"Up in Mississippi Tonight" as written by and Tom Petty....
Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
With a man she hardly knows
Sally's wearin' brand new clothes
Opportunity don't knock twice
So Sally said, bye, bye
I hope she is alright
Up in Mississippi tonight

Sally left before the sun could rise
When the city man came to town
She turned his head around
It was love with just one look
When she saw the size of his pocketbook
Oh Sally's doin' fine
She's up in Mississippi tonight

But there's a mountain boy who's gonna remember you
And Sally you're one old girl he hates to lose
But you did what you had to do
You know I'm happy for you
But sometimes please think of me up there in Biloxi

Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
Stayin' in a big hotel
Rich man payin' the bill
Drivin' a brand new car
Drinkin' in fancy bars
Oh Sally's havin' a time
She's up in Mississippi tonight

Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
Sally's up in mississippi tonight
