Josh Kelley – Mississippi River Girl lyrics

She would sit alone by the bank
Always coming home so late
She'd take off all her clothes and jump in
I'd be giving up man if she'd be giving in
Baby let me dry your hair
I got some clothes that you can wear
Over there on the bed
And I'd always forgive her, but the
River never did

She'd sit out on the dock and put her feet in
She was skipping rocks and she was skipping
School again
She stole my only cigarettes, she smoked the
Whole pack one by one, light em up and
Put em to her lips
And I'd always forgive her but the Mississippi
River never did

She was always running away
No matter how hard I tried, she would
Never stay, and I wish that she would run
To me
Like the Mississippi river, is running
Towards the sea,
And now my poor heart is on the mend,
And I'll always be with her, because the
Mississippi river never ends
I'll always be with her because the Mississippi river never ends
