"Jackson, Mississippi" as written by R.j. Ritchie and James Trombly....
And when the sunshine showed
Her face I felt like I was ready to die
Went lookin' for a place to hide
A hole I could crawl inside

Long lines
Whiskey bottles
And the same old song
I smell death in the air
And I know it won't be long

And I could say I'm trying to change
But that's just another lie
Its been a day and a half
And I'm still high

And I feel like Jackson Mississippi
A river runnin'
Like Jackson Mississippi
A river runnin'
Like Jackson Mississippi
A river runnin through my viens

And when the daylight disappeared
I took a good look inside
Behind my pride
I sat down and cried

I know I'm not a fool
But I don't know what's wrong
Maybe its time to pack
And just move on

And I could say I'm trying to change
But that would just be a lie
I'm lookin' for some one to tell me why

    General Commentyeah, it probably is somewhat associated with drugs, but I mean seriously, a day and a half and I am still high, of course drugs are involved, but sometimes drugs plus a certain mood are associated with a place, hell, I have felt like a lot of different places, and I think this is just a certain experience associated with a certain place, and once that feeling returns, the impulse to return to that particular place comes along with it

    General CommentI love this song, what ever it means, but I do have a problem with it. I hope who ever wrote this song realizes the Misssissippi River does not flow through Jackson Mississippi, if that's the river it's referring to.

    General CommentThe Pearl River runs' through Jackson, the Ross Barnett Reservoir is formed by a dam on the Pearl River. Kid Rock performed the Music Video for (Jacksn, Mississippi) ontop of the docks surrounding the Ross Barnett Reservoir.
