Muddy Mississippi Line
Working on a barge down in New Orleans Spending all my money on Cajun queens Working from the morning till the end of day And that's when I go out to play Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line They pay me ten dollars and I don't save a dime But I always seem to make enough to see me through And I'll bet you five dollars, I'm as happy as you [Chorus] Working on the muddy Mississippi line Working on the muddy Mississippi line I've got a lot of friends down in New Orleans Working on the docks, loading coffee beans Hard working people who will lend you a hand They'll help you anyway they can My daddy was a Mississippi river man My mama was a Cajun from the heart of the land They taught me how to love the Mississippi mud Now there's Mississippi water flowing in my blood [Chorus] I love the Mississippi like it was my own As long as I remember, it's been my home I know it's kinda muddy but it sure looks fine When you're riding on the muddy Mississippi line [Chorus: x3]
