Shenandoah – Moon Over Georgia lyrics

He owns a big estate
Just south of savannah
And a high rise hotel in down-town atlanta
Add half the state of georgia to his name
She'd be set for life in his coloniel manner
He laid the world at her feet on a silver platter
But all I had to offer her, was the moon
*and she took the moon over georgia
She'd rather have a million stars in the sky
Than a gold mine
She took the moon over geogia
When it came down to his world or mine
She took the moon over georgia
-a little country house in need of expansion
It's far cry from his south georgia mansion
But we've got our own paradise.
Shadows dancin' til down with a full moon shinin'
And those occasional clouds all have a silver lining
There really must be something about, that old yellow light
Chorus*till end
