  • Maybe I should take that picture off the dashboard
    Before her memory hits the brakes and takes the wheel
    I bet she's still crying on the front porch
    Yeah, this time it's gonna take some time to heal

    'Cause I'm on my way to Tennessee
    Singing Georgia On my mind
    Chasing what they says a dream
    Thinking maybe it ain't mine
    'Cause that girl's in every song I sing
    She's in every song I write
    And six string ridin' in her seat
    Won't keep me warm tonight
    God what am I suppose to do
    There's more than miles in my rear view

    Well, I'm headed north to what I swore I wanted
    And trying not to buy into my doubts
    But I just cant seem to keep myself from wondering
    Why I'm jealous of all them headlights headed south

    'Cause I'm on my way to Tennessee
    Singing Georgia On my mind
    Chasing what they says a dream
    Thinking maybe it ain't mine
    'Cause that girl's in every song I sing
    She's in every song I write
    And six string ridin' in her seat
    Won't keep me warm tonight
    God what am I suppose to do, yeah
    There's still more than miles in my rear view

    Yeah, more than miles
    Yeah, I've been changing lanes without my mirrors
    'Cause every time I look behind me I see her
    I think I just realized how much I need her (damn)

    So I'm turning back to Georgia
    Stopping short of Tennessee
    I can't put my dreams before her
    Man I need her here with me
    'Cause that girl's in every song I sing
    She's every song I write
    And that six string ridin' in her seat
    Can sleep in back tonight
    Now I know what I'm suppose to do, yeah
    There's still more than miles in my rear view

    More than miles, yeah
