Here's To the State of Mississippi Song Lyrics

 
Wyclef Jean
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Here's To the State of Mississippi Here's to the state of Mississippi,

For Underheath her borders, the devil draws no lines,



If you drag her muddy river, nameless bodies you will find.

Whoa the fat trees of the forest have hid a thousand crimes,

The calender is lyin' when it reads the present time.

Whoa here's to the land you've torn out the heart of,

Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of!

Here's to the state of Mississippi,

Woah and here's to the state of Mississippi,

Here's to the people of Mississippi

Who say the folks up north, they just don't understand

And they tremble in their shadows at the thunder of the Klan

The sweating of their souls can't wash the blood from off their hands

They smile and shrug their shoulders at the murder of a man

Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of

Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

Here's to the state of Mississippi,

Woah and here's to the state of Mississippi,

Here's to the state of Mississippi,

Woah and here's to the state of Mississippi
