lyrics

Mighty Mississippi

Mighty Mississippi, roll my troubles away
Mighty Mississippi, roll my troubles away
You know I come from the North so I don’t know why
Your muddy water changes with clouds in the sky
Mighty Mississippi, roll my troubles away

Mississippi woman, sure like the way that you smile
Mississippi woman, sure like the way that you smile
I am a stranger ‘round here, but I like your style
I’ll forget where I’m going and stay here for awhile
Mississippi woman, sure like the way that you smile

All along the river, I can see where they stood
All along the river, I can see where they stood
You know the guns on the hill, they tell the tale of their strife
Those soldiers in grey (blue) I know they laid down their lives
All along the river, I can see where they stood

Mighty Mississippi, roll my troubles away…….
