Where you can hear a country song song from far
And someone plays the honky-tonk guitar
Where all the lights will go out one by one
The people join the sun
And the wind takes it away

Where the Mississippi falls down to the sea
And lovers found the place thhhey'd like to be
How many times before the song was ending
Love and understanding
Everywhere around

Mississippi, I'll remember you
Whenever I should go away
I'll be longing for the day
That I will be returning again
Mississippi, you'll be on my mind
Everytime I hear this song
Mississippi roll along
Until the end of time

Now the country song for ever lost it's soul
When the guitar player turned to rock & roll
And everytime when the summernights are falling
I will always be calling dreams of yesterday

    The lyrics are wrong in the 3rd verse, they should read as follows:_ That I will be in Greenville again, not, That I will be returning again, I know this song very well and knew this was incorrect.

    A romantic song of the past, nostalgic and sorrowful. The person remembers the "good old' days and imprints them on the mississippi as a metaphor on time and its persistence as a river flows along so do our lives yet something remains as long as the river continues to flow.

    When i listen country music i used to think of mississippi,tennesse and west virginia because famous country singers born and they mostly said
    about it in their songs. Mississippi i remember you far2 away from our beautiful mountainous areas,mizoram

    Mississipe para mim significa um momento muito lindo em minha vida, tempo da inocencia... Tudo era bom, tudo era maravilhoso... Se se faz musicas boas como esta... Linda demais. Tipo demusica que nos ficavamos apaixonadas, sem saber por que... Mas a paixao era garantida...
