Mississippi Is...

Mississippi Is…

I was born in Mississippi,

and was Mississippi bred.

I was schooled in Mississippi,

and in Mississippi, I was wed.

I was saved in Mississippi,

by God’s amazing grace,

and I’ve never thought of living,

in any other place.

By my Mississippi family,

I have always been so blessed.

Friends and neighbors too, are kind and helpful,

they’re what’s called, THE VERY BEST!

Storms do sometimes come this way,

knocking all our power out.

Central Electric is soon here restoring,

that they’ll come is never any doubt.

Many times we’ve left here,

to take vacations or a trip,

but the best part of our going,

was getting back to good ole Missi-‘Sip.

By now, you must know how I feel,

about Mississippi, which to me has been loyal.

And when I move from Mississippi to heaven,

I’ll be buried in rich Mississippi soil.


by Doris Evans, a resident of Lena and a member of Central Electric
