Georgia Moon Chords

'neath Antebellum mansions
                 A           Bm            G 
Where the ancient floorboards sag 
        Bm                               A
And Spanish moss sways gently as 
    Bm        A        G...
A tattered Rebel flag
Strolling past wrought iron fences 
Tipped with rusty spikes
I felt the softness of your hand 
You were beautiful that night
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/pierce_pettis/georgia_moon_crd.html ]
We walked in long shadows
Long after it was dark
Took our shoes off by the fountain 
Down at the city park
Your flowered dress was clinging and 
Your hair was stringy wet
We kissed beneath the white cascade 
I never will forget
Georgia moon
                 G              A
Hanging down like a tear
from God's own eye
            G              A                     Bm
Laying low in the bottom of the sky 
                G                     A                Bm
Sneaking up on me like a thief in the night 
            A     		      G
Every time it makes me think of you 
       G          A                 D
Long ago beneath the Georgia moon

In the Confederate cemetery 
A sentry stood on high 
Expressionless despite 
A fuselage of fireflies
On the graves of our grandfathers
Where the grass is long and cool
It was there we laid our blanket down 
Like a flag of truce

On your mother's wide veranda 
We said our last goodbyes 
You were off to college by 
The red dawn's early light
Now your memory still shines on me
Part Heaven and part Hell 
Oh to reach for the roses, we 
Must feel the thorns as well
