I'M MISSISSIPPI BOUND

I'm Mississippi bound today
I'm not so very far away
Before the sun goes down again
I'll be near my journey's end

That is where I'm going, and I'm on my way
Back to Mississippi today
It's pleasant to be knowing before another day
I'll be getting home again
I will soon be with them, so precious to me
The sky will then be brighter for me
There's a grand old welcome waiting for me
Down a-Mississippi way

I'm Mississippi bound today
I'm riding all my blues away
I'm traveling on a southern train
It's speeding like an aeroplane

That is where I'm going, and I'm on my way
Back to Mississippi today
It's pleasant to be knowing before another day
I'll be getting home again
I will soon be with them, so precious to me
The sky will then be brighter for me
There's a grand old welcome waiting for me
Down a-Mississippi way

I'm Mississippi bound today
And I'm a-going back to stay
I'm gonna quit my rambling 'round
I'm going back to settle down

That is where I'm going, and I'm on my way
Back to Mississippi today
It's pleasant to be knowing before another day
I'll be getting home again
I will soon be with them, so precious to me
The sky will then be brighter for me
There's a grand old welcome waiting for me
Down a-Mississippi way

Thank you! I was having trouble with a couple of lines in the chorus. I didn't get "the sky will then be brighter" and I thought it was "that's the kind of welcome" but "There's a grand old welcome" makes more sense.

Thanks for sharing. Now I know where the Everly Brothers came from.

cnd, I know it's a lot of work to get all those lyrics down. Well done!

Thanks Peter and leenia, I enjoyed listening to the song and taking down the lyrics, and it was also a nice song I'd never heard before.
