Sweet Georgia Brown --- Ken Casey/Maceo Pinkard & Ben Bernie

 

[E7]She just got here yesterday. Things are hot here now they say. Thereís a new gal in town.
[A7]Gals are jealous, thereís no doubt. All the guys just rave about Ė Sweet Georgia Brown.
[Em]And ever [B7]since she came, the [Em]common [B7]folks exclaim and say: 

[E7]No gal made has got a shade on Sweet Georgia Brown.
[A7]Two left feet but oh so neat has Sweet Georgia Brown.
[D7]They all sigh and want to die for Sweet Georgia Brown
Iíll tell you just [G]why, [D7]you know I donít [G]lie (not [B7]much!).
[E7]Itís been said she knocks Ďem dead when she lands in town.
[A7]Since she came, why itís a shame how sheís cooled Ďem down.
[Em]Fellas [B7]she canít get, are [Em]fellas [B7]she ainít met.
[G]Georgia claimed her, [E7]Georgia named her, [A7]Sweet [D7]Georgia [G]Brown. 

[E7]All you gals will get the blues, all you pals will surely lose, and thereís but one excuse.
[A7]Now Iíve told you who she was, and Iíve told you what she does, give this gal her dues.
[Em]This pretty [B7]maidenís prayer [Em]is answered [B7]anywhere. 

[E7]No gal made has got a shade on Sweet Georgia Brown.
[A7]Two left feet but oh so neat has Sweet Georgia Brown.
[D7]They all sigh and want to die for Sweet Georgia Brown
Iíll tell you just [G]why, [D7]you know I donít [G]lie (not [B7]much!).
[E7]All those tips the porter slips to Sweet Georgia Brown.
[A7]They buy clothes at fashion shows for one dollar down.
[Em]Fellas, wonítcha [B7]tip your hats. [Em]Oh boy, ainít [B7]she the cats?
[G]Whoís that mister? [E7]íTainít her sister, Itís [A7]Sweet [D7]Georgia [G]Brown.
