Bobbie Gentry

"Mississippi Delta"

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 pelt
Smack dab in the Mississippi Delta

Have me a little of that Johnny cake
A little bit of that apple pan dowdy
Pickin them scoopenoggin'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

One-ree-o-ree-eerie-ann
Fidles-farce-nickory-john-queery-quan

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 pelt
Smack dab in the Mississippi Delta

Sittin here scratchin' mosquito bites
Old fox, I 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

One-ree-o-ree-eerie-ann
Fidles-farce-nickory-john-queery-quan

In the Mississippi Delta
Miss-iss-siss-ippi Delta
