From the recording Leavin' Mississippi

Lyrics

Four long days and four long nights, now – I been callin’ out your name, girl
I got to get things right between us – I hurt you bad and I know I’m to blame
 
Sometimes a man can be so hard-headed - Actin’ a fool as if it was planned
Lord, I didn’t mean to hurt you, baby – I’ll shout it from the witness stand
 
Then I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi
Yes, I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – With my baby, hand in hand
 
Then I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi
Yes, I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – With my baby, hand in hand
 
I remember that old story about Jonah – How he got swallowed up by that whale
He spent some time, Lord, rollin’ & tumblin’ – But his faith it did not fail him, no
 
I got faith that I’m gonna find you, baby – You know my heart is at your command
I’ll do whatever it takes, little darlin’ – to make sure the fires of love get fanned
 
Then I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi
Yes, I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – With my baby, hand in hand
 
Then I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi
Yes, I’ll be leavin’ Mississippi – With my baby, hand in hand
