I still see tail lights in the dark
I smell your perfume in the air
This is where a fool might fall apart
But I ain't going there

I won't go down in a burst of flames
I won't stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it ain't strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall, but I wont beg and I wont crawl
A tear or two might fall into my shot of whiskey
But I wont cry, no Mississippi

There's no where to hide in this small town
I know our paths are bound to cross
And I might stand on shaky ground
When I see all I have lost

I won't go down in a burst of flames
I won't stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it ain't strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall, but I wont beg and I wont crawl
A tear or two might fall into my shot of whiskey
But I wont cry, no Mississippi

Well I hate to rain on your parade
I hate to make your bubble bust
It's going to take more tears
Than you can make to my heart turn into rust

I won't go down in a burst of flames
I won't stay locked up in your chains
Yeah, it hurts but it ain't strong enough to whip me
I might stagger, I might fall, but I wont beg and I wont crawl
A tear or two might fall into my shot of whiskey
But I wont cry, no Mississippi
I wont cry, no Mississippi, no
