Wild Belle – Mississippi River lyrics
[Verse 1] x2
Marry me by the Mississippi River, baby
Take the train to New Orleans
Tell me that I'm yours forever

[Verse 2]
Soldier, fightin' to the end
I'll never be alone again
His love is endless
As mighty as a weapon

[Chorus]
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o

[Verse 3]
Carry me to Frenchmen Street
Then kiss me in the cemetery
Ebony keys, and ivory
By the white gate serenade me

[Verse 4]
Til the water starts rising
And the levee overflows
Sinners and saints gonna leave this place
But together we'll fight the storm

[Chorus]
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o

[Bridge]
My days of darkness, the easy days are gone
Washed away, I need shelter in your arms
My dreams are drownin' along with this old town
Paradise is fallin', how do we get back home?

[Chorus]
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go-o-o
