900 miles til I see your face
300 shows, not a moment’s grace
Downtown, low down, and high
I would like to see the Mississippi ‘fore I die

West Coast you’re an old ghost to me
It’s where we fell the old family tree
Timber towns are gone now, forests have run dry
I would like to see the Mississippi ‘fore I die

Chasing songs down empty streets
Does it make me strong or does it make me weak?
Pullin up roots, chokin the lines, valleys so deep and waters so wide
I would like to see the Mississippi ‘fore I die

I’m on a long haul heartbreak
