Muddy Water (A Mississippi Moan)

(Peter DeRos /Harry Richman / Jo Trent) 1926


Muddy water in the street
Muddy water in my feet
Just Gods own shelter
Down on the delta

Muddy water in my shoes
Rockin' to those low down blues
They live in ease and comfort down there
I declare

Been away a year today
To wander and roam
Well, I don't care it's muddy there
But still it's my home

I've got my toes turned Dixie way
In that delta let me play
My heart cries out for muddy water

Dixie moonlight, Swanee shore
Headin' homebound just once more
To my Mississippi delta home

Southland has a garden spot
And if you believe or not
I hear those breezes a-whispering
"Come on back to me"

I've got my toes turned Dixie way
In that delta let me play
My heart cries out for muddy water
Muddy water
Muddy water
Muddy water calling
