M I double S I double S I double P I

M I double S I double S I double P I

Right in the middle of the cotton belt

Down in the Mississippi Delta

Wearin' last years possum belt

Smack dab in the Mississippi Delta

Have me a little that Johnny cake

A little bit of that apple pan dowdy

Pickin them scuppernon's off that vine

Chigger bite, it's goin' to beat howdy

Ate me a bucket of Muscadine

Sit on the riverbank after dark

Drop my line down a crawdad hole

Do him in with a scaly bark



M I double S I double S I double P I

M I double S I double S I double P I

Right in the middle of the cotton belt

Down in the Mississippi Delta

Wearin last years possum belt

Smack dab in the Mississippi Delta

Sittin and scratchin' mosquito bites

Old fox done give him the slip

Watchin' the mornin' glories grow

In Biloxi on an overnight trip

I bet five dollars to win two bits

Eat a peppermint stick on Sunday

Ain't no use in'a hurrying up

Can't leave till a week from Monday



In the Mississippi Delta

Miss-iss-siss-ippi Delta
