Mississippi Kid

Lyrics: Kooper, Van Zant, Burns
Music: Kooper, Van Zant, Burns

Played by Luther Dickinson with Phil Lesh & Friends in November 2013 as part of their (and American Jubilee's) cover of the Lynyrd Skynyrd album "(Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd)".

I've got my pistols in my pockets boys
I'm Alabama bound
I've got my pistols in my pockets boys, I'm
I'm Alabama bound
Well, I'm not looking for no trouble
But nobody dogs me 'round

Well, I'm going to fetch my woman, people
Tri-cities here I come
Well, I'm going to fetch my woman, people
Tri-cities here I come
'Cause she was raised up on that cornbread
And I know she's gonna give me some

When the kid hits Alabama, people
Don't you try and dog him 'round
When the kid hits Alabama, people
Don't you try and dog him 'round
'Cause if you people cause me trouble
Then I've got to put you in the ground

Well, I was born in Mississippi
And I don't take any stuff from you
Well, I was born in Mississippi
And I don't take any stuff from you
And if I hit you on your head
Boy, its got to make you black and blue

Well, I ride to Alabama
With my pistols out by my side
Well, I ride to Alabama
With my pistols out by my side
'Cause down in Alabama
You can run, but you sure can't hide
