Georgia to Texas Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
504 black girl carried me
In her womb to the land of the peach
Her birthin' pains brought me low
But she held me high on Peach Tree Road
Verse 2
Got mother's eyes and my father's nose
Also got brother's hand-me-down clothes
We had no green but the love was strong
It was all we needed to get us along
Get us along
Verse 3
Left ATL for the Texas way
We drove 20 East in my daddy's '88
I learned in school I didn't measure up
I fell short of what true blackness was
Mama talked a righteous way
I said "Down that path Lord's been astray"
Verse 4
Paid for love on a crescent moon
In that Oklahoma motel room
Carrie taught me chords to strum
They got me through and I felt numb
Verse 5
504 black girl
504 black girl carried me
504 black girl, black girl
504 black girl carried me
504 black girl carried me
504 black girl carried me
