Knopfler, Mark - Mississippi Blues Lyrics




Goin' down to the delta
Where I can have my fun
Goin' down to the delta
Where I can have my fun
Where I can drink my white lightnin', gamble
I can bring my baby home

Don't the delta look lonesome
When that evening sun go down?
Don't this delta look lonesome
When that evenin' sun goes down
Well, you been lookin' for your baby
Don't know where she could be found

Goin' back to my use-to-be
Although that she have done me wrong
Goin' back to my use-to-be
Although that she have done me wrong
Well, I think I'll have to forgive her
'cause I'm tired o' driftin' through this world alone

She treats me dirty
But I love her just the same
Well, she treats me dirty
But I love her just the same
Well, it just breaks my heart to hear
Lord, some other men call her name

Now goodbye, I'm gon' leave you
An' I won't be back no more

Now goodbye, I'm gon' leave you
An' I won't be back no mo'
Man, my mind gets to ramblin'
See you in nineteen and forty-fo'

Knopfler, Mark Mississippi Blues Comments
  1. STRATMAN firdaus

    Great version of the classic. Such an important, powerful and historic blues tune.
    MK and Steve Phillips do it justice.

  2. kindblue59

    Wow, Ronnie Scott's is such a small and intimate venue. Whoever managed to see MK in such a venue was lucky indeed!

    Nice, you should have mentioned Mark Knopfler is in it, not everyone has heard of the The Notting Hillbillies, you'd get a lot more hits.

    Very cool all the same, thanks.
