MOUND BAYOU Feather / Razaf as rec by Maxine Sullivan Aug 20th 1956 New York Cryin' on my pillow, Weepin' like a willow, Feel just like a fish that's cast upon the shore, Waitin' for the tide to take it home once more. Though asleep or wakin', My poor heart keeps achin'! When you see me walkin' with my head way down, It's because I miss my Mississippi town. Mound Bayou, I feel blue and all in, Mound Bayou, I can hear you callin'! All my friends are lucky to be way back there, If they knew what I've been through, they'd stay back there! Mound Bayou, got to cover ground for Mound Bayou, that's the town I'm bound for! Wish my arms were long enough, here's what I'd do, I'd reach and wrap them gently round my Mound Bayou! Mound Bayou, I can hear you callin'! All my friends are lucky to be way back there, If they knew what I've been through, they'd stay back there! Mound Bayou, got to cover ground for Mound Bayou, that's the town I'm bound for! Wish my arms were long enough, here's what I'd do, I'd reach and wrap them gently round my Mound Bayou!
