Hoagy Carmichael – Georgia On My Mind lyrics

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind, Georgia on my mind
Each day, Georgia my honey, a song of you
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me, other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you, to you beautiful Georgia
Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind

Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind
Georgia on my mind

    This is one song written for "Georgia," Hoagy's sister by his close friend, who had a crush on her. Take a look at her picture, she was a good looker, plain Ivory Snow type, but a beauty none the less. YES, I am quite aware of the State of Georgia. and its fond adoption of this song; however it was NOT wrote for the State. Georgia was his friend's LOVE for "Sweet Georgia." This love song is one of the original Love Songs, written with Love, Care, and NO VULGARITY. I know Hoagy played up the State Factor but the truth be known. GEORGIA was his not-so-known Sister.
