"My Head's In Mississippi" as written by and Joe Michael Hill Frank Lee Beard....
I'm shufflin' through the Texas sand,
but my head's in Mississippi.
I'm shufflin' through the Texas sand,
but my head's in Mississippi.
The blues has got a hold of me.
I believe I'm gettin' dizzy.

Help me now

I keep thinkin' 'bout that night in Memphis,
Lord, I thought I was in Heaven.
I keep thinkin' 'bout that night in Memphis,
I thought I was in Heaven.
But I was stumblin' through the parking lot
of an invisible seven eleven.

What was I doin out there?

Where's my head baby?
Somewhere in Mississippi.

Last night I saw a cowgirl.
She was floatin' across the ceiling.
And last night I saw a naked cowgirl.
She was floatin' across the ceiling.
She was mumblin to some howlin' wolf
about some voodoo healin'.

Mmm Baby

    General CommentJust a guess, the singer is currently in Texas, but is thinking about an alcohol/drug and sex filled period of time in the past while in Mississippi. The memories are so strong that he has started to lose track of his current reality in Texas, due to his daydreaming. ZZ Top rules!
