Mmmmm…

Jim Croce, one of the greatest classic rock vocalists and lyricists in the genre, was a true artist and gifted musician. Without any studio help throughout this “Walking Back To Georgia” track, you can hear how natural and beautiful Jim’s voice was.

” I’m walkin’ back to Georgia, she’s the only one who knows how it feels when you lose a dream and how it feels when you dream alone.”

When comparing this original demo version to a live or recorded studio rendition, there is no difference. Jim was the rare, wonderful talent that only brought his voice and heart to the mic, and unfortunately passed too soon.

Interesting Fact: Before his music career took off, Jim taught special education at Palansky Junior High in Chester, Pennsylvania.

We can just picture Jim walking alone down a dusty road  and only wish that this mirage was a reality.

We miss you, your words and your voice every day Jim. Rest in peace…

+ Walkin’ Back To Georgia Lyrics +

I’m walkin’ back to Georgia
And I hope she will take me back
Nothin’ in my pockets
And all I own is upon my back

But she’s the girl who said she loved me
On that hot dusty Macon road
And if she’s still around
I’m gonna settle down
With that hard lovin’ Georgia girl

I’m walkin’ back to Georgia
She’s the only one who knows
How it feels when you lose a dream
And how it feels when you dream alone

Georgia can you hear me callin’
Oh I’ll be home in just a while
And if I had to I’d be crawlin’
Just to share another mornin’ smile

But you’re the girl who said you loved me
On that hot dusty long ago
And if you’re still around
I’m gonna settle down
With you my hard lovin’ Georgia girl…because

I’m walkin’ back to Georgia
And I hope she will take me back
Nothin’ in my pockets
And all I own is upon my back
