Merle Haggard - Miss The Mississippi And You Lyrics




I'm growing tired of the big city lights
Tired of the glamor and tired of the sights
In all my dreams I am roaming once more
Back to my home on the old river shore.

I am sad and weary far away from home
Miss the Mississippi and you you
Days are dark and dreary everywhere I roam
Miss the Mississippi and you.

Rolling the wide world over
Always alone and blue so blue
Nothing seems to cheer me under heaven's dome
Miss the Mississippi and you.

Ou de le-ee ou de le-ee de ou le-ee ou de le-ee
Ou le-ee ou de le-ee ou de le-ee.

Memories are bringing happy days of your
Miss the mississippi and you you
Mockingbirds're singing round the cabin door
Miss the Mississippi and you.

Rolling the wide world over
Always alone and blue blue
Longing for my homeland muddy water shore
Miss the Mississippi and you.

Ou de le-ee ou de le-ee de ou le-ee ou de le-ee
Mississippi and you...

    I'm growing tired of the big cities' lights,
    tired of the glamour, and tired of the sights.
    In all my dreams I'm roaming once more,
    down to my home on the old river shore.
    I am sad and weary,
    far away from home,
    miss the mississippi and you, dear.
    Days are dark and dreary,
    everywhere I roam,
    miss the mississippi and you.
    Rolling the wide world over,
    always alone and blue, blue.
    Nothing seems to cheer me
    under heaven's dome,
    miss the mississippi, and you.
    (Yodel)
    Memories are bringing
    happy days of you're
    miss the mississippi and you.
    Mockingbirds are ringing around the cabin door
    miss the mississippi and you.
    Rolling the whole world over
    always alone and blue, so blue.
    Longing for my homeland
    muddy water shore,
    Miss the mississippi, and you.
