Georgia Rose was written for the 1921 musical revue Put and Take.


Georgia Rose
Georgia Rose
You’re the most precious rose Dixie grows
Now some folks don’t think its right
‘Cause your skins dark as night
You know you’ve a heart lily white

To the good Lord up above
We all look just the same
Don’t hang your head down in shame

Georgia Rose
Georgia Rose
Don’t be blue ‘cause you’re black
Georgia Rose
