Rainy Night In Georgia Lyrics

by Tony Joe White

Hoverin' by my suitcase
Tryin' to find a warm place to spend the night
Heavy rain fallin'
Seems I hear your voice a callin', it's all right

Rainy night in Georgia
A rainy night in Georgia
Oh, it is rainin' all over the world

Neon signs flashin'
Taxicabs and buses passin' through the night
The distant moanin' of a train
Seems to play a sad refrain onto the night

Rainy night in Georgia
Rainy all night in Georgia
Lord, it's rainin' all over the world
Rain

How many times I wondered
But it still comes out the same
No matter how you look at it or think of it
You just got to do your own thing, oh, yes

I find me a place in a boxcar
Take out my old guitar to pass some time
Late at night when it's hard to rest
I hold your picture to my chest and I'm all right

But it's rainin' down Georgia
Such a cold, old lonesome night in Georgia
Sometimes y'all it just rains
Rains

One of them old slow drizzling
Rainin'
