Louisiana Woman Mississippi Man Lyrics

by Conway Twitty

Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart

See the alligators all a waitin' nearby
Sooner or later they know I'm gonna try
When she waves from the bank don't you know I know
It's goodbye fishin' line, see you while ago
With a Louisiana woman waitin' on the other side
The Mississippi River don't look so wide

Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart

Well, I thought I'd been loved but I never had
Till I was wrapped in the arms of a Mississippi man
When he holds me close it feels almost
Like another hurricane just ripped the coast
If he can't come to me I'm gonna go to him
That Mississippi River Lord I'm gonna swim

Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart

Well, Mississippi River, Lord, it's one mile wide
And I'm gotta get me to the other side
Mississippi man, I'm losin' my mind
Gotta have your lovin' one more time
I'm gonna jump in the river and here I go
Too bad alligator you swim too slow

Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart

There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
