows
I'm going home to Georgia

In all of my wanderings I could never forget
You were the one I loved best
Lay yourself down, put your head on my breast
I'm going home to Georgia

"From the horses mouth..." Lisa dictated the words to me as I typed. She adds that she's still an active performer in the Washington, D.C. area.

I had the privelige of seeing and hearing Lisa sing this fine composition of hers at the (2011)pre-getaway crab bash.
Beautiful voice, unrushed delivery, thanks for the moment Lisa.

With her permission, I have uploaded onto the FSGW-Getaway yahoo group website Lisa singing her song.

I haven't heard Lisa sing it, but it was a favourite of my friend, the late Johnny Collins, so thank you Bradfordian for reviving this thread!

To hear this lovely song you need to get onto yahoo groups.
Here is a message from Sandra, one of the group moderators.
The song can be found in the files section.

I remember first hearing this song from Sally Rogers, and thinking it was traditional.
