With your lips so tender baby,and your eyes so bright.
Thought I'd write a letter, just to let you know,
Mississippi Woman, baby, that I love you so, child.

Got into some trouble, down in Mexico.
Robbed a man in San Juan, and I shot a guy called Joe.
Now I'm being hunted and the law is on my trail.
Next time I write you woman, I guess I'll be in jail.
Mississippi Woman, try to understand,
Please don't sit around and wait for this lonely man.

Caught me in Kentucky, the judge gave me a dime,
Bought a hacksaw from a trustee and I got away that time.
Right now, I'm in Florida, on my way to Tennessee.
Mississippi Woman, baby, save your love for me, child.

Mississippi Woman, with your long black hair,
Gee, I really miss you baby and I wish that you were here.
Oh, how you used to love me woman, every lonely night,
With your lips so tender baby,and your eyes so bright.
Thought I'd write a letter, just to let you know,
Mississippi Woman, baby, that I love you so, child.

Mississppi Woman...

Mississippi Woman!

Mississippi Woman...
