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
