Waylon Jennings – Cedartown Georgia lyrics

(Mack Vickery - Sammi Smith - Charlie Cobble)
I got a gal in Cedartown Georgia
I used to have to walk nearly three miles to court her
She never had much, just a sharecropper's daughter
But I married her and took her down to New Orleans.
Got a little house in the South French Quarter
Got a job tookin' bales load them on steamboat
I give the seven days pay next day unbroke
When she ain't a sleepin' all day she's a primpin'.
Every evenin' when the sun goes down
She starts a swarmin' on Orleans town
Walkin' into work this mornin' at daybreak
I caught her with the tall long dandy from canebreak.
As she walked right by me
And she looked right through me.
I made up my mind what I'm a gonna do
Eased in the pawnshop and bought a 22.
I watched as the roomclerk gave them a room key
A standin' right outside I could read Room 23.
Tonight I'll put her on a train for Georgia
Gonna be a lotta kin folks squallin' and a grieving
'Cause that Cedartown gal ain't breathing...
