Lynyrd Skynyrd Mississippi Blood Lyrics

She’s got Mississippi Blood runnin’ through her veins
Her mama was a looker from New Orleans
Daddy worked hard with a gun in his boot
Blow you away click bang boom boom
Good ol’ dude said she broke his heart
Threw it on the ground, stomped it hard
But I wanna tell you a little song I know
Before they be carvin’ my name in stone

Oh oh
She’s a dirty little thing, crazy as hell
Oh oh
She’s my rock-n’-roll queen,sweet southern belle
Oh oh
She’s a lipstick stain on a burned cigarette
Oh oh

Like an old blues song stuck in my head
Mississippi mud and I’m sinking in
Cut off jeans, tied t-shirt
Drinkin’ from the bottle, rollin’ in the dirt
Foot on the gas, El Camino
“Ridin’ With the King” on the radio

Oh oh
She’s a dirty little thing, crazy as hell
Oh oh
She’s my rock-n’-roll queen, sweet southern belle
Oh oh
She’s a lipstick stain on a burned cigarette
Oh oh

Like an old blues song stuck in my head
Mississippi mud and I’m sinking in
She reads from the good book just to be bad
Lyin’ in the hay, she likes to move fast
An old blues song stuck in my head
Work all day and go out again

Oh oh
She’s a dirty little thing, crazy as hell
Oh oh
She’s my rock-n’-roll queen, sweet southern belle
Oh oh
She’s a lipstick stain on a burned cigarette
Oh oh

Like an old blues song stuck in my head
Mississippi mud and I’m sinking in
