Georgia, I swear I never seen such a smile
Gorgeous enough to make an angel's heart run wild
Your lazy eyes and small-town lies
Have got me in your spell
Your drive-in boys and back-seat noise
And oh, you learned so well

Oh, oh, oh, so how was I to know
You got me, you got me right now
Georgia, your daddy was high the night he dreamed up you
Georgia, the stars were flyin' the night that you came through

Christmas in your eyes
Oh, what a nice surprise
Oh, oh, oh, and now I miss you so
But baby, I'm comin' back to you

Georgia, we will be together, dear
If they ever let me out of here
They will say that it's not true
But I did it all for you
Georgia, won't you tell them for me, dear?

Georgia, girl I never lived through a night like that
Sure enough got your lovin' where I like it at
Moonlight through the pines
Oh, oh, oh, but how were we to know

That wasn't moonlight, they were searchlights, oh no
Georgia, we will be together, dear
If they ever let me out of here
They will say that it's not true
But I did it all for you
Georgia, won't you tell them for me, dear?
Georgia, we will be together dear
Oh, my dear
If they ever let me out of here

    General CommentSeems like the song is about a man spending a night with an underage girl, then getting sent to jail for it.

    General CommentI just realized that this song is about jail bait. Man. The 70s were a strange time.

    General CommentI'm not sure he's in jail for jail bait but he's definitely in jail! I think he did a robbery to get money for the two of them, i.e., "I did it all for you." Great song!

    Song MeaningGeorgia -
    A beautiful young girl who is being sexually abused by her father and then later by town boys. Her life becomes a myriad of promiscuous sex.
    Boz writes from the point of view of the man who is in love with her (perhaps a father figure) who kills the father to stop the abuse.
    My humble interpretation
