lyrics

MISSISSIPPI

I FEEL SO BAD,
I COULD FILL THE MISSISSIPPI
FULL OF TEARS.
I FEEL SO BAD,
I COULD FILL THE MISSISSIPPI
FULL OF TEARS.
FOLKS DOWN IN ST. JAMES PARISH
WOULD SAY THEY AIN’T SEEN
NOTHIN’ LIKE IT IN YEARS.
 
SINCE THAT GIRL’S BEEN GONE,
I’VE BEEN OVERFLOWING MY BANKS.
SINCE THAT GIRL’S BEEN GONE,
I’VE BEEN OVERFLOWING MY BANKS.
IF SHE EVER COMES BACK HOME,
EVERYONE IN MEMPHIS
WOULD FALL DOWN ON THEIR KNEES
AND GIVE THANKS.
 
I’VE BEEN CRYIN’ SO LONG,
I FLOODED THE TOWN OF DELACROIX.
I’VE BEEN CRYIN’ SO LONG,
I FLOODED THE TOWN OF DELACROIX.
IF SHE’D JUST BE MY WOMAN,
ALL THOSE WEARY PEOPLE,
WOULD JUMP FOR JOY.
 
RAIN’S COMIN’ DOWN,
AND BEATS A RHYTHM OF MY ROOF.
THAT OLD RAIN’S COMIN’ DOWN,
AND BEATS A RHYTHM ON MY ROOF.
MY HEART IS DROWNIN’
IN A RAGING RIVER THAT’S 100 PROOF.
