Doyle Lawson – Mississippi River Let You Water Flow lyrics

It's been a long time 'comin
But I'm finally on my way
14 years at Edyville's a might price to pay
Once your week away from home's turned into all these years
One regret, One broken heart was taunted into tears.

Mississippi River let your waters flow
Carry me down to the Gulf of Mexico
Louisiana 'bihue in the mornin' sun
Smell the sweet Magnolia
When the day is done.

Oh rivers when I look at you
I think of time I've lost
Sittin' in a dirty cell I've had to pay the cost
For a life of crime I chose a prize I can not win
When I get to Louisiana I'll never leave again.

Mississippi River let your waters flow
Carry me down to the Gulf of Mexico
Louisiana 'bihue in the mornin' sun
Smell the sweet Magnolia
When the day is done.

Mississippi River let your waters flow
Carry me down to the Gulf of Mexico
Louisiana 'bihue in the mornin' sun
Smell the sweet Magnolia
When the day is done.

Louisiana 'bihue in the mornin' sun
Smell the sweet Magnolia
When the day is done.
