Tall Trees in Georgia
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


Tall trees in Georgia they grow so high they shade me so
And sadly walking through the thicket I go

The sweetest love I ever had I left aside
Because I did not want to be any man's bride

But now I'm older and married I would be
I found my sweetheart but he would not marry me

When I was younger the boys all came around
But now I'm older and they've all settled down

Control your mind my girl and give your heart to one
For if you love all men you'll be surely left with none

Tall trees in Georgia they grow so high they shade me so
And sadly walking through the thicket I go

This women stops my life in its tracks and makes me sit back and listen to her voice and words, almost hypnotic in form.
A real gem we can all treasure. A blessing to have her music always in our lives.

I am glad that there are so many others who feel the same about this singer. It seems with time she only gets more popular (thanks to things like Youtube). I first heard Eva Cassidy's Songbird CD well over a decade ago and by luck I was alone and I was sitting down. Even then I nearly fell from the chair to the floor. I could not believe my ears. Every song was a storm of emotion, and every kind of bittersweetness flooded my living room. My core was washed away. No single singer has cut me open so thoroughly before, or since (save when I hear her over again). I love many different types of singers, mostly female, but this one, this lady was (and is) at the highest level of soulfulness and execution (execution meaning her performance rendered, and maybe her ability to kill with it the nonchalantness in any half-hearted listeners). I rarely get the same feeling listening to today's great sellers of song -- oh, maybe for a moment here and there, a song now and again.. I keep listening and I can always find something I like if I search. But with Eva the searching ends, there is nothing better beyond. Eva's voice is another level, another kind of never-before experienced instrument, one that somehow creates less distance between the willing listeners' hearts (and less distance from the single listeners mind and heart), and thusly our eyes are either opened for seemingly the first time, or closed in a blissful way, and we are left collectively floating hopelessly and happily in her melody and soulfulness. I was crestfallen after listening to her for the first time to learn that she had died in the nineties. She was born with the most perfect voice I've ever heard, and I'm not too young-- (well in my heart I am).

Sometimes it is said that God calls some of his own home young,so that they will be safe with him,and never get tainted or bitter on earth. I believe she's still singing!🕊💖
