Mississippi Delta Blues 
Recorded by Bob Wills
Written by Jimmie Rodgers and Jack Neville

C G7
With friends around and even pals that I know are true
Still I'm lonely homesick and blue
G7 C G7
There's no one who can cheer me when I'm alone
D7 G7
Longing for my Mississippi home

C G7
Way down in the delta on that Mississippi shore
In that muddy water I long to be once more
E7 Am
When night shadows creep about and the whippoorwill call
D7 G7
You can hear old mammy shout come in here you all

C G7
Way down on the levee strolling in the pale moon light
You can see those steamboats and the fields of snowy white
F C A7
There's a feeling I can't lose that muddy water in my shoes
D7 G7 C
When I get that Mississippi Delta blues

I long to hear them talk and sing those old melodies
Swanee River and Ol' Black Joe
That sweet magnolia perfume floating on the breeze
D7 G7
Way down south is where I long to go

Repeat #2,3
