I've been to Georgia on a fast train, honey
I wasn't born no yesterday

Left allemande the corner lady, do a dosado your baby
Men star left and roll it round that way
Well now you turn old partner by the right and you go left allemande
Swing your partner round and promenade
I've had a good Christian raising and an eighth grade education
Ain't no use you all treating me this way


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Now the head (side) two couples square thru 4 hands around you do
Around that corner lady, do a dosado
Do a curlique and then scoot back right there my friend
Now the boys fold, 2 ladies chain across
Well now you flutter wheel you want to move it
Go full around and then slide thru
Swing the corner, promenade
*I got all my country learning just a milking and a churning
Pickin' cotton, raising cane and baling hay


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*I like the wiggle in your walk and your big city talking
And your brand new shiny Plymouth rag top car

Ain't no use you all treating me this way

I Been To Georgia On A Fast Train
 
 

On a rainy, windy morning that's the day that I was born on
In the old sharecroppers' one-room country shack
They say my mammy left me, same day that she had me
Said she hit the road and never once looked back

And I just thought I'd mention, my Grandma's old age pension
Is the reason why I'm standing here today
I got all my country learning, living and a churning
Pickin' cotton, raisin' hell, and bailin' hay

I've been to Georgia on a fast train honey
I wudn't born no yesterday
Got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

And now sweet Caroline, I don't guess I'll ever find
Another woman put together like you all
With your wiggle and your walkin', and your big city talkin'
Your brand new shiny Plymouth rag-top car

Yeah it's hurry up and wait, in this world of give and take
Seems like haste makes for waste every time
And I pray to my soul, when you hear those ages roll
You better know I'm gonna get my share of mine

I've been to Georgia on a fast train honey
I wudn't born no yesterday
Got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

Lyrics by Billy Joe Shaver.
