On a rainy, windy mornin', that's the day that i was born In that old sharecroppers one room country shack They say my Mammy left me, same day that she had me Said she hit the road and never once looked back And now 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 learnin', milkin' and a churnin' Pickin' cotton, rasin' hell, and bailin' hay I've been to Georgia on a fast train, honey I wadn't born no yesterday Got a good Christian raisin' and a eighth grade education Ain't no need in y'all a-treatin' me this way And now sweet Carolina , I don't guess I'll ever find Another woman put together like you are With your wiggle in your walkin' and your big city talkin' Your brand new shiny Plymouth rag-top car Well, it's hurry up and wait in this world of give and take Seems like haste it 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 Now, I've been to Georgia on a fast train, honey I wadn't born no yesterday Got a good Christian raisin' and a eighth grade education Ain't no need in y'all a-treatin' me this way I've been to Georgia on a fast train, honey I wadn't born no yesterday Got a good Christian raisin' and a eighth grade education Ain't no need in y'all a-treatin' me this way Ain't no need in y'all a-treatin' me this way (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2012)
