It keeps raining down the tear stained faces of this lonely town
And I drowned.
And I keep reaching for one good reason why you said goodbye and turned around
Oh your leaving me in this empty state
And all I see are dark clouds as you drive away

Mississippi's crying baby
Mississippi's sad
I think we just figured out that you ain't coming back
The sky can see you leaving and it can't hold back the tears.
Oh it's pouring down and my heart thinks it's dieing
Mississippi's crying
Mississippi's crying

The night keeps looking for a headlight shinning in this driveway but they don't shine
And I keep thinking this crazy storm will drive you home but not this time
Oh my only wish is to change the weather
Are you coming back or is it gonna rain forever?

Mississippi's crying baby
Mississippi's sad
I think we just figured out that you ain't coming back
The sky can see you leaving and it can't hold back the tears.
Oh it's pouring down and my heart thinks it's dieing
Mississippi's crying
Mississippi's crying

Where you going baby, what's in Tennessee?
You never said a word about Memphis, so who is she?

It keeps raining down the tear stained faces of this lonely town
And I drowned.

Mississippi's crying baby
Mississippi's sad
I think we just figured out that you ain't coming back
The sky can see you leaving and it can't hold back the tears.
Mississippi, Mississippi,
Mississippi's crying
Mississippi's crying
Oh Mississippi's crying
Mississippi's crying (oh oh oh)
