Roll On Mississippi
Recorded by Charley Pride
Written by Dennis W. Morgan and Rhonda Kye Fleming

C Am F C
Walking along whistling a song bare foot and fancy free
Am F C
A big riverboat passing us by she’s headed for New Orleans
G7 C
There she goes disappearing around the bend
G7 C
Roll on Mississippi you make me feel like a child again

A cool river breeze like peppermint leaves
The taste of it takes me back
Am F C
Chewing on a straw torn overalls I can’t hold an old straw hat
G7 C
Muddy river just like a long lost friend
G7 C
Roll on Mississippi you make me feel like a child again

Roll on Mississippi big river roll
Am C F G7
You’re the childhood dream that I grew upon
F G7 Am
Roll on Mississippi carry me home
F D7 G7
Now I can see I’ve been away too long
Roll on Mississippi roll on

Now when the world's spinning round too fast for me
And I need a place to dream
Am F C
So I come to your banks I sit in your shade relive the memories
G7 C
Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn
G7 C
Roll on Mississippi you make me feel like a child again

repeat #3
