Take Me Back To That Mississippi River Home
By John Hart

(Very fast banjo playing)

Well me and my buddies started out the other day
A studying a plan how to get away
The light come on and they caught us in the dark
Awaitin for the Chesterfield train to start

Conductor was standin right nigh the road
Then he hollered at the passengers ALL ABOARD
Then he reached up and he pulled the string
Bang bang bang went the banjo string

Take me back take me back
Take me back to that Mississippi River Home
Take me back take me back
Take me back to that Mississippi River Home

Banjo break

Well the train pulled on to the very next stop
I looked around about seventeen cops
Cross my he.. ought to see me run      ("cross my he" is obscured... heels maybe)
Bang bang bang went the Gatlin gun

Take me back take me back
Take me back to that Mississippi River Home

Banjo break

Take me back take me back
Take me back to that Mississippi River Home

Take me back take me back
Take me back to my Mississippi River Home
