lyrics

Muddy Mississippi take me home
To the place my love waits alone
2300 hundred miles long
Muddy big river take me home

Back in 61 I left my home
On the big river the Natchez roamed
I left my darling standing there
A pretty white rose was in her hair

These bloody four years that I have known
Brave men I’ve seen come and go
Now as I lay here the soldier unknown
I want big river to take me home
Where the Natchez roamed
You gotta take me home
To my pretty white rose
Carry me home
Oh won’t you carry me home

Muddy Mississippi take me home
To the place my love waits alone
2300 hundred miles long
Muddy big river take me home
To my pretty white rose
Muddy Mississippi take me home
To the place my love waits alone
2300 hundred miles long
Muddy big river take me home

Muddy big river
Take me home
(Harmony) Muddy big river err err
Muddy big river
Take me home
To my pretty white rose
