They say God
Walked in the garden
Between the Tigris
And Euphrates
They say God
Walked in the garden
Between the tigris
And Euphrates
But we all know that Eden
Is down
In the delta south of memphis

Eve and Adam ate the apple
Stood there naked in the sun
Eve and Adam ate the apple
Stood there naked in the sun
But when God
Came looking for them
Oh, they knew
What they had done

Jesus is Lord of picayune
And Mississippi welcomes you
Jesus is Lord of picayune
And Mississippi welcomes you
Just remember
When you're passing thru
Everything started
With the blues
There's a place
That they call witchdance
Where not one
Blade of grass will grow
There's a place
That they call witchdance
Where not one
Blade of grass will grow
Something awful bad
Went down there
Or so the story goes

You can read
All about it
On a sign
By the side of the road
You can read
All about it
On a sign
By the side of the road
But sometimes the way
Things happened
Ain't the way
The story's told

Jesus is Lord of picayune
And mississippi welcomes you
Jesus is Lord of picayune
And Mississippi welcomes you
Just remember
When you're passing thru
Everything started
With the blues
He broke his nehi bottle
And laid it cross the strings
He broke his nehi bottle
And laid it cross the strings
Then he took that sears
And roebuck silvertone
And really made
That guitar sing

That's all right mama
Any way you do
That's all right now mama
Any ole way you do
We all feel it too
Cause everything started
With the blues
