Run Mississippi (Rhonda Vincent)
Run, Mississippi River
Roll, down to the sea
Run, Mississippi River
Mississippi River you’re a part of me

Ol’ man river whirlin’ and a’ windin’
Makin’ its way down to New Orleans
Riverboat engine gruntin’ and a’ grindin’
Prettiest sight I’ve ever seen

Run, Mississippi River
Roll, down to the sea
Run, Mississippi River
Mississippi River you’re a part of me

Sittin’ on the bank, feet stuck in the water,
Jabberin’ with Huck, “What ‘cha wanna be?”
You be the pirate, I'll be the pilot,
Mississippi River is callin’ me

Run, Mississippi River
Roll, down to the sea
Run, Mississippi River
Mississippi River you’re a part of me


Climbin’ on a raft feels just like a steamboat,
Shove from the land and make for the sea,
Spyin’ Jackson's Island out in the distance
Mississippi River, you’re a part of me.

Run, Mississippi River
Roll, down to the sea
Run, Mississippi River
Mississippi River you’re a part of me

Nothin’ like steamin’ on your brown water,
Up from N'awlins, on to Saint Lou,
Sunlight or moonlight, markin’ twain felt right,
Mississippi River, it was always you.

Run… Mississippi River,
Roll… down to the sea
Run… Mississippi River
Mississippi River you’re a part of me
Run, Mississippi River
Roll, down to the sea
Run, Mississippi River
Mississippi River you will always be.
