Intro: C  A7  D7  G  C

                   C     G7     C
(Yodel) The Mississippi River Blues

        C                        C7                G
Oh you Mississippi River, with waters so deep and wide,
      C                          G7                   C
My thoughts of you keep rising, just like an evening tide.
 F                                       C
I'm just like a seagull that's left the sea,
         G                  G7             C
Oh your muddy waters, they keep on callin' me

Bridge:
           F 
I'm gonna pack my grip and head that way,
                C
You'll see me hangin' 'round again someday.
              G
'Cos I know that's the only way to lose,
     G7                 C
The Mississippi River Blues.
                   C     G7     C
(Yodel) The Mississippi River Blues.

            C                           C7                   G
I've often ridden on your bosom, from Memphis down to New Orleans,
          C                    G7                      C
Dreaming over muddy waters, flowing through familiar scenes.
            F                                C
And when I hear the whistle of an old steam boat,
           G                   G7                 C
Down that Mississippi River, again I'm going to float.

Bridge:
           F 
I'm gonna pack my grip and head that way,
                C
You'll see me hangin' 'round again someday.
              G
'Cos I know that's the only way to lose,
     G7                 C
The Mississippi River Blues.
                   C     G7     C
(Yodel) The Mississippi River Blues.
