lyrics

They live by the river
hands at the water
ocean is their blood
they sleep in the darkness
dank and discarded
they’ll wash their hands of your love

Oh boys come by
steal a bottle
each love holds me nearer
as we sink into a fever
he’ll hold my hand as I slip away
oh Mississippi, say goodbye to Mississippi boys

Oh boys come by
steal a bottle
each love holds me nearer
as we sink into a fever
he’ll hold my hand as I slip away

Their language is strong and exotic
river rides free
eyes glint in the high moon
we dance like royalty
the war wages on

Oh Jackson and Black River
Pascola, Carol, Yazoo, Granada, Ohio

Oh boys come by
steal a bottle
each love holds me nearer
as we sink into a fever
he’ll hold my hand as I slip away
oh Mississippi, say goodbye to Mississippi boys

She’s like an old love
directing you forward
away from the stale air
she’s magnificent wild and different
old Mississippi there’s nothing near

Oh she wants more
oh she wants more
oh she wants more
