     emmmmm.....  Our official state song ......adopted by the Georgia State Senate and introduced by the man himself at the Capitol years ago.  Mighty pretty.  Want to guess the name of the song? Hint.....It's an old sweet song.

     

     

    The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                  Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                  Odds never change .....but probability does.

            I will always remember him performing in the Blues Brothers movie...a classic musical performance by Ray.

            ... the lottery never fails to surprise!

                    Rest in peace, ray.  You touched so many lives. Myself included. We love you and will miss you and your voice. I hope that  "they" will commerate you by playing every song and tune you ever made and performed. One of your biggest fans. (until the dawn)  See you later.

                          georgia, georgia, the whole day through

                          just an old sweet song keeps georgia on my mind

                          georgia, georgia, a song of you

                          comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pine.

                          love to nibble those micey feet.

                            Sing it emilyg, sing it... I loved to hear Ray Charles sing America, & Georgia. The only other person that comes close to singing Georgia with such spirit & passion is Michael Bolton.
