Zz Top – My Head's In Mississippi lyrics

I'm shufflin' thru the Texas sand,
But my head's in Mississippi.
I'm shufflin' thru the Texas sand,
But my head's in Mississippi.
The blues has got a hold of me.
I believe I'm gettin' dizzy. (Spoken: Help me now.)

I keep thinkin' 'bout that night in Memphis,
Lord, I thought I was in Heaven.
I keep thinkin' 'bout that night in Memphis,
I thought I was in Heaven.
But I was stumblin' thru the parking lot
Of an invisible seven eleven. (Spoken: What was I doin out there?)


Last night I saw a cowgirl.
She was floatin' across the ceiling.
And last night I saw a naked cowgirl.
She was floatin' across the ceiling.
She was mumblin to some howlin' wolf
About some voodoo healin'. (Spoken: Mmm Baby.)


Where's my head baby?
Somewhere in Mississippi.

    Jesus just left chicago and he's bound for new orleans. In order to get there, he had to take hwy 61 (re: bob dylan song) which would take him right thru downtown memphis (imaginary 7-11) and along the west coast of mississippi. 7-11 stores are so-named because they were originally open from 7 am to 11 pm. Reverend billy was probably late stepping off of the (waiting for the) bus on that trip and decided that he had to devise a back-story like mr lucas did for star wars. I would have done the same. Two tokes and I am hunting a grape slurpee.
    The ref to the naked cowgirl and howling wolf. Let your imagination run wild, children. B f g would like dat!
