Georgia On My Mind

Recorded/Published: 1990
During the Papa's Got a Brown New Robe sessions Harry Nilsson recorded a medley of "Yesterday" and "Georgia On My Mind".

Ray Charles's recording of "Georgia On My Mind" was a hit in 1960. The song was later adopted as the state song of Georgia.

When Paul McCartney composed the tune for "Yesterday", the song seemed familiar to him and he asked many others if they recognized it before he felt comfortable recording it.

Many have suggested that "Georgia on My Mind" is the song which most resembles McCartney's tune.

Ray Charles was Nilsson's favorite singer and McCartney one of his favorite songwriters.

Lyrics:

Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through,
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind ...
