Willie Nelson - I Been to Georgia on a Fast Train lyrics

On a rainy Wednesday morning that's the way that I was born in

That old sharecropper's one room country shack

They said my mommie left me the day before she had me

Said she hit the road and never once looked back

And I just like to mention my grandma's old age pension

Is the reason why I'm standing here today

I got all my country learning a milking and a churning

Picking cotton raisin' hell and baling hay

I been to Georgia on a fast train honey I wouldn't born no yesterday

I got a good Christian raisin' and an eight grade education

Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

Now sweet Carolina I don't think I'll ever find

Another woman put together like you are

I like your wiggle in your walking and your big city talking

And your brand new shiny Plymouth ragtop car

Well it's hurry up and wait in this land of give and take

It seems like haste it makes for waste everytime

I declare to my soul when you hear those ages roll

You better know I'm gonna get my share of mine

I been to Georgia on a fast train...

I been to Georgia on a fast train...
