Mississippi Girl
I’ve traveled to many states, but I now no longer wish to roam. ‘Cause always when I’d come back, Mississippi would say, “Welcome home!” Well, I was born way down, south Mississippi way. And I grew up eating gators and greens and a few other things I won’t say.

But I’m proud to say I’m a country girl, living in a country like this. If I had to leave it all today, there’s a whole lotta things I’d miss. A whole lotta things I’d miss.

While, Jerry Clower jokes around, Conway sings his heart out. And Elvis is still our ‘King’ and will be forever, no doubt. Climbing trees, swimming in the creek. Going rodeoing all the time. This great state of Mississippi — well, it’s yours, and it’s mine!

And I’m proud to say I’m a country girl, living in a country like this. If I had to leave it all today, there’s a whole lotta things I’d miss. A whole lotta things I’d miss.
