Heptune presents:

Georgia on My Mind

Transcribed from vocals by Mildred Bailey, recorded November 24, 1931,
From Mildred Bailey, volume 1, Sweet Beginnings, Old Masters, mb-103.

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!

Georgia! Georgia!
The whole day through,
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind,
Georgia on my mind!

Georgia! Georgia!
A song of you,
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight
Through the pine.

Other arms reach out to me,
Other eyes smile tenderly,
Still in peaceful dreams I see,
Road leads back to you.

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

Other arms reach out to me,
Other eyes smile tenderly,
Still in peaceful dreams I see,
Road leads back to you.

Georgia! Georgia!
No peace I find,
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind,
Georgia on my mind!
