Mississippi In July (Worsham Charlie)

These delta roads, everyone I know By the cotton fields and railroad tracks. It's more than just the heat, most folks Who would get the chance to leave but don't come back. Last time I thought about you in a wedding dress I would've been holding your hand. But at seventeen you promise things That you don't really understand. Mississippi in July, magnolia moonlight The warm wind was just right for staying up all night And letting love fly; Mississippi in July. My heart might as well be one of those canes Tied to the back of your limousine. It was hanging by a thread, so I went ahead And cut the string. If I asked you way back when, if you'd take my hand Would you say "I do"? I'm supposed to hope you're happy, But letting go don't feel the way it's supposed to. Mississippi in July, magnolia moonlight The warm wind was just right for staying up all night And letting love fly; Mississippi in July. Magnolia moonlight The warm wind was just right for staying up all night But some memories never die, honeysuckle kisses If I could live on wishes, I'd stay here all the time Oh, Mississippi in July. Mississippi in July. These delta roads, everyone I know By the cotton fields and railroad tracks.
