Lyrics to My Mississippi
Hey there Mississippi
Looks like the waters getting rough
I picked a hell of a day for fishing
The way the wind keeps picking up

I know I look crazy on this muddy bank
But it's the only place I thought I wouldn't think

Hey there, Mississippi
I know a girl a lot like you
I bet she's tearing right through the country
And there's nothing I can do to slow her down
Yeah, love's like a river
You can't stop it when it's running out
And headed south

Like my Mississippi, yeah, oh-oh
My Mississippi, yeah, oh-oh

I know all about the ones that get away
If I know anything
So it's no surprise I didn't catch the only
Bite I had all day

Well, I wonder if my luck will ever change
Is the chance of her coming back
Anything like the chance of rain?

Hey there, Mississippi
I know a girl a lot like you
I bet she's tearing right through the country
And there's nothing I can do to slow her down
Yeah, love's like a river
You can't stop it when it's running out
And headed south

Like my Mississippi, yeah, oh-oh
My Mississippi, yeah, oh-oh

Hey there, Mississippi
I know a girl a lot like you
I bet she's tearing right through the country
And there's nothing I can do to slow her down
Turn her around, love's like a river
You can't stop it when it's running out
And headed south

Like my Mississippi, yeah, oh-oh
My Mississippi, yeah, oh-oh
Said my Mississippi, oh-oh
She's my Mississippi, oh-oh
