What About Georgia? Submit Correct Lyrics

You draw it out like a highway
With every word that you say
Excuses for the answers that you lack
Your mama's still the steady ground you walk on every day
And your daddy's still the monkey on your back

Did you find all you thought you'd
Find out in the wild, wild west
You took a little piece of home
And you threw away the rest

You say you're livin' on the edge and
I think you're hangin' from a ledge
Too scared to hold the hand
That wants to help you up

Are you the man you thought you'd be
By the time that you turned 33
Are you still a bullet in your daddy's gun
Don't forget boy you're your mama's only son
She's at home and she's been praying for you
So what about Georgia

Saw your sister yesterday
Austin's five and on his way
Looking for some shoes that he can fill
He said that he'd be just like you
The coolest guy he ever knew
And he'd find you when he lost his training wheels

I looked in his big blue eyes
And I saw you again
He's hungry for a life that
He ain't ready to begin

You say you're livin' on the edge and
I think you're hangin' from a ledge
Too scared to hold the hand
That wants to help you up

You the man you thought you'd be
By the time that you turned 33
Are you still a bullet in your daddy's gun
Don't forget boy you're your mama's only son
She's at home and she's been praying for you
So what about Georgia

Guess you didn't realize it'd
Take you quite this long
To figure out that being free
Is right where you belong

You say you're livin' on the edge and
I think you're hangin' from a ledge
Too scared to hold the hand
That wants to help you up

Hey, you the man you thought you'd be
By the time that you turned 33
Are you still a bullet in your daddy's gun
Don't forget boy you're your mama's only son
She's at home and she's been praying for you
So what about Georgia

What about Georgia, yeah
What about Georgia, Georgia, yeah
What about Georgia
