Georgia Blues Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I feel bad,
I feel sad,
But it won't be very long
Before I'll be feeling glad,
I just sigh,
I could die
Verse 2
I have got Georgia blues,
And I'm just too mean to cry;
I don't live in Boston
I wasn't born in Maine
If I don't go to Georgia,
I will surely go insane.
Verse 3
I've got the Georgia blues,
'Cause I've got bad news
I'm gonna catch a train,
And I ain't gonna stop until I'm home,
Home again
Verse 4
I'm not satisfied,
Just must take a ride
Gee, but I'll be happy
With my baby by my side
Hear that whistle blow,
Now it's time to go,
'Cause the train is waiting,
Got no time to lose,
A certain party that I know
Offered me a ticket to Chicago.
Verse 5
But he can have it, I don't want it,
'Cause I got the Georgia blues.
I've got those Georgia blues,
'Cause I got bad news
I'm gonna catch a train,
And I ain't gonna stop until I'm home, home,
Home again
Verse 6
I'm not satisfied,
Just must take a ride
Gee, but I'll be happy
With my sweet daddy by my side
Hear that whistle blow,
Now it's time to go,
My train is waiting
Got no time to lose,
A party wanted to marry me, way last spring,
Even bought me a brand new diamond ring,
But he can have it, I don't want it,
'Cause I got the Georgia blues
