"Born In Mississippi" Lyrics

Chris LeDoux

I was born in Mississippi on the Gulf of Mexico

And I could hear the Gators a roar at night out on the old bayou

I remember Spanish Moss a hangin' from the cypress trees

And the smell of Honey Suckle on the Mississippi breeze

Thank you Mississippi for lovin' me

Thank you for givin' this country boy a place to dream

Thank you for old Cane Pole the fishin' hole

The grits and black eyed peas thank you Missippi for lovin' me

Then my family moved down to Texas when I was 12 years old

I took my first chew of plug tobacco and got hooked on rodeo

I rode my Buckskin pony where the old Red River flows

And my Texas pride still makes me cry when I remember the Alamo

Thank you Texas for loving me thank you for the country
road the horny toads

The chile and pinto beans thank you Texas for lovin' me

Now I live up in Wyoming I love home out on the range

But every now and then my mind goes roamin'

Down those country roads through my boy hood days

And after all these years I'd just like to say

Thank you America for lovin' me

Thank you for givin' this country boy a place to dream

Thank you for the country roads the folks I've known

From sea to shinning sea thank you America

Thank you mom and dad for lovin' me
