[Going Back to Georgia  (N. Griffith, A. Duritz, & B. Claffin)]

E    A     E    A    B7   B7    E    B7

            E               A
Oh the city snow makes your brown eyes shine
            E                        A
We've gotta look real hard to find a reason to cry
B7                                              E         B7
New York, New York is a friend to the traveling kind

And I'm coming around from years of hard times
He's chased me down through the towns and the miles
Once stilled by love he was bound to roll on by
[ Tab from: ]
                          A                  E            A  E
Chorus:        And if you feel my love won't leave you
                           Dbm    A                 B
               And if your sorrow -   has been your share
                           E         A              E     A  E
                If you are traveling -  back to Georgia
                         B7        (no chord)    E
                Won't you take  -   me with you there

E    A     E    A    B7   B7    E    B7

Well I'm long gone darling, lonesome blue
I been thinking of leaving, I been thinking of you
But that big city singing, man I like the way that it shines

Iwas half a mile from Canada waiting on a train
Wondering and wishing I could disappear again
I been killed by love still it takes me to the end of the line


I've been troubled by a love untrue
Its a fool who will drown in his fountain of youth
I can see that now as I'm walking and talking with you

I been blinded by the sun, wasted in the rain
Scattered in America, and I'm scatterin' again
But if you're going south darling, I guess I'm traveling with you

-CHORUS-  (x2 and fade out with "Take me with you")
