Once he recorded it, though, Charles said he thought of many ways his rendition could have been better.

Georgia on My Mind" has been recorded by many outstanding artists, but the rendition by Mr. Ray Charles, a native Georgian, which was first recorded in 1958, has been greatly enjoyed by music lovers throughout the world.

Lyrics to "Georgia On My Mind" song by Ray Charles: Georgia, Georgia The whole day through (the whole day through) Just an old sweet song Keeps Georgia. I said Georgia, Georgia A song of you (a song of you) Comes as sweet and clear As moonlight through the pines. Other arms reach out to me Other eyes smile tenderly Still in peaceful dreams I see The road leads back to you. I said Georgia, oh Georgia No peace I find (peace I find) Just an old sweet song Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind). Woah, Georgia, Georgia No peace, no peace I find Just an old, sweet song Keeps Georgia on my mind (Georgia on my mind)
