Watermelon Time In Georgia

Thank you, Detroit, you treated me good
But Iíve been here longer than I should
I enjoyed the money, but I miss my honey so
One thing on my mind, itís watermelon time in Georgia

Well it makes a country boy get down in the mouth
When his bodyís up north but his hearts down south
I said Iíd be back; Iíd better make tracks to day
Lawdy I gotta go, itís watermelon time in Georgia

Daddyís sitting in the sun, keeps the fish from having fun
My old coon dog is a wantiní to run
And I canít reach, my little Georgia peach too soon
One things on my mind, itís watermelon time in Georgia

So long Detroit, so long friends
If youíre ever down in Macon, wonít you please stop in?
And meet the little girl, thatís always been my whole world
Well, Iím leaving today, itís watermelon time in Georgia

Yes, Iím leaving today cause itís watermelon time in Georgia
