Muddy Water Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Dixie moonlight, Swanee shore,
Headed home bound just once more
To my Mississippi Delta home.
Verse 2
Southland has that grand garden spot,
Although, you believe it or not,
I hear those breezes a-whispering, "Come on back to me!".
Verse 3
Muddy water round my feet,
Muddy water in the street,
Just Gods don't shelter
Down on the Delta!
Verse 4
Muddy water in my shoes,
Reelin' and rockin' to them low-down blues,
They live in comfort and ease 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's my home!
Verse 6
Got my toes turned Dixie way,
Round the Delta let me lay,
My heart cries out for muddy water!
