The Mississippi Blues

This song is by Laura Smith.

I'm blue, you'd be too
If your home was washed away
Mine's gone so long
I'm weeping every day
So sad, too bad
Lost everything I had
That's why I sigh and sometimes I cry
I get so raving mad

Water, water, more than I've ever seen
The water is still rising from Memphis down to New Orleans
I feel so bad, I don't know what I'll ever do
And as long as I live, I'll have the Mississippi River blues

Now it'swater, water, more than I've ever seen
Yes, the water is still rising from Memphis down to New Orleans
I feel so bad, I don't know what I'll ever do
And as long as I live, I'll have the Mississippi River blues

Recorded:

1927
