Mississippi Is...

Mississippi Is…

William Faulkner’s Sanctuary

Eudora Welty’s home state

Elvis Presley’s birthplace

The bulk of the Natchez Trace;

Sprawling beaches

Along the Gulf Coast shore

One blues man’s Crossroads

And inspiration for more

Warm front porch welcomes

With a wide-open door

An abundance of history

Tradition and folklore

With Ruins of Windsor

Vicksburg Battlefield

And Pharr Mounds to explore

She’s a ride down the Mighty River

On the American Queen

And some of the most beautiful countryside

That you’ve ever seen

She’s music and melodies

And the mockingbird’s songs,

By valor and arms

And faith ever strong;

She’s magnolias blooming

Around Jackson’s capitol dome

And the sweet scent of honeysuckle

That forever says “home”

Since December 10, 1817

Our 20th state

“Go Mississippi”

The Hospitality State

Roll on Mississippi

You’re a true State of Grace
