MARTY BALIN lyrics - Camellia

MARTY BALIN
"Camellia"

Opening night, nothing new atlanta
Into the spotlight, one more time
Just in time to play
To one man and an empty table
He was drinking down the pain
All he could say was this ladys name...

Oh camellia won't you take me away

After the show, when the room was empty
No, he wouldnt go
So I asked him why he called her name
It seems she was some magic one night
With something for his pain
But all she left was a pretty name...

Oh camellia won't you take me away
To paradise tropical moon
Dont you leave me sitting here in atlanta
