Rainy Night in Georgia - Brook Benton/Randy Crawford/John Holt/Conway Twitty and Sam Moore

    
Rainy Night in Georgia
Hoverin' by my suitcase, 
Tryin' to find a warm place to spend the night
Heavy rain fallin', 
Seems I hear your voice callin' "It's all right."
A rainy night in Georgia, a rainy night in Georgia
It seems like it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

Neon signs a-flashin', 
Taxi cabs and buses passin' through the night
A distant moanin' of a train seems to play a sad refrain to the night
A rainy night in Georgia, such a rainy night in Georgia
Lord, I believe it's rainin' all over the world
I feel like it's rainin' all over the world

How many times I wondered
It still comes out the same
No matter how you look at it or think of it,
It's life and you just got to play the game

[Instrumental Interlude]

I find me a place in a box car, 
So I take my guitar to pass some time
Late at night when it's hard to rest, 
I hold your picture to my chest and I feel fine
But it's a rainy night in Georgia, baby, 
It's a rainy night in Georgia
I feel it's rainin' all over the world, kinda lonely now 
And it's rainin' all over the world

Oh, have you ever been lonely, people
And you feel that it was rainin' all over this man's world
You're talking 'bout rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin',
Rainin', rainin',  rainin', rainin', rainin'
