Georgia River Blues

Updated on April 24, 2017


Born down in Georgia, got river water flowing in my veins,

Even when I up and moved away, that river's call remains.

I grew up along its grassy banks, fished almost every day,

Swam and played in that old river, my heart is there to stay.


Refrain:

Georgia river blues, I'm not sorry, there, I just can't refuse,

When you grow up in Georgia, it's there you gotta choose.




That river is a source of life, where every creature calls a home,

Once you get hooked on its true worth, away, you'll never roam.

There's been a tale about big cats, swimming in the water there,

Big as a man, will eat you if they can, and to see them is so rare.


Refrain:

Georgia River Blues, I'm not sorry, there, I just can't refuse,

When you grow up in Georgia, it's there you gotta choose.





Georgia river, I got those Georgia river, love that river, now blues,

If you move away, you'll be sad every day, got to pay some dues.

I'm going back to Georgia, I missed that muddy river down there,

When you only have a few years to live, not any time left to spare.


Refrain:

Georgia river blues, I'm not sorry, there, I just can't refuse,

When you grow up in Georgia, it's there you gotta choose.


My daddy grew up on that river, too, caught fish to feed his clan,

Learned boy lessons there mighty well, helped him to be a man.

Mommas tell their children, of the river's secrets, and of its flood,

No matter how you hate high water's mark, it runs in your blood.


Refrain:

Georgia river blues, I'm not sorry, there, I just can't refuse,

When you grow up in Georgia, it's there you gotta choose.

There you gotta choose.

      I have several friends who are from Georgia. They always find a reason to go back from time to time. This song explains it.
