Story behind the song
This started out as a pretty "Sweet" song idea. I sent my rough draft of the lyric/melody over to my awesome cowriter Marlin James and he gave it some beautiful wings. That's him singing and doing all the wonderful picking. He did the entire demo in his home studio. Then we had a little help from some of Nashville's finest-my long time friend and Nashville producer Terry Wendt polished up the mix, Grammy Winner Randy Kohrs added the dobro and Lyle Ronglien-is on banjo. They all brought something extra special to our song. You might recognize Randy~ "Kohrs has long been celebrated for his inventive, mood-setting work as a dobroist (that was him providing the dramatic framework on Dierks Bentley’s No. 1 hit, “What Was I Thinking.”) This was a totally blessed experience and we're just getting started!!!

Six days of workin' my tail to the bone
got the radio cranked I'm, headed home
I love Georgia but she's bittersweet
One day in heaven then I gotta leave...that
Sweet corn, Sweet tea
finger lickin' fried chicken
dipped in bee Honey
take a Sweet Ride, with my, Sweetie pie
beer on ice, clay on the tires
Sweet talk, under a, Sweet Gum tree
Cherry flavored Kisses, cause she's Sweet On Me....
SWEET JE...SUS..... my baby's Sweet ...............
Pull in the drive an she's waitin' on the porch
in her yellow tank top, cut off shorts
Runs through the gravel in her bare feet
jumps in my arms then we're off to the creek
She's sugar and spice,
She's a little sassy but that's kinda nice
Lord i hope this week flies by
cause I'm gonna get some
Sun's comin' up and I'm comin' down
love this candy high hate leavin' town
Gotta sweet tooth cravin' but she's fast asleep
I'm gonna call in sick I cant wait another week
She's sweeter than a Georgia peach
