"Jackson" as written by Billy Wheeler and Jerry Leiber....
We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went out
I'm goin' to Jackson, I'm gonna mess around
Yeah, I'm goin' to Jackson
Look out Jackson town

Well, go on down to Jackson; go ahead and wreck your health
Go play your hand you big-talkin' man, make a big fool of yourself
Yeah, go to Jackson; go comb your hair
Honey, I'm gonna snowball Jackson
See if I care

When I breeze into that city, people gonna stoop and bow (hah)
All them women gonna make me, teach 'em what they don't know how
I'm goin' to Jackson, you turn-a loose-a my coat
'Cause I'm goin' to Jackson
"Goodbye" that's all she wrote

But they'll laugh at you in Jackson, and I'll be dancin' on a Pony Keg
They'll lead you 'round town like a scalded hound
With your tail tucked between your legs
Yeah, go to Jackson, you big-talkin' man
And I'll be waitin' in Jackson, behind my Jaypan Fan

Well now, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper Sprout
We've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went
I'm goin' to Jackson, and that's a fact
Yeah, we're goin' to Jackson, ain't never comin' back

Well, we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout
And we've been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since the fire went

    General Comment"The couple is going to Jackson Mississippi to rekindle their marriage."
    __________________________________________________

    No they're not! They threaten each other that they are going to runaway to Jackson ALONE.

    Thus the line:
    "I'm going to Jackson,
    I'm gonna mess around."

    It implies that this threat has come up many times in this marriage.
