Track Name: Mississippi
Oh Mississippi is such a pretty sight
Spanish moss and cypress and swamps black as night
A warm rain is falling this morning off and on
But it ain’t nothing, anyway not enough to slow me down
Lately it’s felt like one long chase
To get me to this place

I’ve been rolling down this highway forever and a day
My traveling time is over and I’m headed home to stay
I can’t wait to see you and to hold you close to me
You know it never made a lick of sense till I began to see
That our lives are not just one long race
To get us to this place

I’m not proud of the times that I made you cry
This garden’s been watered by your tears and mine
That’s just the way of the world, so don’t worry bout what’s been
You see the golden sun of summer and winter’s chilly wind
Have carved out a safe and sacred space
And brought us to this place

Oh Mississippi is such a pretty sight
Spanish moss and cypress and swamps black as night
A warm rain is falling this morning off and on
But it ain’t nothing, anyway not enough to slow me down
So just for today I’ll pick up my pace
And get me to this place (Oh Mississippi)
Track Name: Close to Me
Like a wild flower needs rain in the spring
Like a sparrow needs the wind under wing
Like a setting sun melts into the tree
Oh my love I need you close to me

I have never been
More thankful to have a friend
To stick with me through thick and thin
I want to let it show
I want you, I want you
I want you to know

When all is said and done
I know I’m the lucky one
One lucky lovin’ son of a gun
I want my love to show
I want you, I want you
I want you to know
