Georgia Railroad

You and I, we went fishin’
Georgia Railroad I am bound;
Catch a big mudcat, put him in the kitchen,
Georgia Railroad, I am bound.

Walked down the road till it got right muddy,
Georgia Railroad I am bound;
Talked to the girls but I ain’t got any,
Georgia Railroad, I am bound.

I got drunk and fell in a gully
Georgia Railroad I am bound;
I fell down but I never got muddy.
Georgia Railroad, I am bound.
