This song is by George "Harmonica" Smith and appears on the split album The Complete Blue Horizon Sessions (2006) by ​George Smith and ​Bacon Fat.

Leaving Chicago, Lord I beleieve I'll go back home
Leaving Chicago, Lord I beleieve I'll go back home
Well I'm going back to Mississippi, down ??? the child's home

Mississippi River, Lord so long and deep and wide
Mississippi River, Lord Lord, so long and deep and wide
I've gotta find my baby
Lord she's on the outside

Working behind the plough, Lord waitin' for my pay
Well, I'm working behind the plough, Lord waitin' for my pay
Well, Mr. Charlie, Mr. Charlie don't pay me very much
But makes sure everything comes my way

Lord I've got to go
Lord I've got to go
The woman I love in Mississippi
People tell me she done moved

Lord I wonder, Lord I wonder why I love the loves
Yeah I wonder, Lord Lord I just love the blues
I'm back in Mississippi, why this guy turned so blue
