Tanya Tucker - Blood Red And Going Down

 

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

 

Daddy said, "Now come girl

We're headed down the road to Augusta"

And frankly through his clenched teeth

He called Mama's name and then he cussed her

 

He said, "Girl, you're young

But some dude has come along and stole your mother"

But you can't steal a willin' mind

'Cause mama's always lookin' for a lover

 

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

 

With dusty teardrops on his face

My daddy cried an' big steps he was takin'

Halfway runnin' to keep up

My shorter legs were so tired and shakin'

 

"Where did I go wrong, girl?

Why would she leave us both this way?"

At times like these, a child of ten

Never knows exactly what to say

 

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

 

We searched in every barroom

An' honky-tonk as well

An' finally daddy found them

And Lord, you know, the rest is hard to tell

 

He sent me out to wait

But scared I looked back through the door

An' daddy left them both

Soakin' up the sawdust on the floor

 

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down

That Georgia sun was blood red and goin' down
