I feel bad, 
I feel sad, 
But it won't be very long 
Before I'll be feeling glad, 
I just sigh, 
I could die

I have got Georgia blues, 
And I'm just too mean to cry; 
I don't live in Boston
I wasn't born in Maine
If I don't go to Georgia, 
I will surely go insane. 

I've got the Georgia blues, 
'Cause I've got bad news
I'm gonna catch a train, 
And I ain't gonna stop until I'm home, 
Home again

I'm not satisfied, 
Just must take a ride
Gee, but I'll be happy 
With my baby by my side
Hear that whistle blow, 
Now it's time to go, 
'Cause the train is waiting, 
Got no time to lose, 
A certain party that I know 
Offered me a ticket to Chicago. 

But he can have it, I don't want it, 
'Cause I got the Georgia blues. 
I've got those Georgia blues, 
'Cause I got bad news 
I'm gonna catch a train, 
And I ain't gonna stop until I'm home, home, 
Home again

I'm not satisfied, 
Just must take a ride
Gee, but I'll be happy 
With my sweet daddy by my side
Hear that whistle blow, 
Now it's time to go, 
My train is waiting 
Got no time to lose, 
A party wanted to marry me, way last spring, 
Even bought me a brand new diamond ring, 
But he can have it, I don't want it, 
'Cause I got the Georgia blues
