Savannah
music and lyrics by Joe Croker

Arrest that woman with the sea-toned dress
And charge her with charm but never licentiousness
I don’t believe she’s just a small time goddess
No such thing exists as yet

I know you’re sweet, Savannah
Slow, slow so no man can have you yet
What’s it gonna take to shake you from memory
Or wake every day to Savannah?

Mild spring bring mild summer dew
Mild fall make for a mild winter too
It’s a mild crime to treat me like you do, Savannah

Richer girls, hey
Richer snobs, I guess
Faster girls
Faster goodbyes, yes
Soon the years halt their reckless progress
But not with you, not with you

Because I know you’re sweet, Savannah
Slow, slow so no man can have you yet
What’s it gonna take to shake you from memory
Or wake every day to Savannah?

Pirates in port, they tried to pin you down
Marching to the sea the General said,
“Don’t burn her town”
Come on, girl, slip into another gown
Escape us all, but still be beautifully around

I know you’re sweet, Savannah
Slow, slow so no man can have you yet
What’s it gonna take to shake you from memory
Or wake every day to Savannah?
