MISTER AND MISSISSIPPI (Irving Gordon) Patti Page - 1951 Dennis Day - 1951 Tennessee Ernie Ford Gene Autry - 1951 Hank Penny - 1951 Eddy Arnold - 1959 Ronnie Hawkins - 1960 The Browns - 1964 I can't recall my Mother I don't remember Dad Mister and Mississippi Was all I ever had Oh, I was born to wander Oh, I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home Oh, I was born to wander I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home My cradle was the river My school a river boat My teacher was a gambler The slickest one afloat My teacher was a gambler The slickest one afloat He taught me not to gamble On a petticoat Oh, I was born to wander I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home Oh, I was born to wander I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home Oh, Darling, now I love you What more is there to say I love you like a barefoot girl Loves a summer day The way a wand'ring gypsy Loves the changing scenes Just like the restless river Loves old New Orleans Oh, I was born to wander I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home I'd love a tiny village A quiet country town A house, a little garden With kiddies running 'round You'd be a faithful husband I'd be a trusting friend Until I heard that steamboat Comin' 'round the bend Oh, I was born to wander I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home Oh, I was born to wander I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home And Mister and Mississippi Made me feel at home (Transcribed from the Patti Page recording by Mel Priddle - January 2005) ***** As recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford: I can't recall my Mother, I don't remember Dad Mister and Mississippi was all I ever had Oh, I was born to wander, oh, I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home. Oh, I was born to wander, oh, I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home. My cradle was the river, my school a river boat My teacher was a gambler, the slickest one afloat My teacher was a gambler, the slickest one afloat He taught me not to gamble on a petticoat. Oh, I was born to wander, oh, I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home. Oh! Betty Mae, I love you, I love you Betty Mae I love you like a barefoot boy, loves a summer day The way a wand'ring gypsy, loves the changing scenes Just like the restless river, loves old New Orleans. Oh, I was born to wander, oh, I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home. I'd love a tiny village, a quite country town A house, a little garden, with kiddies runnin' 'round I'd be a faithful husband, I'd be a trusting friend Until I heard that steamboat, comin' 'round the bend. Oh, I was born to wander, oh, I was born to roam And Mister and Mississippi made me feel at home. *****
