lyrics

My father said, “Son, there’s no need to be leaving
The sins that I’ve carried don’t have to be yours
Don’t punish your mother, she’s in the house weeping
Praying the Lord keep you warm.”

But I took to the road, and it only grew colder
Fell in love with the bottle, and I nearly drowned
Spent every night looking over my shoulder
The Devil, he followed me down

So I’m going back to Georgia
Back to where I left friends in the past
Oh, I’m headed to Atlanta
If you’re going nowhere, get there fast

I’m going back to Georgia
Back to where all my sins washed away
Oh, I’m headed to Atlanta
In my sin water, that’s where I’ll bathe

So I’m sorry, my son, but it’s true that I’m leaving
The sins that I’ve carried should never be yours
Go comfort your mother, she’s in the house weeping
Praying the Lord keep me warm

I got angels all around me
I got angels singing loud
I got angels all around me
And they’re pulling me back to you now
(But I’ve never been much one for crowds)

Oh Atlanta, hear me loud
I am coming home back to you now!

So I’m going back to Georgia
Back to where I left friends in the past
Oh, I’m headed to Atlanta
If you’re going nowhere, get there fast
I’m going back to Georgia
Back to where all my sins washed away
Oh, I’m headed to Atlanta
In my sin water, that’s where I’ll bathe
