               To love so deep, deep in my soul, a love so strong, that I pray I 
             can go on. To find someone, so as not to be alone, I pray my Love
             will go on. I stop and gander out across that land , that sea and I
             realize,what,s for me.  To look and realize where I am, my heart
             fold,s, because of what I see.  My dayly chore,s I perform, again
             and again.
               To feel for the Earth, that I feel for my land and alway,s feel
             more strength to go on again. To work myself on my land and to kn-
             ow, that I will Love again.  Mississippi Love Blue,s, Loving Again,
             and Again.  Traveling on across the land, searching for another love
             to began with again.
                My Mississippi Love never, knowing when I will love, ever Love, w
             -ill I Ever Love Again. To travel my land, and think of where I,ve
             been, now do I feel at home, or should I Journey on Again ? 
                To be awaken with the Sun touching my Heart, that sometime,

             make,s me feel at home. So to find a place, and clear a space, a
             place so far just for me, just for me to be alone to gather my t-
             hought,s, of having a home. Mississippi Love Blue,s,where has all
             the love Gone ?  Under that Concrete Contract,Called The Heads-
             tone. That Rock Of Age,s. That Contract With Death To Stay Gone.
             So you may find it my Brother as you turn Each Headstone, Where 
             they all have Gone.
