"Georgia" as written by Carolyn Dawn Johnson and Troy Verges....
If I'm not over you by the time I get to Georgia
Then I guess I'll be Alabama bound
There was a time when I'd do anything for ya
But this time baby, I won't turn around

I always wanted to get married, and I thought you were the one
But you never ever asked me and I was tired of hanging on
You know a girl can only be let down so many times before she runs
And now this little bitty town's only got room for one of us

You always said I'd never leave and if I did I wouldn't go far
So I know how I must look with my tank o' gas and beat up heart
Baby I'm gone for good, you can count on that
I'm gonna keep heading west ?til I'm too far gone to come back
Yeah

And if I'm not over you, by the time I get to Georgia
Then I'll be Alabama bound
There was a time I'd do anything for ya
But this time baby, I won't turn around

I only got ten miles to go before I cross the state line
I can feel my hands shaking, ?cause they usually turn the wheel around about
this time
I heard that same ol' voice inside, I had to drown it out
So I found me a radio station playing something fast and I turned it up real
loud

And if I'm not over you by the time I get to Georgia
Then I'll be Alabama bound
There was a time I'd do anything for ya
But this time baby, I won't turn around

There was a time when I'd do anything for ya
But this time baby, oh I won't turn around
Oh I won't turn around

If I'm not over you by Georgia, then I'll head to Alabama
Roll on to Mississippi, or maybe Louisiana
I'll drive all the way to California
I won't turn around
No I won't turn around
No I won't turn around
No I won't turn around
