Going To Georgia

This song is by The Mountain Goats and appears on the album Zopilote Machine (1994).

The most remarkable thing
About coming home to you
Is the feeling of being in motion again.
It's the most extraordinary thing in the world.

I have two big hands
And a heart pumping blood
And a 1967 Colt .45
With a busted safety catch.

The world shines,
As I cross the Macon county line,
Going to Georgia.

The most remarkable thing
About you standing in the doorway
Is that it's you,
And that you're standing in the doorway.

And you smile as you ease the gun from my hand,
And I am frozen with joy right where I stand.
The world throws its light underneath your hair.
40 miles from Atlanta, this is nowhere,
Going to Georgia.

The world shines,
As I cross the Macon county line,
Going to Georgia.
