"Mississippi River Girl" as written by and Joe Forstman Josh Kelley....
She would sit alone by the bank
Always coming home so late
She?d take off all her clothes and jump in
I?d be giving up, man, if she?d be giving in

Baby, let me dry your hair
I got some clothes that you can wear
Over there on the bed

And I?d always forgive her
But the Mississippi river never did

She?d sit out on the dock and put her feet in
She was skipping rocks
And she was skipping school again

She stole my only cigarettes
She smoked the whole pack one by one
Light 'em up and put 'em to her lips

And I?d always forgive her
But the Mississippi river never did

She was always running away
No matter how hard I tried, she would never stay
And I wish that she would run to me
Like the Mississippi river is running towards the sea

And now my poor heart is on the mend
And I?ll always be with her
Because the Mississippi river never ends

I?ll always be with her
Because the Mississippi river never ends
