The night the lights went out in Georgia?

Who to the what now?

Is it just me or has anyone ever figured out what happens in this song? For the love of God it's like listening to Mission Impossible. I mean without treating it like one of those logic puzzles: "Mr. Green is sitting next to the man in the hat. Mr. Brown never wears hats . . . "

I mean, it's like someone gets cheated on . . . there's a shooting, a wrongful something or other and someone's little sister did it all . . .

It's like when a writer uses unattributed dialog for too long . . . you lose track of who is saying what to whom . . .

Apparently it was sung by the lady from the Carol Burnettt show. Who knew?

See that's just it, I did go to wikipedia . . . but if I have to do that, I might as well be sitting around the dorm room debating the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven . . . Ha!

ok... I've done some research, due diligence if you will and here's what I found.

The song centers around some people, people in Georgia. Said people were doing stuff, stuff in Georgia. While said people, in Georgia, were doing stuff in Georgia, the lights went out, in Georgia. In conclusion and without malice, forwith and heretofore thusly.

You're welcome.

And no, you can't get the part of your life back that was lost reading this.
