    Steel, glass and concrete
    Kiss a dark Georgia sky
    Tall pretty buildings
    Pleasing to my eye

    Grit and elegance
    Rough and fine
    The jewel in the crown
    Below the Mason Dixon line

    Pouring rain
    Each drop
    Wet with history
    Past, present and future
    Washing something away
    Making something grow
    History such a beautiful thing
    In the land of Scarlet O’Hara
    The Land of “Daddy” King

    Let it rain
    Let it rain
    Let it rain

    Wash me into cosmopolitan euphoria
    Yes
    I’m digging the rain
    Atlanta Georgia

    BE... you are so picturesque in
    your flows...
    i could sit and read a picture book
    and it wouldn't compare to the
    portraits you paint!
    TRUE ART!
