I Can’t Get Mississippi Off My Mind

   

Song lyrics to I Can’t Get Mississippi Off My Mind (1931) Music by Harry Akst

Trouble on my hands
Knew I did wrong
Seeking other lands where I don’t belong
No matter where I go
This heart just seems to know
I can’t get Mississippi off my mind

Tired are these eyes
Long since they’ve seen
Purple tended skies and patches of green
No matter where I go
This heart just seems to know
I can’t get Mississippi off my mind

As a tot I got a lot of happiness
Pointing at a passing train
Never dreamt that all it meant was loneliness
And don’t those tears I can’t explain
Weary all the day, no peace or rest
Traveling far away from those I love best
No matter where I go
This heart just seems to know
I can’t get Mississippi off my mind
