Georgia On A Fast Train
By Billy Joe Shaver
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

     A                               D  
On a rainy, windy morning that's the day that i was born on
           A                              E
In the old sharecroppers one room country shack
     A                     D   
They say my mammy left me, same day that she had me
         A                E                 A
Said she hit the road and never once looked back

And I just thought I'd mention, my Grandma's old age pension
Is the reason why I'm standing here today
I got all my country learning, living and a churning
Pickin' cotton, raisin' hell, and bailin' hay

     A                    D 
I've been to Georgia on a fast train honey
A                      E    
I wasn't born no yesterday
     A                              D     
Got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
         A                E               A
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

And now sweet Caroline, I don't guess I'll ever find
Another woman put together like you all
With your wiggle and your walkin' and your big city talkin'
Your brand new shiny Plymouth rag-top car

Yeah it's hurry up and wait, in this world of give and take
Seems like haste makes for waste every time
And i pray to my soul, when you hear those ages roll
You better know I'm gonna get my share of mine

Chorus twice

         A               E                A                  
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way

I saw Billy Joe with his son Eddie in November of `95`... They did this song. If you`ve never seen Eddie play this sucker, you missed out... Great song, great guitarist... God Rest Your Soul, Eddie...
