Floating Down River

I went up to Vicksburg town to see my girl with eyes of green

I changed my life and saw the light just like she asked of me

Oh my darling I pledge my love to thee

Everything was going just fine till I fell down the stream

Bound and tangeled on the dregs at the bottom of the river floor

Am I on my way? Well I don´t even know lord, if you’d let me in

You got a little mississippi on you, you got a little mississippi on your chin

I got a little mississippi on you, I got a little mississippi on you

I saw my life shine before my eyes and it was wicked

I could not see, I let a snake enter in my home lord

It waits to measure me

You got a little mississippi on you, you got a little mississippi on your chin

I got a little mississippi on you, I got a little mississippi on your chin

I never made it back to Vicksburg no, to see those eyes of green

My vice has taken its toll, a frail old man is what’s left of me

You got a little mississippi on you, you got a little mississippi on your chin

I got a little mississippi on you, I got a little mississippi on your chin
