Mississippi River Blues
Recorded by Hank Snow
written by Jimmie Rodgers

Oh you Mississippi river with waters so deep and wide
G7 C
My thoughts of you keep rising just like an evening tide
I'm just like a seagull that's left the sea
G7 C
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
G7 C
Floating over muddy waters drifting through familiar scenes
And when I hear that whistle of an old steam boat
G7 C
Down that Mississippi river again I'm a going to float

Repeat #2
