lyrics

I wrote her name at the top of the stairs
And I ran me cold water on my nails, uh huh
I’ll wait here in Georgia
I won’t eat nothin’ til spring
My people won’t know, but you’ll know

That I’m wading the water
I’ll sit here in Georgia
I’ll wait for you all year just so
Take me away Casey Jane
Show me that country you know.

I’m here for her, and you’re here for my health
Peelin’ that corn by yourself, uh huh
She’s passin’ me by
I won’t leave til I’m dry
My people will laugh, but not how you laugh

When I’m wading the water
I’ll sit here in Georgia
I’ll wait for you all year just so
Take me away Casey Jane
Show me that country you know.
Take me away Casey Jane
Show me that country you know.
