I've been thinkin' about the river
And my years there on the other side
It's gotten me wishin' I hadn't come back home
'Cause the pieces just don't fall in line.

This town's a stranger and it's left me far behind.

Mississippi rain, you keep falling down
And the river gets wider each day
I'll be moving on, I can't stay around
And I can't go back to yesterday.

The river's much too wide
The river's much too wide.

I left home, started travelin'
I became a southern wind
And now no longer do I belong here
I can never be a part of it again.

This town's a stranger and it's left me far behind.

Mississippi rain, you keep falling down
And the river gets wider each day
I'll be moving on, I can't stay around
And I cannot go back to yesterday.

The river's much too wide
The river's much too wide.

Rain, you keep fallin'
Rain, you keep fallin'
Rain, you keep fallin'
The river's much too wide.
