Georgia On My Mind

Lyrics: Hoagy Carmichael, Stuart Gorrell
Music: Hoagy Carmichael, Stuart Gorrell

Played by Jerry with Merl Saunders, mostly as an instrumental. But sometimes with guest vocalists such as Maria Muldaur and Sarah Fulcher. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics below--from a Sarah Fulcher version.

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Georgia, Georgia, no peace do I find
Just and old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Many arms reach out to me
Many eyes smile tenderly
Sweet, sweet dreams
Seems like I always see there's a road
And it leads right back to you

Georgia, Georgia, no peace do I find
Just and old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Georgia, sweet Georgia
You know there ain't no peace that I can find
You know that old sweet song
That keeps Georgia on my mind

I can't find no peace
That old sweet, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
On my mind
[etc]
