I'm Going to Georgia
2   I once loved a young man as dear as my life, And he oft-times did promise to make me his wife.
3   The promise he fulfilled and he made me his wife, And you see what I've come to by believing his lies.
4  Come all ye fair ladies, take warning by me, Never cast your affections on a green growing tree.
5   The leaves they may wither, the flowers they may die, Some young man may fool you as one has fooled I.
