Intro Chords: Just jam out on that G chord

(Verse 1)
G
Old Mr. Deville, from up in Clarksdale, shot his brother with a pop pop pop
          C                                                                   G
spent twenty years of hard time, before he saw the light
               D                                          C                              G
now he's preaching on the corner of a Mississippi Saturday night.

G
Drive by the pawn shop bail bond motel, dream all you want you ain't going nowhere
      C                                                             G
the ladies at the juke joint, are looking for a fight 
                 D                                       C                              G
and they'll hunt you like a rabbit on a Mississippi Saturday night.


(Chorus)
C
Vicksburg, Natchez, down to Crescent City 
      G
the Gulf Coast blues oh it sure is a pity
         D
don't make a lot of money, baby thats alright
          G
cause we make a lot of loving on a Mississippi Saturday night.


(Verse 2)
G
Old Mr. Simon from Hushpuckena, he's having coffee with your maw maw and your paw paw
              C                                                                      G
if you're messing with his daughter you better treat her right
            D                                         C                              G

Vicksburg, Natchez, down to Crescent City 
      G
the Gulf Coast blues oh it sure is a pity
         D
don't make a lot of money, baby thats alright

(Verse 3)
G
Drive to the ballpark, out by the Wal-Mart, parked on the levee drinking forties in a Skylark
C                                                      G
people on the river are hoping for a bite
                        D                             C                              G
whole mess of catfish cooking on a Mississippi Saturday night.

G
Old Mr. Hayward, sings like a jaybird, more like a jailbird inside a FEMA trailer
        C                                                              D
your gonna need a pirogue, the waters getting high
                   D                                    C                              G
or you'll be sleeping in the river on a Mississippi Saturday night.


(Chorus)
C
Vicksburg, Natchez, down to Crescent City 
      G
the Gulf Coast blues oh it sure is a pity
         D
don't make a lot of money, baby thats alright
          G
cause we make a lot of loving on a Mississippi Saturday night.

C
Vicksburg, Natchez, down to Crescent City 
      G
the Gulf Coast blues oh it sure is a pity
         D
don't make a lot of money, baby thats alright
          G
cause we make a lot of loving on a Mississippi Saturday night.

Fucked up Blugrass ultra-fast picking haha. seriously tho, these guys are like 2 or 3 playing the guitar and 1 banjitar (guitjo) so everybody's doing a different thing on the strumming thus creating this different upstroke-downstroke pattern strumming, if know catch what I mean.
