"Life out here on the highway
has its ups and downs
but last night the Georgia rhythm
tore up another town.

So lay down a back beat, crank up your trusty Gibson
Let's give it everything we got just one more time
Loving the life we're living
Playing that Georgia rhythm
Nothing else ever made me feel so fine"

Georgia Rhythm
by The Atlanta Rhythm Section

"People down in Georgia come from near and far
To hear Richard Betts pickin' on his red guitar"

The South's Gonna' Do It Again
by The Charlie Daniels Band

"I ain’t tryin’ to tell you what to do
I just want you to know where you can go…
If you want to listen to the guitars, listen to them play
Hear some people singing that’s got something to say
Over on the table is a watermelon rind,
It don’t last long, but it sure is fine
Down in Georgia
You’re in Georgia now"

You're In Georgia Now
by The Wrights

"Read about your band in some local page
Didn't mention your name, didn't mention your name
Sweet Georgia breezes, safe, cool and warm
I headed up north, you headed north"

Left Of The Dial
by The Replacements

" It's a gospel kind of feelin'
A touch of Georgia slide
A song of pure revival
And a style that's sanctified"

by Carole King

"Johnny, you rosin up your bow
And play your fiddle hard
'Cause Hell's broke loose in Georgia
And the devil deals the cards"

The Devil Went Down to Georgia
by The Charlie Daniels Band

"Some say it came from Memphis down in Tennessee
Or it drifted in from Georgia about 1953
Just as long as it's greasy, as long as it's fast
As long as it's pumpin' honey, it's gonna last

It's the hillbilly rock, beat it with a drum
Playin' them guitars like shootin from a gun
Keepin' up the rhythm, steady as a clock
Doin' a little thing called the hillbilly rock"

Hillbilly Rock
by Marty Stuart

"Drinkin' was forbidden in my Christian country home
I learned to play the flattop on them good ol' Gospel songs
Then I heard about the barrooms just across the Georgia line
Where a boy could make a livin' playin' guitar late at night"

My Home's In Alabama
by Alabama

"As the rain falls I listen to the radio
And try to memorize the words to "Georgia On My Mind"
But we're no old song, we never stood the test of time
The lies inside the rumour left us far behind"

The Rumour
by Elton John
