Roll On Mississippi
By Charley Pride

Capo 3


D        D/C#              Bm                 G     D     
Walking along, whistling a song, barefoot and fancy free
  D              D/C#       Bm                   G      D  
A big riverboat, passing us by, she’s headed for New Orleans
          A                             D
There she goes, disappearing around the bend.
D             A                              D
Roll on Mississippi; you make me feel like a child again.


A cool river breeze, like peppermint leaves, the taste of it takes me back
Chew’n on a straw, torn overalls, a cane pole and old straw hat and muddy river
Just like a long lost friend
Roll on Mississippi, you make me feel like a child again


Chorus:
D    G       D      G          D
Roll on Mississippi, big river roll
           Bm          A                  G    A
You’re the childhood dream that I grew up on
             G   A            Bm
Roll on Mississippi, carry me home
    G                             A
Now I can see I’ve been away too long
     D        G            D 
Roll on, Mississippi, roll on


Now, when the world's spinning round, too fast for me And I need a place to dream 
So I come to your banks, I sit in your shade and relive the memories
Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn
Roll on Mississippi; you make me feel like a child again

Chorus


Roll on, Mississippi, Roll on
Roll on, Mississippi, Roll on 
Roll on, Mississippi, Roll on
