GEORGIA ON MY MIND
Words by Stuart Gorell Music: by Hoagy Carmichael
-------------------------------------------
F        A7       Dm            Gm7     Ef9
Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through
       F/Abass   Afdim      Gm7     C13  Bf13  Am7  D7-9
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on   my   mind,
Gm7           C7(+5-9)
Georgia on my mind.
F        A7       Dm        Gm7
Georgia, Georgia, a song of you
Ef9     F/Abass    Afdim    Gm7       C7          F6   
Comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines.
Ef9......F...A7-9

Dm    Gm6/dbass      Dm     Bf7
Other arms     reach out to me,
Dm   Gm6/dbass        Dm   G7
Other eyes     smile tenderly,
Dm       Gm6/Dbass  D7/F#bass  Afdim
Still in peaceful   dreams I   see,
    Am7        Efdim   G9  C7-9
The road leads back to you.
F        Ef9    Dm           Gm7
Georgia, Georgia, no peace I find,
        F/Abass   Afdim      Gm6
Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia
C7    F   Ef9    F6
on my mind.

Here's what I came up with in the key of D. I could work on easier chord
shapes in F, but isn't that out of your vocal range? I've tried to keep
the bluesy feel of all those altered and extended chords the same 
(or nearly so). I know there are several barre chords and you're not 
comfortable with them, but they are necessary to keep the bluesy feel.
Maybe this will give you some incentive to try harder at learning them.
I can try to water it down more if that is necessary. You can ignore all
the extended chords (13, 7-9, 6 etc.) and just play the basic major or
minor chord (Except for dim7 chords which really are pretty easy to play
anyway) and everything will still fit. Let me know if I've helped or
hindered.

* = I'm not really sure what to call this, but it sounds good to me. Besides
these are mostly passing chords that are only played for a beat or two. Let me
kmow what you think about these.

I've found these type of chord diagrams to be the most succinct and complete,
but not everyone is used to them so here are some explanations about them.
Ask if anything is still unclear.

Each line is a separate fret
Numbers denote suggested fingering. Some strings have two fingers on them
  in order to show a barre.
Colons (:) mean not to play the string
