Back Home In Georgia 

Traditional, arranged by Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Bound to Go
First published in Singing Soldiers, by John Jacob Niles, 1927, from his collecting work among African-American infantrymen in France during WWI. 

Four million soldiers, standing side by side 
Better have a mighty ship, 'cause I'm sure gonna ride 
Back home to Georgia, Georgia, 
Back to my beau lover gal in Georgia

Never gonna eat no more army food 
Gonna get myself up like a reg'lar darktown dude 
Back home in Georgia, Georgia, 
Back to my beau lover gal in Georgia 

I hope we will never have another damn war 
'cause if we do, the drafter sure will never find me there 
Back home in Georgia, Georgia, 
Back to my beau lover gal in Georgia 

White folks say a slacker's done carried off my skirt 
If this be so I sure, Lord, will do somebody dirt 
Back home in Georgia, Georgia, 
Back to my beau lover gal in Georgia
