Mississippi Queen lyrics

Album: CLIMBING!

composers: West, Laing, Pappalardi

Mississippi Queen, you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen, she taught me everything
Way down around Vicksburg, around Louisiana way
Lived a Cajun lady, called the Mississippi Queen
You know she was a dancer, she moved better on wine
While the rest of them dudes was gettin’ their kicks
Go an’ get your partner now I’m gettin’ mine

Mississippi Queen, if you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen, she taught me everything
This lady she asked me, if I would be her man
You know that I told her, I'd do what I can
To keep her lookin’ pretty, buy her dresses that shine
While the of rest of them dudes was makin’ their bread
Go an’ get your partner now I’m losin’ mine

----- Guitar Lead -----

You know she was a dancer, she moved better on wine
While the rest of them dudes was gettin’ their kicks
Go an’ get your partner now I’m gettin’ mine
Ohhhhh Mississippi Queen
