GEORGIA RAILROAD - (trad.)

Peter and I we went fishin'
Georgia Railroad I am bound;
Caught a big mud-cat, put him in the kitchen,
Georgia Railroad, Georgia gal.

I led sheep up to the pasture,
Georgia Railroad I am bound;
But my gal said: "Sheep can't you go a little faster",
Georgia Railroad, Georgia gal.

Sheep said: "Cow, I have a sore toe",
Georgia Railroad I am bound;
Cow said: "Sheep, I did not know",
Georgia Railroad, Georgia gal.

Well I'm goin' down the road and the road's all muddy,
Georgia Railroad I am bound;
But I'm so drunk I can't stand steady,
Georgia Railroad, Georgia gal.

-Greg

These verses are like Gid Tanner's. I am surprised that they haven't been entered into Mudcat before.
Not in the Traditional Ballad Index, but covered by Richie's Bluegrass Messengers site.

Yep...I looked for them in Mudcat in response to a request on an old-time group and didn't find them, so I "borrowed" Gid Tanner's lyrics from the Bluegrass Messengers site.
