Central Time

C      F

The Missouri is my right arm, the Ohio is my left

C      F

But I’m livin’ on the Mississippi River where I like life the best

F

I don’t mind the west coast, and I don’t mind the east coast

C      F

Oh, baby but I ain’t gonna live on no coast


G      F

I’m just a plain ole Midwestern boy

Some people say that the Mississippi River is the backbone of the nation

They can say whatever they want, I won’t disagree with that statement

I see people workin’ hard as ever, just wondering what I can do to make their lives better


F      C

Well, I won’t worry if the world don’t like me, I won’t let ‘em waste my time

F      G      F

‘Cause there ain’t nothin’ goin’ to change my mind, I’m feelin’ fine
