Hoverin' by my suitcase
Tryin' to find a warm place
To spend the night

Heavy rain fallin'
Seems I hear your voice callin'
"It's all right"

A rainy night in Georgia
A rainy night in Georgia
It seems like it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

Neon signs a-flashin'
Taxi cabs and buses
Passin' through the night

A distant moanin' of a train
Seems to play
A sad refrain to the night

A rainy night in Georgia
Such a rainy night in Georgia
Lord, I believe it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

How many times I wondered
It still comes out the same
No matter how you look at it or think of it
It's life and you just got to play the game

I find me a place in a box car
So I take my guitar
To pass some time

Late at night when it's hard to rest
I hold your picture to my chest
And I feel fine

But it's a rainy night in Georgia, baby
It's a rainy night in Georgia
I feel it's rainin' all over the world
Kinda lonely now and it's rainin' all over the world

Oh, have you ever been lonely, people?
And you feel that it was rainin' all over this man's world
You're talking 'bout rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin'
Rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin' rainin', rainin', rainin'
