I ain't never seen the snowfall on the Delta
Like the one that's gonna cover all of New York tonight
But it sure do remind me of those miles and miles of cotton
Long ago but not forgotten, yeah, that's a southern man's field of white

Yeah, I turned my back and walked away
But lately I ain't seen a sunny day
Been thinking 'bout rolling on back home
Back where I belong

Chorus:
So won't you put me on that riverboat Queen
Let the side wheels spin
'Cause I ain't seen that muddy water town in I can't remember when
All these years they played a trick on me
No, I ain't the man I used to be
Tonight I feel like Mississippi

People 'round here, Lord they move in such a pace
I'm just another face, lost in the crowd
There's a sweet sound being sung down in Dixie
Now and again it gets me when I get to feeling down

Yeah, I turned my back and walked away
But lately I ain't seen a sunny day
Been thinking 'bout rolling on back home
Back where I belong

Repeat Chorus

All these years they played a trick on me
No, I ain't the man I used to be
Tonight I feel like Mississippi
Tonight I feel like Mississippi
