MISSISSIPPI VALLEY BLUES, THE (Gene Autry / Jimmy Long) Gene Autry & Jimmy Long - 1931 Also recorded by: Jenks "Tex" Carman The Mississippi Valley blues Mississippi Valley, I'm longing for you My poor heart is breaking, I'm sad and I'm blue Just to see your waters gleaming Of you each night I'm dreaming I've got the Mississippi Valley blues Many years have gone by since I wandered From my loved ones and all that was dear to me From my home in the Mississippi Valley That dear old place I long to be Mississippi Valley, I'm longing for you My poor heart is breaking, I'm sad and I'm blue Just to see your waters gleaming Of you each night I'm dreaming I've got the Mississippi Valley blues I can see my childhood chums as they wander Up and down the shady lanes where I used to roam I can see a dear old grey-haired mother Knelt in prayer beside the old hearth stone Mississippi Valley, I'm longing for you My poor heart is breaking, I'm sad and I'm blue Just to see your waters gleaming Of you each night I'm dreaming I've got the Mississippi Valley blues I'll go back to the Mississippi Valley There I'll settle down and spend my reclining days With my mother who's waiting and longing For her wayward boy that's gone astray Mississippi Valley, I'm longing for you My poor heart is breaking, I'm sad and I'm blue Just to see your waters gleaming Of you each night I'm dreaming I've got the Mississippi Valley blues (Contributed by Lou Rugani - The Music of the Stars (WLIP) - June 2012)
