Lefty Frizzell – Watermelon Time In Georgia lyrics

Watermelon time in georgia

(A) Thank you, Detroit, you treated me good
But I've been here longer (A7) than I should
I en-(D)-joyed the money, but I miss my honey (A) so
One (E) thing on my mind, it's (E7) watermelon time in (A) Georgia

(A) Well it makes a country boy get down in the mouth
When his body's up north but his (A7) hearts down south
I (D) said I'd be back; I'd better make tracks to-(A)-day
Lawdy (E) I gotta go, it's (E7) watermelon time in (A) Georgia

(A) Daddy's sitting in the sun, keeps the fish from having fun
My old coon dog is a (A7) wantin' to run
And (D) I can't reach, my little Georgia peach too (A) soon
One (E) things on my mind, it's (E7) watermelon time in (A) Georgia

(A) So long Detroit, so long friends
If you're ever down in Macon, won't you (A7) please stop in?
And (D) meet the little girl, that's always been my whole (A) world
Well, I'm (E) leaving today, it's (E7) watermelon time in (A) Georgia

(A) Yes, I'm (E) leaving today cause it's (E7) watermelon time in (A) Georgia
