Lyric/Ballad of a young man/artist wishing his girl the best no matter where she may go. This song is for her. Inspired by the acoustic music of folk artists, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and others. :)

Joel L. Young

Warm Georgia Rain

She's left me in the morning
In a warm Georgia rain
Where wild horses run the shore
Off Atlantic islands near old Spanish forts
She loved me for all the reasons
But she left to find her way
I remember her above me as we fell
Kissed away the night.

Where ever she may be
In a warm Georgia rain
Or on a Carolina hill
Maybe love has found her
And keeping her from harm
Maybe she's in Miami Beach
Or in a California Town
With all the stars that fell
I think of her standing there
In a warm Georgia rain.

Atlanta hears my cries
In the freezing wind
That echoes through the trees
The hours come and go
I walk the floors every night
I still don't know if they were
Silver droplets or just tears
That fall on my window pane
Like the day she left me
In a warm Georgia rain.

Where ever she may be
In a warm Georgia rain
Or walking on a summers day
Counting all the daisies
That grow among the hills
Holding hands with a former love
On a Savannah night;
I wish for her the best
In a warm Georgia rain.

I singing to her memory
From the mountain hill
I'm looking at the note she left
Stains fall on the page
In a river of regret
I can't say I was to blame
But it won't change a thing
I know I have to move on
Still I love her just the same
I still remember her kiss
As a warm Georgia rain
