OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
On a rainy windy mornin' on the day I was born
In that old share croppin' one room country shack
They said my mammy left me, the day before she had me
Said she hit the road and never once looked back

4 little ladies promenade one time around
Come on back, swing and promenade
I got a good Christian raisin' and an 8th grade education
Ain't no need in ya'll treatin' me this way


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head (side) pair promenade 1/2 way round
Side (head) pair do the right and left thru
Square thru & go now, 4 hands around somehow
Do a dosado and eight chain 4
I've been to Georgia on a fast train honey
Swing a little lady and promenade
I got a good Christian raisin' and an 8th grade education
Ain't no need in ya'll treatin' me this way


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

4 ladies promenade one time around
Come on back swing your man around
Join hands circle to the left go movin' round
Do an allemande left with the corner, weave the ring
I've been to Georgia on a fast train honey
Swing your little lady, promenade
I got a good Christian raisin' and an 8th grade education
Ain't no need in ya'll treatin' me this way


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Oh my sweet Carolina I don't guess I'll ever find
Another woman put together like you are
I love the wiggle in your walkin', your big city talkin'
And your brand new shiny Plymouth rag top car

4 boys promenade one time around
Come on back, swing and promenade
I got a good Christian raisin' and an 8th grade education
Ain't no need in ya'll treatin' me this way

Bow to the partner, corners all and whoa!

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.
