I'm not sure of the species, but I would say it is a variety of Senna.

How about senna pendula or cassia bicapsularis?

I have it too... But I had to bring it in.

Weedy, but I'm interested in using it as a cover crop...

Or...
Maybe you have this apparently less weedy one:

Not saying it couldn't be, but neither of those is recorded as growing in Georgia.

Here are the ones that are known to grow in Georgia.
Senna corymbosa
Senna hebecarpa
Senna marilandica
Senna obtusifolia
Senna occidentalis
It's not S. hebecarpa or S. obtusifolia. Looking at photos online the three remaining seem to have distinctive seed pods. So if @Britbolt could post photos of the pods once they fully develop it might help give a positive ID.

Hmmm... Maybe not "Senna surattensis"

Was once told golden showers for the name... and really not having much luck totally pinning it down to a botanical name.

If it is then it would have to be planted intentionally since that one is only recorded growing wild in thesouthern tip of Florida.

Ok... I take it back... I shoulda looked more closely at the plants that you listed...

Cassia corymbosa/Senna corymbosa “Flowery Senna” Looks like a match.
Texas Flowery Senna (Senna corymbosa)
