Savannah

Everybody’s got that girl, you know the one that got away

I really don’t know why but I was thinking ’bout her today

I loved the way she’d say Georgia

With that sweet little southern drawl

And how she whispered “baby”

As the mossy oak shadows would fall

If whiskey was a time machine, I would try to drink her back to me

Yeah, I had some big city dreams, headed out on my own

To the bright lights and the neon sky, left her there all alone

This photograph is the only map as a memory disappears

And the truth is you can’t get there from here

‘Cause there are highways and byways

Running east, west, north, and south

And you can sail into the harbor, see the planes touching down

But I burned up every bridge

Just like Sherman did coming down from Atlanta

And I know there ain’t no way back to Savannah.
