      About "My Mississippi"

      Lyrics for Jeff Bates - "My Mississippi"

      I traded a '57 Chevy for my first guitar
      And Daddy said I was crazy 'cause that was a helluva car
      When I played "Love Me Tender" on that Fender
      And the music came pourin' out of my hands and heart
      He knew it was worth it and so did I
      'Cause sometimes, some things don't have a price

      So, I learned to play all my heroes' songs
      And I finally got around to writin' a few of my own
      The songs got better, I put a band together
      And we played our first gig at a little club in McComb
      When I walked on stage and opened my mouth
      I started to sing and you came pouring out

      Oh, ooh Mississippi
      You know how hard it was for me to leave
      Oh, ooh Mississippi
      I miss you I hope you miss me
      My Mississippi

      So, I packed my Delta dreams and came to Music City
      Brought a whole lot of me, a little Presley and some Twitty
      I came here to make it but if I don't I can take it
      Just as long as I have you with me
      I know I'm gonna be strong enough
      'Cause I've got your mud in my blood

      Oh, ooh Mississippi
      You know how hard it was for me to leave
      Oh, ooh Mississippi
      I miss you I hope you miss me
      My Mississippi

      You know I have four first loves
      That car, this guitar and the girl that broke my heart
      And you

      Mississippi
      You know how hard it was for me to leave
      Oh, ooh Mississippi
      I miss you I hope you miss me

      (My Mississippi)
      My Mississippi
      My Mississippi
      (My Mississippi)
      My Mississippi
