  • She’s got Mississippi Blood runnin’ through her veins
    Her mama was a looker from New Orleans
    Daddy worked hard with a gun in his boot
    Blow you away click bang boom boom
    Good ol’ dude said she broke his heart
    Threw it on the ground, stomped it hard
    But I wanna tell you a little song I know
    Before they be carvin’ my name in stone

    Oh oh
    She’s a dirty little thing, crazy as hell
    Oh oh
    She’s my rock-n’-roll queen,sweet southern belle
    Oh oh
    She’s a lipstick stain on a burned cigarette
    Oh oh

    Like an old blues song stuck in my head
    Mississippi mud and I’m sinking in
    Cut off jeans, tied t-shirt
    Drinkin’ from the bottle, rollin’ in the dirt
    Foot on the gas, El Camino
    “Ridin’ With the King” on the radio

    Oh oh
    She’s a dirty little thing, crazy as hell
    Oh oh
    She’s my rock-n’-roll queen, sweet southern belle
    Oh oh
    She’s a lipstick stain on a burned cigarette
    Oh oh

    Like an old blues song stuck in my head
    Mississippi mud and I’m sinking in
    She reads from the good book just to be bad
    Lyin’ in the hay, she likes to move fast
    An old blues song stuck in my head
    Work all day and go out again

    Oh oh
    She’s a dirty little thing, crazy as hell
    Oh oh
    She’s my rock-n’-roll queen, sweet southern belle
    Oh oh
    She’s a lipstick stain on a burned cigarette
    Oh oh

    Like an old blues song stuck in my head
    Mississippi mud and I’m sinking in Writer/s: GARY ROSSINGTON, JAREN JOHNSTON, JOHNNY VAN ZANT, RICKEY MEDLOCKE
