Georgia Blood written and recorded by Marty Robbins
C I step across the railroad track F Climb a fence and walk out through a field G7 And for a while I breath fresh air C And feel that sun I can't believe it's real
For eighteen months I've been locked up F Iron bars is all that I could see G7 I ran away from prison C I've been in the Nashville penitentiary
F I came up here from Georgia C Everyone said I had talent I could write
Nashville's where the money is G7 They all said my songs are out of sight
C So I caught a bus in Waycross F I enjoyed the ride a quiet winter night G7 Head straight to 16th avenue to show C The kind of songs that I could write
Well the first door that I opened F Was a wrong one and it's kinda like a dream G7 I met a music man that shook my hand C And said we both make quite a team
He handed me a contract F With a lot of words I didn't understand G7 But he told me not to worry C I could trust him cause he was an honest man
F He told me I should get a job C So I hired on in a restaurant here in town Wasn’t very long till I heard G7 Some of my songs being played around
C But he told me they weren’t selling F Though a ballad I wrote went to number one G7 He said keep on writing keep your job C And bring me songs that you have done
I kept my job kept writing F Cause I really thought I’d find that pot of gold G7 But the story that I’m telling C Is a story that’s been told and retold
He said he spent the money F I had made from promoting songs he really tried G7 It got so I could never see him C When he saw me coming he would hide
F I waited for my money why it never came C I couldn’t understand
Till one day I saw him in a car G7 That must have cost at least ten grand C Then finally I caught him F And he said I’m sorry kid you’ve had bad luck G7 He said go back to Georgia C Then he laughed and handed me a hundred bucks
I took the hundred dollars F And in a flash a thought was burning in my mind G7 I had a big surprise for him C And he’d regret he stole songs that were mine
My temper flared and I told myself F An hour from now he wouldn’t be alive G7 Then I ran to a pawn shop C Where I bought an automatic forty-five
F My temper got the best of me C For a while there was no guiding star
There was no one to talk to G7 So I walked back and I waited by his car
C It wasn’t very long until I saw F Him walking to the parking lot G7 Then I stepped out beside him and I said C Would you look here see what I’ve got
His face was white as powder F And he dropped the cigarette he tried to light G7 He said don’t pull that trigger C Lord have mercy please don’t kill me here tonight
I’ll give you all your money F If you’ll wait until tomorrow then you’ll see G7 But a Georgia boy don’t like a thief C There was too much Georgia blood in me
F So I pulled the trigger C And the bullet hit him squarely in the chest
Then I shot him one more time G7 For every button sewed upon his vest
C It was then and only then I realized F The awful wrong that I had done G7 In disbelief I stood there until somebody C Walked up and they took the gun
F I wish I’d never wrote a song C Or ever heard of Nashville Tennessee I wish that I were home in Georgia G7 But I guess that I will never be
C I wish I could stay here F In this field so fresh and green G7 But better yet I wish that I could C Wake and find this just a dream
