Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Dixie moonlight, Swanee shore
Headed homebound just once more
To my Mississippi delta home
Verse 2
Southland has that grand garden spot
Although you believe or not
I hear those breeze a-whispering:
"Come on back to me"
Verse 3
Muddy water 'round my feet
Muddy water in the street
Just God don't shelter
Down on the delta
Verse 4
Muddy water in my shoes
Reeling and rocking to them lowdown blues
They live in ease and comfort down there
I do declare
Verse 5
Been away a year today
To wander and roam
I don't care it's muddy there
But see it is my home
Got my toes turned Dixie way
'Round the delta let me lay
My heart cries out for muddy water
