Georgia on my mind

Written by: Stuart Gorrell
Composed by: Hoagy Carmichael

MELODY 1:

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
Georgia, Georgia, a song of you,
comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines.

Other arms reach out to me,
other eyes smile tenderly,
still in peaceful dreams I see,
the road leads back to you.

Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.


MELODY 2:

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.
Georgia, Georgia, a song of you,
comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines.

Other arms reach out to me,
other eyes smile tenderly,
still in peaceful dreams I see,
the road leads back to you.

Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find.
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind.

Melodies bring memories,
that linger in my heart.
Make me think of Georgia,
why did we ever part?

Some sweet day when blossoms fall,
and all the world's a song.

I'll go back to Georgia, 'Cause that's where I belong.
I'll go back to Georgia, 'Cause that's where I belong.


       

Georgia´s state song, USA

"Georgia on My Mind" is a song written in 1930 by Stuart Gorrell (lyrics) and Hoagy Carmichael (music). It is the official state song of the U.S. state of Georgia. Gorrell wrote the lyrics for Hoagy's sister, Georgia Carmichael. However, the lyrics of the song are written ambiguously enough as to refer to the state or to a woman named "Georgia." Carmichael's 1965 autobiography, Sometimes I Wonder, records the origin: a friend suggested: "Why don't you write a song called 'Georgia?' Nobody lost much writing about the South."

The song is best known as sung by Ray Charles, who first recorded the song in 1960. It became Georgia's state song in 1979.
