[INTRO]
Am C Em

[VERSE]
Em                                    G
The Yankee letter said that they'd be comin' any day
          Am                              C
And if we planned on gettin' out alive we best be on our way
    Em                                G
Our tattered grey was torn between if we should run or fight
        Am                                     C              B7
But our Southern pride swelled up inside as we dug in for the night

        G                               D
Then we heard a rider callin', "They're comin' down the road!"
        Em                             C
And the firey flash of twenty-pounders started to explode
G                                   G       G/F#    Em
Tried our best to stop them but our efforts were in vain
       C                                                   G
In the distance you could hear the sound of Dixie's last refrain

[CHORUS]
        G       G/F#    Em
They're burnin' Georgia down
C                       G
 Those devils dressed in blue
     G        G/F#   Em
They took the higher ground
C                  G
 Dying's all we can do
                     C
And let us, bound to fall
                        Em
Smell the smoke and the cinder
                        Am
They're burnin' Georgia down
C                     G
 But we never will surrender

[INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS]
G G/F# Em C G G/F# Em C G C Em Am C Em

[VERSE]
Em                                 G
Sherman left Atlanta leading sixty thousand of his best
Am                             C
Spreading the destruction over 50 miles abreast
Em                           G
Marching to the sea, leavin' nothing in their path
Am                              C                    B7
Factories, farms, and churches; nothing spared their wrath

   G                          D
Oh Christmas Day in '64, they cut off our supplies
              Em                       C
And then they offered Mr. Lincoln up Savannah as a prize
    G                               G         G/F#     Em
And though our lines are broken; we fought on till the end
    C                                            G
And pray someday we'll find a way to Dixie once again

[CHORUS]
        G       G/F#    Em
They're burnin' Georgia down
C                       G
 Those devils dressed in blue
     G        G/F#   Em
They took the higher ground
C                  G
 Dying's all we can do
                     C
And let us, bound to fall
                        Em
Smell the smoke and the cinder
                        Am
They're burnin' Georgia down
C                     G
 But we never will surrender
                        Am
They're burnin' Georgia down
C                     Em
 But we never will surrender

[OUTRO]
Em A Em
