"Mississippi" as written by Scott Michael Underwood, Charles Colin, James W Stafford, Pat Monahan and Robert S Hotchkiss....
They call her Mississippi
But she don't flow to me
Spends her light on the Bayou
But she don't come to see
She's the one that makes my dreams
They call her Mississippi
But she don't flow to me

The shape of her horizon
Makes the morning sun
When she puts her eyes on
Each and anyone
She's the one that makes me fall
Midnight moon shines through it all

She's the one that makes me fall
Midnight moon shines through it all
She's the one that makes my dreams
They call her Mississippi
But she don't flow to me
They call her Mississippi
But she don't flow to me

    General CommentI thought it was about a girl for a long time but kinda switched over to the river idea. I traveled to the Mississippi river and made it to the shores really late at night after a pretty long road trip with my friend. We put the song on and drove as close to the river as we could and it just fit perfectly. You just have to see the river reflect the full moon ...

    My Interpretationthey call her mississippi( meaning to me this girl is amazing and has a powerful name the kind of name that makes feel when u hear it)

    but she dont flow to me( to me this beautiful girl has no intrest in him much less know he's there)

    spends her light on the bayou, but see dont come see me( this girl goes out and spends her time and beauty out not w him),(meaning she doesnt hang out w him and probly doesnt even know him)

    She's the one that makes my dreams(means that she is all he dreams of)

    The shape of her horizon
    Makes the morning sun( the shape of her body the curves in her figure makes is so beautiful it makes his days that much brighter)


    When she puts her eyes on
    Each and anyone( when she's dressed up and make up, each anyone would love to have her)


    She's the one that makes me fall
    Midnight moon shines through it all
    (thats the girl that makes him feel the butterflies, makes him feel love hence fall in love.. midnight moon isnt every night but if u get lucky and see thru the light u can def tell that he wants her that way cause hes trying not to be obvious duh lol thats why the song sounds like a song about a river... really a song about a river? i mean i can see a song about a state or drugs but rivers.. grow up this guys is def in love and made a badass song, mad props, today is the first time i hear it its on my itunes now thks.. ezie

    General Commentthis song is talking about this girl who he thinks is the perfect match for him she is so beautiful. Everyone sees it and acknowledges her beauty, but as hard as he tries he cannot make her his.

    General Commentfor me this song is about a girl who is a bitch and she is the typical girl who makes out with everybody, so there's this guy who really likes her and with all the rumors he thinks it would be easy to get her. but he just can't

    General Commenti think it can just have the duel meaning, like comparing a love to the river. she's as beautiful as the mississippi, she's the the moon reflected off it and all, but he can flow down the river, but she wont flow to him. He can't have her. beautiful song tho, very emotional

    General CommentI think this song is predominately reffering to the Mississippi River. This is one of my all-time favorite songs.

    General Commentmakes me think of summer.
    when all the stars are out.
    and those nights you spend with that one person.
    but you can't tell them how you feel; it wil ruin it.
    but then again, some of the things they did already have.
