Lyrics

SWEET GEORGIA SMILE
Words And Music By Johnny Rodgers

What could I ever pull out of my sleeve that would make you believe what I swear?
Nickels and pennies, I haven't got any more money to show you I care,
But I'd empty these pockets to buy fancy rockets to light up your name in the air;
Earrings that dangled and necklaces spangled with diamonds like starlights,
But neither would show you that. ..

I'm gonna keep you and rock you to sleep
In a simple and sweet lullaby.
No. and I'll never stop 'till climb to the top
Of this world just to dive in your baby-blue eyes;
And if I can't make it. or if I should fall, I would say it was worth all the while ..
For that Sweet Georgia Smile.

Where do the days go? They vanish like rainbows; before we can touch them they fly.
And who knows why all of us live on this ball of dust, waiting and wondering why?
The only conclusion is it's all illusion, so pick up your head and don't cry.
No need for sorrow; if there's no tomorrow, I'll still be beside you, My soul will reside with you ...

I'm gonna keep you and rock you to sleep
In a simple and sweet lullaby.
No, and I'll never stop 'till climb to the top
Of this world just to dive in your baby-blue eyes;
And if I can't make it, or if I should fall, I would say it was worth all the while ..

'Cause I'll keep you smiling as time takes its toll,
Kissing your lips when they're tender and old;
And when day becomes night and the night becomes cold,
You'll never notice, 'cause I'll still be holding you ...

I'm gonna keep you and rock you to sleep
In a simple and sweet lullaby.
No, and I'll never stop 'till climb to the top
Of this world just to dive in your baby-blue eyes;
And if I can't make it, or if I should fall, I would say it was worth all the while ..
For that Sweet Georgia Smile.
