Georgia: Ray Charles – Georgia On My Mind

Georgia: Ray Charles – Georgia On My Mind

Georgia Shipburn Ray CharlesGeorgia: Ray Charles – Georgia On My Mind

This is a fine, old-fashioned song. Every Monday night I used to go for tea to my Grandad’s house in South Shields.

He would sit at the piano and play this, singing the lines with my name in.

I’d never heard a song with my name.

I thought he’d written it for me. It was so cool.
