[Verse 1]
        C               C7                F        G
With friends around and even pals that I know are true
G                   G7          C
Still I'm lonely, homesick and blue
 C                      C7                F
There's no one who can cheer me when I'm all alone
G               G7          C
Longing for my Mississippi home

[Chorus]
C                C7    C             C7     G 
Way down in the delta on that Mississippi shore
G              G7                       C
In that muddy water, I long to be once more
C                   C7          C                    Am
When night shadows creep about and the whippoorwill callS
D                 D7            D                 G
You can hear old mammy shout, "Come in here, you all"

C                C7       C              C7        G
Way down on the levee, strolling in the pale moon light
G                   G7                 G               C+
You can see those steamboats and the fields of snowy white
          F                               C
That's a feeling I can't lose that muddy water in my shoes
G                  G7                C
When I get those Mississippi Delta blues

[Verse 2]
 C                   C7                  F       G
I long to hear them talk and sing those old melodies
G             G7            C
Swanee River and Ol' Black Joe
C                     C7              F
That sweet magnolia perfume floating on the breeze
G                  G7             C
Way down south is where I long to go

[Chorus]
C                C7    C             C7     G 
Way down in the delta on that Mississippi shore
G              G7                       C
In that muddy water, I long to be once more
C                   C7          C                    Am
When night shadows creep about and the whippoorwill callS
D                 D7            D                 G
You can hear old mammy shout, "Come in here, you all"

C                C7       C              C7        G
Way down on the levee, strolling in the pale moon light
G                   G7                 G               C+
You can see those steamboats and the fields of snowy white
          F                               C
That's a feeling I can't lose that muddy water in my shoes
G                  G7                C
When I get those Mississippi Delta blues
