One of these days I'm gonna find the time

And head down to the Georgia,Florida line

In a small town above the border

Lives a Southern gal who is made to order

She goes by the name of Betty Lynn

We've been apart so long, it's a sin

I would love to be with that Georgia peach

But as of right now, she is out of reach

I've been working in the cold of Maine

With the sleet, snow and rain

But what keeps me warm at night

Is the thought of my Georgia peach keeping me warm, holding me tight

When I save enough money to get there

I will hitch a ride to Portland and save on an Uber fare

Take a Greyhound to Boston

To the South Street Station I hope not to get lost in

An Amtrak bound for Miami

With a stop near my lammy

Hitch a ride to her little town

To her little house, painted brown

I knock on her door

And there I stand before

My Georgia peach

Who is now within reach

She can rock me all day and into the night

Whenever it is, it's gonna be alright.

I've been reading Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" - similar sentiments.

Thanks for reading. There's a bit of a back story to this poem.
Little over 20yrs ago, I travelled across the US and Canada on Greyhound.
Going from New York to Boston, I met a guy from North Carolina who was heading to Maine to work in a lumber mill.
I think he told me he would be gone for six months and had to leave his wife and kids back home. As well as his car. That's why he bussed it up all the way.
For some reason, it came back to me, and I just started writing stuff down.
