Bob Dylan - Mississippi текст песни

Words and music by bob dylan

Every step of the way, we walk the line

Your days are numbered, so are mine

Time is piling up, we struggle and we stray

Were all boxed in, nowhere to escape

Citys just a jungle, more games to play

Trapped in the heart of it, tryin to get away

I was raised in the country, I been working in the town

I been in trouble ever since I set my suitcase down

Got nothing for you, I had nothing before

Dont even have anything for myself anymore

Sky full of fire, pain pouring down

Nothing you can sell me, Ill see you around

All my powers of expression and thoughts so sublime

Could never do you justice in reason or rhyme

Only one thing I did wrong

Stayed in mississippi a day too long

Well, the devils in the alley, mules in the stall

Say anything you wanna, I have heard it all

I was thinking about the things that rosie said

I was dreaming I was sleeping in rosies bed

Walking through the leaves, falling from the trees

Feeling like a stranger nobody sees

So many things that we never will undo

I know youre sorry, Im sorry too

Some people will offer you their hand and some wont

Last night I knew you, tonight I dont

I need something strong to distract my mind

Im gonna look at you til my eyes go blind

Well I got here following the southern star

I crossed that river just to be where you are

Only one thing I did wrong

Stayed in mississippi a day too long

Well my ships been split to splinters and its sinking fast

Im drowning in the poison, got no future, got no past

But my heart is not weary, its light and its free

Ive got nothing but affection for all those who sailed with me

Everybodys moving, if they aint already there

Everybodys got to move somewhere

Stick with me baby, stick with me anyhow

Things should start to get interesting right about now

My clothes are wet, tight on my skin

Not as tight as the corner that I painted myself in

I know that fortune is waiting to be kind

So give me your hand and say youll be mine

Well, the emptiness is endless, cold as the clay

You can always come back, but you cant come back all the way

Only one thing I did wrong

Stayed in mississippi a day too long
