​Mississippi River

This song is by Wild Belle and appears on the album Dreamland (2016).

Marry me by the Mississippi River, baby
Take the train to New Orleans
Tell me that I'm yours forever

Marry me by the Mississippi River, baby
Take the train to New Orleans
Tell me that I'm yours forever

Soldier, fightin' to the end
I'll never be alone again
His love is endless
As mighty as a weapon

Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o

Carry me to Frenchmen Street
Then kiss me in a cemetery
Ebony keys, and ivory
By the white gate serenade me

Till the water starts rising
And the levee overflows
Sinners and saints gonna leave this place
But together we'll fight the storm

Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o

My days of darkness
The easy days are gone
Washed away
I need shelter in your arms

My dreams are drownin'
Along with this old town
Paradise is fallin'
How do we get back home?

Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
