I'm a Mississippi woman

Born in Biloxi, Mississippi

Where' there's a sweet smell of honeysuckle

There's a flutter from a hummingbird

​Down in Mississipi

You'll meet the friendliest people

In the world


Those southerners are friendly

Everybody's nice

They say come on home for supper 

Have some blackeyed peas and rice

Or some Georgia peach cobbler

Or a little pecan pie

We'll sing Amazing Grace 

And the Sweet By and By

If you need a helping hand

They'll gladly give you one

That's what it's like in Mississippi

And that's where I come from


I've got the Mississippi mud

In between my toes

I'm making jumbalaya

and anything goes

Catch a lighting bug 

And put it in a jar

Then I'll let it go 

And Wish upon a star

There's a down home feeling
In a southern night
I'm a Mississippi woman
Singing in the Mississippi moonlight


There's Moma on the front porch swing

Daddy plays the banjo and We all sing

(repeat chorus)
