Lyrics

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down Daddy said now come girl we`re headed down the road to Augusta And thinkin` through his clenched teeth he called Mama`s name then he cussed her He said girl you`re young but some dude has come along and stole your mother Aw but you can`t steal a willin` mind whose mama`s always lookin` for a lover That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down With dusty teardrops on his face my daddy cried and big steps he was takin` And halfway runnin` to keep up my shorter legs were so tired and shakin` Where did I go wrong girl? Why would she leave us both this way? At times like these a child of ten never knows exactly what to say That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down

We searched in every barroom and honky-tonk as well And finally Daddy found them but Lord you know the rest is hard to tell He sent me out to wait but scared I looked back through the door And Daddy left them both soakin` up the sawdust on the floor That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down That Georgia sun was blood red and goin` down
