Mississippi Moon

Lyrics: Peter Rowan
Music: Peter Rowan

You tell me you're lonely, I know how you feel
Leaning up at the bars, rocking back on my heels
She's a wild bird that wanders, too easy to stray
I knew she had to lose me to find her own way

Oh Corey, I'll be coming soon
Through the Louisiana pines to the Mississippi moon
Through the Louisiana pines to the Mississippi moon

A wave on the ocean, a whirlwind on the sand
I took a notion that her ship could not land
then light me a candle in the forest so deep
honey lay down here beside me, angels rock us to sleep
