Does anyone know a song that goes: Oh you Mississippi river, with waters so deep and wide,
My thoughts of you keep rising, just like an evening tide....

I think it was a Jimmy Rodgers song, also done by Hank Snow.

Mississippi River Blues

Hank Snow





Oh, you Mississippi River with waters so deep and wide
My thoughts of you keep rising just like an evening tide
I'm just like a seagull that's left the sea
Oh, your muddy waters keep on calling me

I'm gonna pack my grip and head that way
You'll see me hanging 'round again some day
'Cause I know that's the only way to lose
The Mississippi River blues

I've often ridden on your bosom from Memphis down to New Orleans Floating over muddy waters, drifting through familiar scenes
And when I hear that whistle of an old steamboat
Down that Mississippi river again, I'm a going to float

I'm gonna pack my grip and head that way
You'll see me hanging 'round again some day
'Cause I know that's the only way to lose
That mean old Mississippi River blues

Thats it. I knew it except for the pack my grip. that verse I forgot.
Been thinking of doing it as a poem with simple guitar accompaniment.

Thanks, John.

This was written by Jimmie Rodgers. I think he recorded several versions of the song.
Version 1
