OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Mamma and daddy raisin' cotton and kids
Where the Mississippi River rolls

Men star right, it's once around tonight
Allemande left and weave you know
Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Swing your maid around and promenade
Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Oh, I miss my Mississippi home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Those heads pass thru, partner trade and go
Reverse the flutter, move it round you know
Sweep 1/4, pass thru, do the right & left thru
Turn the girl and then slide thru, square thru
Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Trade by, swing that corner lady, promenade
Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Oh, I miss my Mississippi home


TAG

Allemande your corner, come back, swing the partner
Oh, I miss my Mississippi home

Missin' Mississippi
 
 

Momma and Daddy raisin' cotton and kids
Where the Mississippi River rolls
Planting my dreams in that black Delta dirt
Coughing out another tomorrow

A sharecropper shack in that hot cotton patch
Was home sweet home to me
And I wouldn't take a mansion in trade
For my Mississippi memories

Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Miss that misty Delta dawn
Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Oh, I miss my Mississippi home

Now the kids have grown up and Momma's passed on
And Daddy's age is starting to show
And things have changed, there's a big 4-lane
Where that Delta cotton used to grow

But time hasn't touched my daddy's love
For his hard working sharecropper wife
Cause I've overheard his soft tender words
When he talks to her picture at night

Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Miss that misty Delta dawn
Oh, I'm missin' Mississippi
Oh, I miss my Mississippi home

Oh, I miss my Mississippi home

Lyrics by Bill Shore, Blake Mevis and Byron Gallimore.
Recorded by Charley Pride.
