Why Georgia Lyrics - John Mayer



Review The Song (34)


I am driving up 85 in the
kind of morning that lasts all afternoon
just stuck inside the gloom

Four more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive
and leave it all behind

Cause I wonder sometimes
about the outcome
of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia, why?

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with
wood in places to make it feel like home
but all I feel's alone
It might be a quarter life crisis
or just the stirring in my soul

Either way, I wonder sometimes
about the outcome
of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why, why Georgia, why?

So what, so I've got a smile on me
but it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down

Everybody is just a stranger but
that's the danger in going my own way
I guess it's the price I have to pay
still "Everything happens for a reason"
is no reason not to ask myself

If I'm living it right
Am I living it right?
Why, tell me why
Why, why Georgia why?

music walks with u | Reviewer: avinna | 9/11/13

Someone listed, indians don't listen english songs....that was a total cliche....well n e ways i'v been listening to john mayer for a while nd 1 thing i know bout him is that, he is really lonely nd his music brings peace to people dealing with same emotions..others enjoy the music...some enjoy the vovals..i love easiness while delivering such a good blue music..

Tastes sweet | Reviewer: Jared | 12/19/10

Everybody has their own taste in music. But that doesn't mean we all can't tell others what we think in a song. For example, this song, Why Georgia, tastes sweet. It is the type of music I usually listen to. However, I do like some metal, hard rock, alternative and original rock. That doesn't mean I can't like sad, classical music, like John Mayer's. Besides, different tastes in music are actually not supposed to be bad or good. If we all have pretty much different tastes, then why should we be so rude to other people? Opinions, guys.

pleasure | Reviewer: ARIK | 9/18/10

I am from the country INDIA. Well people believe that we donot listen to english songs quite a lot but it is totally different right now.. Well JOHN MAYER is my idol .. Its everyday for me that i listen to why georgia , back to you and body is wonderland and thats my all time my favourite

I love this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/15/10

I am a totally dedicated Coldplay girl. But John Mayer is now the only other muso I ever want to listen to, apart from them. I recorded some of his shows on cable to learn more about his music after booking to see him in May this year in Sydney. I knew not much beforehand. But I just love this song. Love it.

jm and dmb | Reviewer: iuhul | 1/7/10

this song is amazing as most of jm's...just wanna say that i've been to a dave matthews band's concert cause jm was playing with them...i dont know if you like dmb or not but YOU SHOULD! now im addicted to both of them and cant wait till they get together again...theyre both great musicians, singers and lyricists...listen to dmb's "#41" (if you still havent) and youll see what im talking about

John Mayer... | Reviewer: Girl in the Green Hoodie | 12/16/09

He is such an amazing musician and songwritter. John Mayer inspires me soooo much, and I'm in love with his voice. Every morning I listen to Stop This Train(which if you haven't heard...you need to), and just feel like it's okay that I'm leaving for college after this Summer. His music is real and it speaks to people; I think it's a lot more expressive than some of the more popular things playing on the radio. Plus, Your Body is a Wonderland is, like, completely swoon-worthy...because did I mention his voice is like magic?!

GA the State | Reviewer: JM fan | 11/30/09

The song is about living in Georgia, not a girl named Georgia. He is talking about driving route 85 (not 85 mph), how he's unhappy living alone in GA, and how he's thinking about leaving town.

Excellent song.. (esp b/c I also live alone in GA and wonder how or why I ended up here)


a musial admirer | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/1/09

there's somthing about john mayer. you can't really put him into a genre because he seems to have created one all his own...he's a terrific singer and an unmatched lyricist.

as for this song, it's beautiful. i see music in color, and this is bright green, sky blue, and summer yellow, with some snow white thrown in. =]

The REAL Story | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/30/08

As for the origin of this song, I was just at John Mayer's Summer Tour 2008 concert in, where else, Georgia. Before playing this song, he explained how it was created. Once at the beginning of his career (which did start in Atlanta), he was on his way to a small gig and was driving down 85 when he realized that he had forgotten his guitar. When he arrived, an hour and a half late, he explained and apologized to the waiting audience of four...in song. "I was driving down 85 and..." When this on the spot tune was combined with a chorus he had been working on already, "Why Georgia" was created. Hope that enlightens anyone who was wondering.

middle aged fan | Reviewer: Bill @54 | 4/29/08

John Mayer posesses all three songwriting talents (musician, lyricist, singer) in such deep proportion that it doesn't seem fair. If he keeps the balance of his trinity of talents, he will surpass all that came before him.

middle age fan | Reviewer: Bill Dotson | 4/29/08

John Mayer is the perfect combination of talents: musician, lyricist, singer. It's almost not fair how one person can have all three gifts in such depth. At 54, I have finally found my favorite songwriter / singer. If he continues to keep the balance of his trinity of talents, he will surpass all others before him.

this is just so ...AMAZING | Reviewer: Ahmed | 3/10/08

john mayer is the greatest player i've seen,even though i know that there are many old great singers and guitar player but the effect his voice and music has on me is way better that any one else would leave..i just listen to him and feel so relaxed.his words and music moves all the emotions inside me.
he's just amazing .i hope he gets more successful and i cant wait to hear his new songs along the years to come!!

why georgia... | Reviewer: rock | 1/15/08

ive been going through a lot lately and this song really made me question if i am living it right. culminating my master's program..and not knowing the future...its quite scarry...and this song sets me right....its ok not to know. Sometimes i just keep driving just to be at peace with life and its beauty that many of us neglect to see.
