David Allan Coe – Back To Atlanta lyrics

By David Allan Coe

Dedication: Dedicated to Pete Drake and Rose Trimble for giving me the chance to be where I am today, For believing in my songs and in me.. Sincerely David Allan Coe P. S. And to David Rogers for recording it.

If she knew that I was here with you

There aint no doubt about what she would do

So lets get dressed and I'll be on my way

You knew that I was passing through

I never meant to stay.

And I think I'd better go back to atlanta

Before my conscience makes A fool of me

I never should have stepped across loves mason dixon line

And I think it's time to go back to atlanta

I've been on the road for A long long time

She was out of sight and out of mind

But she still wears my ring upon her hand

All that I could be to you is

Just A one night stand
