Frank in the swamps Lyr Req: Tishomingo Blues (20) RE: Tishomingo Blue lyric? 07 Feb 98

I'm goin' to Tishomingo

because I'm sad today

I wish to linger

'way down old Dixie way.

Oh my weary heart cries out in pain, oh

how I wish that I was back again,

In a place,

With a race,

Where they make you welcome all the time.

Way down in Missisippi

among the Cyprus trees,

They get you dippy

with their strange melodies..

to resist temptation,

I just can't refuse,

In Tishomingo,

I wish to linger,

where they play the weary blues.

Words & Music by Spencer Williams.

If there are more verses I'd love to hear them, My Pals and I have jammed to this tune once in a while, I don't know much about it, but I've seen Spencer Williams' name before, don't know much about him either.
