Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can.
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

See the alligators all a waitin' nearby
Sooner or later they know I'm gonna try.
When she waves from the bank don't you know I know
It's goodbye fishin' line, see you while ago.
With a Louisiana woman waitin' on the other side
The Mississippi River don't look so wide.

Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can.
The Mississippi River can't keep us apart
There's too much love in the Mississippi heart.
Too much love in this Louisiana heart.

Well, I thought I'd been loved but I never had
Till I was wrapped In the arms of a Mississippi man.
When he holds me close it feels almost
Like another hurricane just ripped the coast.
If he can't come to me I'm gonna go to him
That Mississippi River Lord I'm gonna swim.

Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can.

Well, Mississippi River, Lord, it's one mile wide
And I'm gotta get me to the other side.
Mississippi man, I'm losin' my mind
Gotta have your loving one more time.
I'm gonna jump in the river and here I go
Too bad alligatior you swim too slow.
