Lyrics

Goodbye Mississippi, Goodbye Louis.

Goodbye Mississippi won't you tell me please.

Say goodbye. Goodbye.

The people have killed you, you don't even know why.

 

Goodbye Santa Clause, Goodbye Marie.

Goodbye Santa Clause it's so sad to see.

Say goodbye Goodbye.

The people have wronged you, you don't even know why.

 

I went down the Mississippi

I went down the Mississippi Goodbye.

Goodbye.

On a steamboat called the Delta Queen.

 

Goodbye Delta gambler, goodbye Joe.

Goodbye Delta gambler, took all my dough.

Goodbye. Goodbye.

Gotta get off at the next stop, can't afford to ride no mo'.

 

Goodbye Delta singer sing the blues so fine.

She's a hellava lover, kisses taste like wine.

Goodbye. Goodbye.

No, I can't forget her, I think about her all the time.

 

Drift on mighty Mississippi.

Drift on mighty Mississippi Drift on.

Drift on.

You gotta drift on when you ain't got no home.

 

So goodbye Mississippi, hello New Orleans.

Goodbye Mississippi, hello New Orleans.

Goodbye. Hello.

Ain't nothin I own but this ol' pair of blue jeans.

 

Goodbye Mississippi, goodbye Louis.

Goodbye Mississippi, won't you tell me please.

Say goodbye. Goodbye.

The people have killed you, you don't even know why.
