Mississippi, You're On My Mind chords
Jesse Winchester

Capo I

D

          D      G            D
I think I see, a wagon rutted road
                                        A      D
With the weeds growing tall between the tracks
                           G                 D
And along one side, runs a rusty barbed wire fence
                        A             D
And beyond that sits an old tar paper shack

     G
Mississippi you're on my mind
     D
Mississippi you're on my mind
D A      G                   D
Oh, Mississippi you're on my mind

          D       G              D
I think I hear, a noisy old John Deere
                                     A    D
In a field specked with dirty cotton lint
                            G            D
And below the field, runs a little shady creek
                          A                    D
And there you'll find the cool green leaves of mint

     G
Mississippi you're on my mind
     D
Mississippi you're on my mind
D A      G                   D
Oh, Mississippi you're on my mind

          D          G           D
I think I smell, the honeysuckle vine
                                    A    D
The heavy sweetness like to make me sick
                              G              D
And the dogs, my God, they're hungry all the time
                            A                   D
And the snakes are sleeping where the weeds are thick

     G
Mississippi you're on my mind
     D
Mississippi you're on my mind
D A      G                   D
Oh, Mississippi you're on my mind

          D        G          D
I think I feel, an angry oven heat
                                    A   D
The southern sun just blazes in the sky
                          G               D                  
In the dusty weeds an old fat grasshopper jumps
                          A              D
I want to make it to that creek before I fry

     G
Mississippi you're on my mind
     D
Mississippi you're on my mind
D A      G                   D
Oh, Mississippi you're on my mind

     G
Mississippi you're on my mind
     D
Mississippi you're on my mind
D A      G                   D
Oh, Mississippi you're on my mind

The second A in the last line of the chorus should be a B. Also, Jesse recorded it in Eb.

Thank you ...yes, you are 100% correct. I should have indicated that this tab was from a "live" version. I've since changed it to the recorded version...I want to thank you again for the heads up..
