Oh Mississippi Lyrics

by Lissie

oh mighty river
the mississippi's
turbulent waters
lull me to sleep

please take my hand
i will go softly
your arms around me
you'll be my man

the leaves are changin'
i cross this road
to make my last walk
in that warm sunshine

oh mighty river
oh mississippi
oh all the troubles your banks have seen

carry their stories from north to south
but 'round these parts you're westward bound

the factories closin'
kids have grown so fast
lift up their woe please
as you flow past

oh witness river
you have seen it all
now do your waters
have room for one more

oh endless river
as you transcend
please take me with you
far from this land
