Mighty Mississippi

And it’s away, Dixie, steady as you go

On your way down to the Gulf of Mexico

C      G

Oh! ol’ man river keeps on callin’ me

C      G      D

There ain’t no place on earth I’d rather be

G     B     C     A

Well it’s Greenville, Vicksburg and Natchez down the line

G     D     G

It’s fare-thee-well ol’ Memphis, Tennessee

C      G

Mighty Mississippi, roll along

C      G      D

Lazy river, sing your song

G     B     C     A

And it’s away, Dixie, steady as you go

G     D     G

On your way down to the Gulf of Mexico


Well, I used to ride aboard that River Queen

It was many a game of fortune I have seen

Oh, once I lost a million and I won it back again

On the way from Baton Rouge to New Orleans


Chorus
