(Gwil Owen)

There's a town in Georgia, that I once called mine
Just across the muddy water from the Carolina side
They say home is a place you go where they have to take you in
I don't know if it's really so but I'm goin' back down again

Oh Augusta take me in
Oh Augusta take me in

Savannah river from the overpass
Shinin' bright in the mornin' light
Like a fire in a whiskey glass
I can hear the sirens clear cross the water and around the bend
And I can see that's it's gonna be a little hard to make amends

Oh Augusta take me in
Oh Augusta take me in
Cause I just can't seem to win
Oh Augusta take me in

Now I'm standin on the shoulder, of Sandbar Ferry road
Starin' down at the same old ground that I used to walk before
The only change is I'm a stranger now but I remember when
There was a time when I swore I'd die before I'd ever come back again

Oh Augusta take me in
Oh Augusta take me in
Cause I'm goin back down again
Oh Augusta take me in
(No and I can't win)
Oh Augusta take me in
(Goin down, down again)
Oh Augusta take me in
(Across the water and around the bend)
Take me take me in
