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

    Where the Mississippi rolls down to the sea
    And lovers found the place they'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 in Greenville again
    Mississippi
    You'll be on my mind
    Every time I hear this song
    Mississippi roll along
    Until the end of time

    Now the country song forever lost its soul
    When the guitar player turned to rock 'n' roll
    And every time when summer nights are fallin'
    I will always be callin', dreams of yesterday

    Mississippi
    I'll remember you
    Whenever I should go away
    I'll be longing for the day
    That I will be in Greenville again
    Mississippi
    You'll be on my mind
    Every time I hear this song
    Mississippi roll along
    Until the end of time
    Every time I hear this song
    Mississippi roll along
    Until the end of time Writer/s: Werner Theunissen
