BlueJay Lyr Req: Slow Train through Georgia (Norman Blake) (17) Lyr Add: SLOW TRAIN THROUGH GEORGIA (Norman Blake) 28 Oct 01


Down by the county bridge the gondolas roll,
Hauling down to Birmingham, dirty halflslag coal,
I shouldn't let 'em move me on, come sunshine, rain or drought,
'Cause just like the circle says, Southern servers the South.


Hardships andtroubles, Lord you know I've had some,
Gettin' older every day, I'm a fair weather bum,
Let me tell you, good people here it's just about time.
To catch a slow train through Georgia, and ease my worried mind.

Forty miles an hour, she's rollin' down the track,
Greasy rails, red clack trails,through the long leaf pines,
Anyplace that sunshine falls is where I want to be,
Southern Sunshine Special, won't you roll me to the sea.

Lord I wish I was livin' day to day, somewhere down the track,
C'mon gal, my old pal, don't you know we'll not look back,
I'll take down this old guitar, I'll play her every day,
And let the slow train through Georgia, roll my blues away.

At least that's how I figured it out. Have fun, BlueJay
