Mmm, mmm
Walkin' back to Georgia 
And I hope she will take me back.
Nothin' in my pockets, 
And all I own is on my back.
But she's the girl who said she loved me 
On that hot dusty Macon road, 
And if she's still around, I'm gonna settle down 
With that hard lovin' Georgia girl, 
Mmm

I'm walkin' back to Georgia; 
She's the only one who knows 
How it feels when you lose a dream 
And how it feels when you dream alone. 
She's the girl who said she loved me 
On that hot dusty Macon road 
And if she's still around, I'm gonna settle down 
With that hard lovin' Georgia girl. 
Mmm

Georgia can you hear me callin'; 
I'll be home in just a while.
And if I had to I'd be crawlin' 
Just to share another mornin' smile.
You're the girl who said you loved me 
On that hot dusty long ago, 
And if you're still around, I'm gonna settle down 
With you, my hard lovin' Georgia girl. 
Mmm

Because I'm walkin' back to Georgia, 
And I hope she will take me back. 
Nothin' in my pockets 
And all I own is on my back. 
She's the girl who said she loved me 
On that hot, dusty Macon road 
And if she's still around, I'm gonna settle down
With that hard lovin' Georgia girl.
Mmm, mmm
