Mississippi
Yeah

Then one day he turned into a preacher
I heard he got married had a daughter and a son
Well, I could have been me but I got cold feet
start to run in,
Hungry for some food
Dogs start a-twitching
And they're looking at you
It was light
By five
Torn all apart
All in the name
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

Somebody could have told us where they go
Crawling all around looking for foot, foot, footprints
Now tell me what
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

Somebody could have told us where they go
Crawling all around looking for foot, foot, footprints
Now tell me what
Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

Somebody could have told us where they go
Crawling all around looking for foot, foot, footprints
Now tell me what
to escape

City's just a jungle, more games to play
Trapped in the heart of it, trying to get away
I was raised in the country, I been workin' in the town
I
thing I did wrong
Stayed in Mississippi a day too long

Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast
I'm drownin' in the poison, got
where you are 
There's only one thing that I did wrong 
I stayed in Mississippi a day too long 

Well, my ship's been split to splinter - it's sinking
to escape

The city's just a jungle
More games to play
I'm trapped in the heart of it
Trying to get away

I was raised in the country
Been working in
Underneath your name where it's underlined 
I've been turned around 
I've been mystified by a true love 

And that ain't the hardest part 
Talkin' bout
where it's underlined

I've been turned around
I've been mystified by a true love
And that ain't the hardest part
Talkin' bout a true love
And that
Could it be you? 
I've been searching so hard to find 
Tell me how could I have been so blind 
You were here all the time 
(You were here all
to escape

The city's just a jungle
More games to play
I'm trapped in the heart of it
Trying to get away

I was raised in the country
Been working in
before, but something has changed, I used to be an open heart 
What have you done to me 

It could have been anyone, it could have been anyone 
It could
Could it be you?
I've been searching so hard to find
Tell me how could I have been so blind
You were here all the time
(You were here all the time)
believe he was real
So she said

Make it happen take me to Manhattan
If you like LA that's cool
Or you could slip me right on down the Mississippi
I'd
three
By then he'd been through the ringer
Made himself a name as a singer
Read about in all of the papers
How the boy got lost in the vapors

Ego
been loving you so long

Could you love a poor boy?
Could you, Dolly?
Could you love a poor boy?
If you come live with me
Dolly, I'd be so proud
(Chorus:)
Sometimes we are all we got, this time I have not forgot
Even a blind man can see, that it could be you,
it might be me
And sometimes
Looking back it's hard for me to see
Just how I could have been so blind
Like an actor on a movie screen
You played the part with every line
Well
She could be no good, I'm telling you
Gather round boys for a tale that is tragic and true
On the Mississippi riverboat, "Magnolia"
No one
thing I did wrong
Stayed in Mississippi a day too long.

Well, my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast.
I'm drowning in the poison,
bidda the forty-five dollar bill?

And from that boy that went to school there grew a man who played it cool,
He come back home a full fledged
Me and the bottle have always been friends
Oh, we've had a few ol' nasty fights but the bottle would always win
And when I go to answer that final
the bay 
"Hallelu, babbelu, I think it's he!" 

"Oh, Captain dear, where have you been. 
Have you been out sailin' on the Mediteren'. 
Have you any
