Thank you, Detroit, you treated me good
But I've been here longer than I should
I enjoyed the money, but I miss my honey so
One thing's on my mind, it's watermelon time in Georgia

Well it makes a country boy get down in the mouth
When his body's livin' north but his heart's down south
I said I'd be back; I'd better make some tracks today
Lawdy I gotta go, it's watermelon time in Georgia

Daddy's sitting in the sun, keeps the fish from having fun
My old coon dog is a wantin' to run
And I can't reach, my little Georgia peach too soon
One thing's on my mind, it's watermelon time in Georgia

So long Detroit, so long friends
If you're ever down in Macon, won't you please stop in?
And meet the little girl, that's always been my whole world
Well, I'm leaving today, it's watermelon time in Georgia
