Can't Take The Mud Out Of The Mississippi

CAN’T TAKE THE MUD OUT OF THE MISSISSIPPI

 

A smile on his face, a shine on his shoes

Where’s my honey goin’, goin’ to                                     

Weekend rolls around and I should know                           

Even if he’s late, he’s gonna come home

 

Can’t take the mud out of the Mississippi

Can’t take the bend out of the road

Can’t take the playin’ out of my man                            

Can’t take the lovin’ him out of my bones                                 

Hangin’ with the band down at the blues bar

You can hear the soul comin’ from his guitar

Another pretty woman sittin’ in the front row

Givin’ him the eye, yeah, I should know

 

Can’t take the mud out of the Mississippi

Can’t take the bend out of the road

Can’t take the playin’ out of my man

Can’t take the lovin’ him out of my bones, out of my bones

 

One of these nights he’ll sneak in the back door 

And be surprised to find that there’s no more

Me waitin’ for him keepin’ the bed warm

A goodbye note, on the pillow 

 

Can’t take the mud out of the Mississippi

Can’t take the bend out of the road

Can’t take the playin’ out of my man

Can’t take the lovin’ him, gotta take the lovin’ him out of my bones

 

He ain’t gonna change..yeah, I should know

Gotta move on, yeah, I gotta go
