Lyrics

Just Like the Movies


Down in Washington, Georgia, they say grace before each meal
From eternity to eternity, you can hear it in the hills
Cows graze near the highway, sun sets through the trees
And the ice cream store sells smiles, any flavor that you please
Houses are all made of brick, surrounded by tall pines
Think I’m gonna stay here for awhile

Out at Sunday dinner, in the diner on the square
Gentlemen stand proper when she returns to hold her chair
And when old Billy passed away everyone was truly down
So they celebrated who he was, a member of their town
They raised a shot of whiskey, and praised the Lord above
For all the time they had here with him, and lessons learned in love
Think I’m gonna stay here for awhile

Cause it’s just like the movies
With Rhett Butler and Scarlet
In a dress I’d love to wear
Coming down those long steep stairs
And everybody knows your name
Cause the town just stays the same
And the deer come out to greet you, if you try to drive a mile
Think I’m gonna stay here for awhile

On the Fourth of July, while the fireworks explode
Town band plays our favorite songs so we can dance while we grow old
Underneath the stars that night, Johnny gives Mary his ring
Now would Washington be southern if we didn’t do these things
Down in Washington, Georgia, life is good here everyday
So pines can travel out on 18 wheels to get away
Think I’ll stay around here for awhile

Cause it’s just like the movies
With Rhett Butler and Scarlet
In a dress I’d love to wear
Coming down those long steep stairs
And everybody knows your name
Cause the town just stays the same
And the deer come out to greet you if you try to drive a mile
Think I’m gonna stay here for awhile
Give this life a try
(Just like the movies)
(Just like the movies)
(Just like the movies)

Cause it’s just like the movies
With Rhett Butler and Scarlet
In a dress I’d love to wear
Coming down those long steep stairs
And everybody knows your name (Everybody knows your name)
Cause the town just stays the same
And the deer come out to greet you if you try to drive a mile
Think I’m gonna stay here for awhile (Just like the movies)
Give this life a try, (Just like the movies)
Stay here for awhile, (Just like the movies)
Give this live a try
Stay here for awhile, (Just like the movies)
Give this life a try
Oh I think I’ll stay awhile
