  • Sometimes I get lonely,
    And that's a hard thing to say
    Till I wound up in the wrong side
    Of Mississippi
    A little more then the get away
    Don't talk to yourself
    Cause after a while you might find

    Cause if it feels that flat lands
    Might make you have to lose your mind
    Feel the heat and the cold
    Cut the air with a knife
    Your just passing through winter
    You never been there
    Your whole life

    So don't you know
    We'll get through it baby

    I just don't see how
    You know it really no no faces of every little face in town

    The sun is sinking down on the delta
    Seven miles is the only sound that lights our way
    I hope someone is there to care about me
    I'm gonna tear this whole place down
    And I'll be on my way

    I'll be on my way
    Yeah
    All right

    C'mon Mississippi yeah
    Don't point your finger at me
    Just put me on the straight and narrow
    Just as far as my eyes can see

    The sun is sinking down on the delta
    Seven miles is the only sound that lights our way
    I hope someone is there to care about me
    I'm gonna tear this whole place down
    And I'll be on my way Writer/s: Taylor Reuben Hicks, Wynn Allen Christian
