ATLANTA GEORGIA STRAY (Chris Gantry) Chris Gantry - 1968 Sonny Curtis - 1968 Kenny Price - 1969 The Hondells - 1969 Johnny Duncan & Janie Fricke - 1976 JOHNNY: On a Greyhound bus trip home I was feelin' all alone When a long haired gal sat down next to me She said she was Atlanta bound to kill some time, maybe kick around 'Cause it sounded like a friendly place to be >From Chicago to Kentucky we just talked awhile And somewhere in between there I was captured by her smile But why I left the bus in Nashville's been a mystery till today 'Cause for two years I've been trackin' down that Atlanta Georgia stray (Atlanta Georgia Stray) JANIE: Well you know all living things have a secret pair of wings And I'm of the lucky ones who've learned to fly Though I don't even know your name, I can tell we're much the same 'Cause you've got that faraway look in your eyes JOHNNY: Well, right then I knew I'd found what I'd been searching for And by the tears that filled her eyes she felt the same I'm almost sure Why I left the bus in Nashville's been a mystery till today 'Cause for two years I've been trackin' down that Atlanta Georgia stray (Atlanta Georgia stray) That Atlanta Georgia stray (JF: Atlanta Georgia stray) That Atlanta Georgia stray (JF: Atlanta Georgia stray) That Atlanta Georgia.........FADE (Transcribed from the Johny Duncan recording by Mel Priddle - February 2009)
