EIGHTY MILES OUTSIDE OF ATLANTA From the film "Something For The Boys" (1944) (Music: Jimmy McHugh / Lyrics: Harold Adamson) Viviane Blaine (feat. in the film "Something For The Boys") - 1944 Mitzi Gaynor (feat. in the film "Bloodhounds Of Broadway") - 1952 As performed by MITZI GAYNOR: There's a spot you ought to visit If you don't mind hicks And if you should ask, "Where is it?" It's way out in the sticks 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta They live in a lazy kind of way 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta, G-A They never worry, they ain't in a hurry Because they know they're gonna stay 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta, G-A They got the kinda doors that never ain't had no lockin' All they got they're perfectly willin' to share They ain't got nothin' They can't hear old opportunity a-knockin' While they're rockin' theirselves to sleep In the rockin' chair, in the rockin' chair The folks that'll meet ya, the people that'll greet ya They sort of politely swing and sway 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta, G-A (B-C-D-E-F-K-Hey!) 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta They live in a lazy kind of way 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta, G-A The folks who meet ya, the people who greet ya They sort of politely swing and sway 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta, G-A They got doors that never had any lockin' All they got they're perfectly willin' to share They can't hear old opportunity knockin' While they're rockin' theirselves to sleep In that old rockin' chair They never worry, they ain't in a hurry Because they know they're gonna stay 'Bout eighty miles outside of Atlanta, G-A Gonna leave my cares behind me You can always find me In Atlanta, Atlanta, Atlanta-lanta, G-A, G-A, G-A (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2011)
