Rainy Night In Georgia

artist: Brook Benton 1957




"RAINY NIGHT IN GEORGIA"
by: brook benton
songwriter: Tony Joe White

Hoverin' by my suitcase, tryin' to find
a warm place to spend the night
Heavy rain fallin', seems I hear your voice callin'
"It's all right."
A rainy night in Georgia, a rainy night in Georgia
It seems like it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

Neon signs a-flashin', taxi cabs and
buses passin' through the night
A distant moanin' of a train seems
to play a sad refrain to the night
A rainy night in Georgia,
such a rainy night in Georgia
Lord, I believe it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

How many times I wondered
It still comes out the same
No matter how you look at it or think of it
It's life and you just got to play the game

[Instrumental Interlude]

I find me a place in a box car,
so I take my guitar to pass some time
Late at night when it's hard to rest
I hold your picture to my chest
and I feel fine
(minor scat)
But it's a rainy night in Georgia,
baby, it's a rainy night in Georgia I
Feel it's rainin' all over the world,
kinda lonely now
And it's rainin' all over the world

Oh, have you ever been lonely, people?
And you feel that it was rainin'
all over this man's world
You're talking 'bout rainin', rainin', rainin',
rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin',
Rainin', rainin' rainin', rainin', rainin' [etc. to end]
