----------------------------------------
[1V]COME ON EV'RYBODY, THERE'S A TRAIN BOUND FOR GLORY IF YOU WANTA GET THERE YOU GOTTA RIDE. YA GOTTA HAVE A TICKET IF YA WANTA GET ON BOARD EV'RYBODY'S GOT A STORY OF THEIR LIFE. [1Br] ONE PATH'S STRAIGHT AND NARROW, THE OTHER IS A CROOKED PATH. ONE WILL TAKE YOU WHERE YOU NEED TO GO, THE OTHER IS YOUR EPITATH. [2V] COME ON EV'RYBODY, THERE'S A TRAIN BOUND FOR GLORY, IF YOU WANTA GET THERE YOU GOTTA RIDE. YA GOTTA HAVE A TICKET IF YA WANTA GET ON BOARD
EV'RYBODY'S GOT A STORY OF THEIR LIFE.
[2Br] ONE ROAD LEADS TO HEAVEN,AND ONE ROAD LEADS TO HELL. ONE ROAD'S PAVED WITH RIGHTEOUS DEEDS,THE OTHER ONE HATE, OH WELL---[Outtro/Intro][1bV]IT WAS A HOT, HUMID DAY IN OLD ATLANTA, {THEM}
GEORGIA-PICKERS SAY, IT WASN'T NO PEACH. BUT IT'S THE PITS IN EVERY THING I PLANTA, {CAUSE} YOUR DADDY DONE TOOK THE LOVE OUTTA REACH {FROM MY}HEART {MY HEART}AND MY HAND {MY HAND}. HE DONE SAID HE DON'T UNDERSTAND {HOW A}
NORTHERN BOY LIKE ME, COULD EVER FIND FAVOR WITH YOU...UNDER A GEORGIA SUN.
[INTRO][2bV] YOUR PRETTY, PLANTATION MAMA, WAS ON HER VERANDA FANNIN' IN THE HEAT, SIPPIN' ON A MINT-JULIEP IN SAVANNAH, WHEN I APPROACHED HER WITH MY PLAN TO KEEP YOUR LOVE {YOUR LOVE}IN MY HEART {MY HEART}, BEGGIN' TO HER TO LET ME MAKE A START WITH YOU {WITH YOU} AND YOUR LOVE {YOUR LOVE} AND ALL HER BLESSIN'S FOR US...UNDER A GEORGIA SUN.[CH] UNDER A GEORGIA SUN... LIFE CAN BE DIFFRENT FOR EV'RYONE, UNDER A GEORGIA SUN, SUCCESS IS MEASURED BY YOUR POINT OF VIEW. IF A BOY FROM THE WRONG SIDE OF THE TRACKS, TRIES TO WOO IN THE WEALTHY CLASS, HE'S CONSIDERED POOR, WHITE TRASH, UNTIL ACCEPTED BY LOVE... UNDER A GEORGIA SUN...[SOLO][3bV]A MAN'S GOTTA DO WHAT A MAN'S GOTTA DO EVEN IF CONSIDERED A BOY. SOMETIMES YA GOTTA TAKE MATTERS INTO YOUR OWN HANDS IF YA
WANTA TURN A HEARTACHE INTO JOY. SO I
TOOK MY GIRL AND I RAN, FAR FROM OLD ATLANTA AND SAVANNAH LANDS, TO A HIDDEN COVE {ON UP THE} BEACH. FAR ENOUGH OUT OF REACH TO SHARE OUR LOVE...UNDER A GEORGIA SUN. [Repeat CH]...[TAG/OUTTRO]
UNDER A GEORGIA SUN...{UNDER A GEORGIA SUN}...UNDER A GEORGIA SUN {UNDER A GEORGIA SUN}...UNDER A GEORGIA SUN {UNDER A GEORGIA SUN}...UNDER A GEORGIA SUN...{UNDER A GEORGIA SUN}...[JAM ENDING]
