“I'm Gwine Away to Georgia”


"I'm gwine away to Georgia, U'm gwine away to roam, U'm gwine away to Georgia, chile, Fer to make it my home." "The turkle dove is a hollerin' 'Cause he hears my sad cry, U'm gwine away to Georgia now Fer to live till I die."


Roud links this with "The Cuckoo." I've no idea why. - RBW
