The most remarkable thing about coming home to you
Is the feeling of being in motion again
It's the most extraordinary thing in the world

I have two big hands and a heart pumping blood
And a 1967 Colt .45 with a busted safety catch

The world shines
As I cross the Macon County line,
Going to Georgia

The most remarkable thing about you
Sstanding in the doorway is that it's you
And that you are standing in the doorway

And you smile as you ease the gun from my hand
I am frozen with joy right where I stand

The world throws it's light underneath your hair

Forty miles from Atlanta,
This is nowhere,
Going to Georgia

The world shines
As I cross the Macon County line,
Going to Georgia

    General Commentthis song is a terrible cover, and a perversion of the original on so many levels.
