​No Mississippi

This song is by Andy Griggs and appears on the album This I Gotta See (2004).

I still see tailights in the dark
I still smell your perfume in the air
This is where a fool would fall apart
But I ain't going there

Won't go down in a burst of flames
Won't stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it ain't strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall
But I won't beg and I won't crawl
A tear or two might fall into my shot of whiskey
But I won't cry no Mississippi

There's nowhere to hide in this small town
I know our paths are bound to cross
I might stand on shaky ground
When I see what I lost but I

Won't go down in a burst of flames
Won't stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it ain't strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall
But I won't beg and I won;t crawl
A tear or two might fall into my shot of whiskey
But I won't cry no Mississippi

Well I Hate to rain on your parade
I Hate to make your bubble bust
It'll take more tears than you could make
To turn my heart into rust

Won't go down in a burst of flames
Won't stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it ain't strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall
But I won't beg and I won't crawl
A tear or two might fall into my
I won't cry no Mississippi
