I beg your pardon, mama, what did you say?

Augusta, Georgia is just no place to be.

   I think Jamaican in the  moonlight. 
  A D 
   Sandy beaches, drinking  rum every night. 
  D G 
   We got no money, mama,  but we can go; 
  A D 
   We'll split the difference, go to  Coconut Grove. 

  D G 
    Keep on talking, mama,  I can't hear. 
  A D 
    Your voice, it tickles down in side of my ear.

    I feel a tropical vac ation this year, 
  A D 
    Might be the answer to this  hillbilly fear.

    And dream Jamaica is a  big neon sign.
