lyrics

There ain’t nothing but a two-lane highway
Between me and my childhood home
I was born in the county
Where there was plenty of room to roam
I couldn’t get into too much trouble
But I sure had a lot of fun
Mimosa trees, the birds and the bees
On Mississippi Number One
It cuts right through the Delta
Stretches far as two eyes can see
It won’t take you all the way to Vicksburg
Or to Memphis Tennessee
Westward lies the levee
With the river running by its side
And when the levee broke in ‘27
There was no place to run and hide
Mississippi Number 1
Carry me to my home
Where the Delta Blues was born
Along miles and miles of sandy loam
Mississippi Number 1
Delta Great River Road
I’m Greenville bound past the Indian Mounds
On Mississippi Number 1
It’s a dead end south at 14
It’s a dead end north at 49
It’s the last of the bluest highways
I recommend it if you have the time
It won’t get you there in a hurry
But you're sure to have a lot of fun
Rolling Fork up to Friars Point
On Mississippi Number 1
The ghosts of a thousand bluesmen
Where many has met his end
Fooling around with someone else’s gal
A Delta legend was born again
It’s a very familiar story
Crossroads on a moonlit run
And if you get there late the devil surely will wait
On Mississippi Number 1
