My Mississippi

This song is by Jeff Bates and appears on the album Rainbow Man (2003).

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 ariound 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

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

So I packed my delta dream
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 I have you with me
I know I'm gonna be strong enough
'Cause I've got your mud in my blood

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

My Mississippi
