DOWN IN MISSISSIPPI
  JB Lenoir "Vietnam Blues"(Evidence ECD 26068-2)

As far back as I can remember
I either had to plow or hoe
[With] One of those long, old nine foot [cotton] sacks
Staring down the old dirt road
Down in Mississippi

  Down in Mississippi
  Down in Mississippi where I was born
  Down in Mississippi where I come from

Nothing I got against Mississippi
It also was the home of my wife
But I feel just like I'm a lucky man
To get away with my life
Down in Mississippi

  Down in Mississippi
  Down in Mississippi where I was born
  Down in Mississippi where I come from

They had a huntin' season on the rabbits
shoot one, you went to jail
The seaon was always open on me
Didn't nobody need no bail
Down in Mississippi

Down in Mississippi
Down in Mississippi where I was born
Down in Mississippi where I come from
