MISTER AND MISSISSIPPI
Recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford
Writen by Irving Gordon

C                     Am       F            G
I can't recall my Mother, I don't remember Dad
C                  Am       F          G
Mister and Mississippi was all I ever had
Am                   C           G           F
Oh, I was born to wander, oh, I was born to roam
C                      Am       G           C
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home.

CHORUS
Am                   C           G           F
Oh, I was born to wander, oh, I was born to roam
C                     Am        G           C
And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home.

C                   Am        F             G
My cradle was the river, my school a river boat
C                   Am           F           G
My teacher was a gambler, the slickest one afloat
Am                   C           G            F
His teacher was a gambler, the slickest one afloat
C                      Am     G       C
He taught me not to gamble on a petticoat.

CHORUS
C                     Am           F         G
Oh! Betty Mae, I love you, I love you Betty Mae
C                     Am         F              G
I love you like a barefoot boy, loves a summer day
Am                     C                G      F
The way a wand'ring gypsy, loves the changing scenes
C                        Am          G           C
Just like the restless river, loves old New Orleans.

CHORUS
C                   Am             F       G
I'd love a tiny village, a quite country town
C                    Am           F              G
A house, a little garden, with kiddies runnin' 'round
Am                   C          G               F
I'd be a faithful husband, I'd be a trusting friend
C                        Am             G        C
Until I heard that steamboat, comin' 'round the bend. 

CHORUS

Lack of accuracy. Some of the chords are wrong, some of are just in the wrong place, overall its okay, but only because i found the errors.
