Lyrics

it’s a long way down the Mississippi
though it’s so close to my heart
where the ocean is waiting like a mother
to take you in her arms

she’ll take you in her arms and rock you back and forth
quiet you, and soon you’ll feel fine
the rain up from the north makes its way down to the south
where you will drown

in the rail-yards, empty as a strip mine
only ghost trains pass through
while the ocean is waiting like a lover
one who never will abandon you

she’ll take you in her arms and rock you back and forth
quiet you, and soon you’ll feel fine
the rain up from the north makes its way down to the south
where you will drown

she’ll take you in her arms and rock you back and forth
take you in her arms where you will drown, where you will drown

it’s a long way down the Mississippi though it’s easy to find
just follow the winding of the river slipping on through the countryside

she’ll take you in her arms and rock you back and forth
quiet you, and soon you’ll feel fine
the rain up from the north makes its way down to the south
where you will drown

where you will drown
where you will drown
where you will drown
