I Been To Georgia On A Fast Train

Song Author Billy Joe Shaver Performer: Willie Nelson Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]On a rainy windy morning on the [C]day that I was born in
That old [G]sharecropper's one room country [D7]shack
They [G]said my mammie left me [C]the day before she had me
Said she [G]hit the road and [D7]never once looked [G]back

And I just like to mention my [C]grandma's old age pension
Is the [G]reason why I'm standing here [D7]today
I got [G]all my country learning a [C]milking and a churning
Picking [G]cotton raisin' [D7]hell and baling [G]hay  

I been to Georgia on a fast train [C]honey
I wasn't [G]born oh yester[D7]day   
I got a [G]good Christian raisin' and an [C]eighth grade education
Ain't no [G]need in y'all a [D7]treatin' me this [G]way  

Oh my sweet Carolina I don't [C]guess I'll ever find
Another [G]woman put together like you [D7]are   
I love your [G]wiggle in your walking and your [C]big city talking
And your [G]brand new shiny [D7]Plymouth ragtop [G]car  

Well it's hurry up and wait in this [C]land of give and take
It seems like [G]haste makes for waste every [D7]time   
And I [G]declare to my soul when I [C]hear them ages roll
You [G]better know I'm gonna [D7]get my share of [G]mine

I been to Georgia on a fast train [C]honey
I wasn't [G]born oh yester[D7]day   
I got a [G]good Christian raisin' and an [C]eighth grade education
Ain't no [G]need in y'all a [D7]treatin' me this [G]way  

I been to Georgia on a fast train [C]honey
I wasn't [G]born oh yester[D7]day   
I got a [G]good Christian raisin' and an [C]eighth grade education
Ain't no [G]need in y'all a [D7]treatin' me this [G]way  

There ain't no need in y'all a [D7]treatin' me this [G]way  


On a rainy windy morning on the day that I was born in
That old sharecropper's one room country shack
They said my mammie left me the day before she had me
Said she hit the road and never once looked back

And I just like to mention my grandma's old age pension
Is the reason why I'm standing here today
I got all my country learning a milking and a churning
Picking cotton raisin' hell and baling hay

I been to Georgia on a fast train honey
I wasn't born oh yesterday
I got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

Oh my sweet Carolina I don't guess I'll ever find
Another woman put together like you are
I love your wiggle in your walking and your big city talking
And your brand new shiny Plymouth ragtop car

Well it's hurry up and wait in this land of give and take
It seems like haste makes for waste every time
And I declare to my soul when I hear them ages roll
You better know I'm gonna get my share of mine

I been to Georgia on a fast train honey
I wasn't born oh yesterday
I got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

I been to Georgia on a fast train honey
I wasn't born oh yesterday
I got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

There ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way
