Paycheck, Johnny - Georgia In A Jug Lyrics

Mason jars on the dresser filled with dollars and quarters
Savin' em' for our trip around the world
But now that you changed your tune, there'll be no honeymoon
So tonight I'm going there without you girl

I'm going down to Mexico, in a glass of tequila
Going down to Puerto Rico, in a bottle of rum
Going out to Honolulu, in a Mai Tai mug
And I'm coming back home to Georgia, in a jug

We'll never ride that bus to Mexico City, that's a pity
We'll never sail our ship into old San Juan
You'll never walk with me, on the beach at Waikiki
And we'll never share that brick suburban home

Today I'm taking that money out of that jar
Tonight I'm buying my ticket, at the corner bar

I'm going down to Mexico, in a glass of tequila
Going down to Puerto Rico, in a bottle of rum
Going out to Honolulu, in a Mai Tai mug
And I'm coming back home to Georgia, in a jug

Yes, I'm coming back home to Georgia, in a jug...

    johnny paycheck is a true outlaw country singer.. he didnt get the credit he rightly deserved. R.I.P.

    anything that won't embarass mama

    they tried to keep him away from the coke and booze, but busboys and the people that took care of the rooms took care of him......

    Miras 123

    anything that won't embarass mama based on great reviews on this game it was so hard for you guys who are not going back and to play the games

  23. Jesús Ayala

    The best songs of the Johnny paycheck, He's the man!!

    George paid for his funeral.  Pretty sure GJ didn't write who's gonna fill their shoes.

    James Brown

  38. kcsteeler

    This is great drinking song and the fact that Johnny Paycheck does it is the endorsement. I never realized that (after your fiance' ditches you) a barstool is your ticket to International passport needed. Hey no passport needed! Hey, Homeland Security take this bottle and shove it up your arse...I'm flying by barstool tonight!

    Jd Fergusson

    kcsteeler GREAT one .KC ..but take care ..Love this song

  39. Kent Baker

    Nice. Thanks for posting. Brings back memories. Good music

  40. Rcpyne

    Johnny and George sing alcoholic songs the rest are just drinking songs

  41. Morris Joncas


    Matt Beeman

    No he died in 2003

  42. john clarke

    Damn, Johnny havn' t all of these years I finally get your song. It' s not about the trips. It' s not about the times. It' s only about a man that makes beleive. Alcohol and a location . Hell I don' t have one. Johnny you paid and so Did I. Slide off of your Satin Sheets, All said and done. " no one gave a shit.

  43. barrygioportmorien1

    Great tune, my favourite song by Johnny.

  44. Jenny Freshly

    This was a great old school album. Should be in anyones must have.

  45. meangreen69Nova

    Your opinion. Hank Sr. is ok, just a little too old school for me. I like Jr. though his stuff was a mix of country and southern rock.

  46. crbdudeman

    Meh. Hank Williams Sr. is better than Jr. Jr. started doing his 'own' thing after his accident...

  47. meangreen69Nova

    This was back when country was not all popped up like it is now. And it was also back we had real kick ass in your face Waylon, Willie, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Hank Williams Jr....and Johnny Paycheck.

    Also the music was not all twangy. Just a smooth beat and good guitar riffs.

    Too bad we don't have any real "outlaw" country artists today.

    Matt Beeman

    Only Jamie Johnson
