Highway ride on a cold dark night 
And the sign says 20 miles to Georgia 
2am coming come again 
Been too long and I wanna see my momma 

Did she ever think she'd hear me say 
After all the years I've been away 
I know I'm getting older 
Did she ever think she'd see the day 
The day her boys had grown and gone away 
Does she know she's getting older? 

Momma's gonna cook me supper 
And Georgia's gonna tuck me in 
This town is gonna make me something special 
I'm coming home again 

Thursday night see the front porch lights 
Wooden sign says my house in on the market 
It took me 19 years, took 1000 years 
Till I realized I don't belong to Georgia 

Did she ever think she'd hear me say 
After all the years I've been away 
I know I'm getting older 
Did she ever think she'd see the day 
The day her boys had grown and gone away 
Does she know she's getting older? 

Momma's gonna cook me supper 
And Georgia's gonna tuck me in 
This town is gonna make me something special 

She never saw the world she could never go 
Or any foreign shores, she would never go 
She deserves so much more 
Than she'll ever know 
She'll ever know oh 

Momma's gonna cook me supper 
Georgia's gonna tuck me in 
This town is gonna make me something special 
I'm coming home, I'm coming home again 
I'm coming home, I'm coming home again 
I'm coming home, I'm coming home baby 
I'm coming home, Georgia's gonna tuck me in 

I'm driving down the highway 
Checking the signs 
Saying 20 miles away from the Georgia state line 
Check it to the left, pass it on the right 
Gonna make it home it if takes all night 

Driving down the highway 
Checking the signs 
Saying 20 miles away from the Georgia state line 
Check it to the left, pass it on the right 
Gonna make it home if it takes all night
