Lyrics

I SAW THE MISSISSIPPI SHEIKS ON THE CORNER OF THE STREET OR WAS IT JUST A DREAM? LIKE I’VE BEEN TRAVELING IN A TIME MACHINE SO COME ALONG WITH ME, BACK TO THE SOUTHERN STREETS I SAW OLD PEG LEG HOWELL HIS GANG WERE MAKING QUITE A SOUND I HEARD BO CARTER WAIL AND THE GIT-FIDDLE COMBO PLAY SO COME ALONG AND SEE THE MISSISSIPPI SHEIKS WHAT YOU GOT TO LOSE? CAN’T YOU HEAR ME CALLING, CALLING YOU? TELL ME WHY SHOULD YOU STALL? YOU’LL NEVER LIVE IT ALL TILL YOU’VE DONE THAT GEORGIA CRAWL WELL I HEAR YOU LITTLE GIRL YOU SAY YOU BEEN ALL AROUND THIS WORLD FROM MOSCOW TO ABILENE, BUT THERE’S ONE PLACE YOU’VE YET TO SEE SO COME ALONG AND SEE, THE MISSISSIPPI SHEIKS
