Mississippi John Hurt – Sliding Delta lyrics

The Sliding Delta run right by my door.
Sliding Delta run right by my door.

I'm going up the country, and baby don't you wanna go;
I'm going up the country, baby don't you wanna go.

I'm going up the country, I ain't coming back no more;
I'm going up the country, and I ain't coming back no
More;

The big Kate Allen, got ways just like a man.
It'll steal your baby everytime she lands.

I said, "The big Kate Allen, got ways just like a man;
Steal your baby everytime she lands. "

The Sliding Delta run right by my door.
Sliding Delta run right by my door.

My suitcase is packed, and my trunk's already gone.
I can't sleep baby when the world is waitin' on.

I said, I'm going up the country, don't you wanna go;
Going up the country, and I ain't coming back na more.
