MY HEART 'S IN MISSISSIPPI.
My heart's in Mississippi,
'Tis de place whar I was born; 'Tis dar I planted sugar cane,
'Tis dar I hoed de corn, Dey have taken me to Texas,
A thousand miles below ; Yet my heart's in Mississippi
Wherever I go.
Chorus.—Yet my heart's in Mississippi,
'Tis de place whar I was born; 'Tis dar I planted sugar cane, 'Tis dar I hoed de corn.
Mobile may boast of beauties,
Dat lemonade de street; But dey neber hab a sixpence,
To ax you to a treat; De Mississippi yellow gals,
Dey always treat dar beaux,
Den my heart 's in Mississippi
Wherever I go.
Chorus.
Way down in Mississippi,
De fields am always green; And orange trees in blossom,
De whole year may be seen,
