Highway ride on a cold dark night
And the sign says 20 miles to Georgia
2 a.m. coming, come again
Been too long and I wanna see my momma

Did she ever think she'd hear me say
After all the years I've been away
I know I'm getting older
Did she ever think she'd see the day
The day her boys had grown and gone away
Does she know she's getting older?

Momma's gonna cook me supper
And Georgia's gonna tuck me in
This town is gonna make me something special
I'm coming home again

Thursday night, see the front porch lights
Wooden sign says my house in on the market
It took me nineteen years, took one thousand years
Till I realized I don't belong to Georgia

Did she ever think she'd hear me say
After all the years I've been away
I know I'm getting older
Did she ever think she'd see the day
The day her boys had grown and gone away
Does she know she's getting older?

Momma's gonna cook me supper
And Georgia's gonna tuck me in
This town is gonna make me something special

She never saw the world, she could never go
Or any foreign shores, she would never go
She deserves so much more than she'll ever know
She'll ever know, oh

Momma's gonna cook me supper
Georgia's gonna tuck me in
This town is gonna make me something special

I'm coming home, I'm coming home again
I'm coming home, I'm coming home again
I'm coming home, I'm coming home baby
I'm coming home, Georgia's gonna tuck me in

I'm driving down the highway, checking the signs
Saying 20 miles away from the Georgia state line
Check it to the left, pass it on the right
Gonna make it home it if takes all night

Driving down the highway, checking the signs
Saying 20 miles away from the Georgia state line
Check it to the left, pass it on the right
Gonna make it home if it takes all night
