Going to Georgia
The Mountain Goats Lyrics


The most remarkable thing about coming home to you
Is the feeling of being in motion again,

It's the most extraordinary thing in the world.
I have two big hands
And a heart pumping blood
And a 1967 Colt .45
With a busted safety catch.

The world shines
As I cross the Macon county line,
Going to Georgia.

The most remarkable thing about you standing in the doorway is that it's you
And that you are standing in the doorway

And you smile as you ease the gun from my hand
I am frozen with joy right where I stand.
The world glows its' slide underneath your hair.
40 miles from Atlanta, this is nowhere.

Going to Georgia

The world shines
As I cross the Macon county line,
Going to Georgia

Going to Georgia

The world shines
As I cross the Macon county line,

my girlfriend moved me down to Georgia, away from a piece of shit broken home in Missouri. most of that car ride down was filled with singing the mountain goats off key as i built up hope for a new life.

Hope you're doing well now

Angus Palmer

Best of luck, wherever you are now. Here's hoping you're in a good place geographically, mentally, and emotionally.

Justin Simmons

Hopefully everything's going well down there man. Similar situation for me I moved to El Paso from LA to be with my girlfriend and to shake suicidal thoughts cause I was up to my fucking neck in debt. Things have really started to fall into place since I met her. The change of scenery really helped.

I think this song is actually improved by low-bitrate encoding.

So true I love this part of it

A Brainerd

Tbh makes sense. I find I don't enjoy some of this stuff as much when I use nicer headphones compared to car speakers

Jack Phelps

double lo fi

DrizzlyEarth

Oh fucking hell yes. The best part is that it's not even intentional. This is one of the songs John wrote in his apartment before The Mountain Goats became a thing. All he had was a boombox and a lo-fi cassette recorder. Thats the weird mechanical noise you hear in the background of a lot of their older songs. The whirring of the tape as it's recording them.
