Mississippi River Blues

Song Author Jimmie Rodgers Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Oh you Mississippi river with [F]waters so deep and [C]wide
My [G7]thoughts of you keep rising just like an evening [C]tide
I'm [F]just like a seagull that's left the [C]sea  
Oh your [G7]muddy waters keep on calling [C]me  

I'm gonna [F]pack my grip and head that way
You'll see me [C]hanging round again some day
Cause I know [G7]that's the only way to lose
The Mississippi river [C]blues

I've often ridden on your bosom from [F]Memphis down to New O[C]rleans
Floating [G7]over muddy waters drifting through familiar [C]scenes
And when I [F]hear that whistle of an old steam [C]boat
Down that [G7]Mississippi river again I'm a going to [C]float

I'm gonna [F]pack my grip and head that way
You'll see me [C]hanging round again some day
Cause I know [G7]that's the only way to lose
The Mississippi river [C]blues


Oh you Mississippi river with waters so deep and wide
My thoughts of you keep rising just like an evening tide
I'm just like a seagull that's left the sea
Oh your muddy waters keep on calling me

I'm gonna pack my grip and head that way
You'll see me hanging round again some day
Cause I know that's the only way to lose
The Mississippi river blues

I've often ridden on your bosom from Memphis down to New Orleans
Floating over muddy waters drifting through familiar scenes
And when I hear that whistle of an old steam boat
Down that Mississippi river again I'm a going to float

I'm gonna pack my grip and head that way
You'll see me hanging round again some day
Cause I know that's the only way to lose
The Mississippi river blues
