Omar and the Howlers Take Me Back Lyrics

Last updated: 10/27/2012 07:18:13 PM

I remember when I was a young boy,
Get your five fives and a jar in summer time
I still hear that longsome wind still blowing
Is it on the central smokes all down the mine.

Take me back, Mississippi,
It’s been so long, but it seems like yesterday.
Take me back, Mississippi,
It’s been so long, but the memories do not fade.

Used to go to town in the morning,
Walk to the corner, look and not remain
I still see old Jimmy John singing,
Maybe guitar and the frames had bars that changed.

Take me back, Mississippi,
It’s been so long, but it seems like yesterday.
Take me back, Mississippi,
It’s been so long, but the memories do not fade.

I still picture grandma when she call me
“come on, boy, you know it’s supper time”
And I would run as fast as I could run
To the fried chicken, greens and apple pie.

Take me back, Mississippi,
It’s been so long, but it seems like yesterday.
Take me back, Mississippi,
It’s been so long, but the memories do not fade.
