Leaving Mississippi again,
I’m leaving Mississippi again
Haven’t found a reason to stay
For many a day now,
So I’m leaving Mississippi again.

Magnolias sure smell sweet,
Your kisses swept me off my feet.
Even though you begged me to stay,
Down on one knee now
I’m leaving Mississippi again.
The moon’s gonna light my way
Down old 49 Highway;
I’m leaving Mississippi again.

That old house of mine’s got secrets as old as time.
The ghosts who roam those rooms are telling me to go.
There’s no love left in your eyes--sorry, I’ve got my pride.
The past we shared is dead and gone.
It’s time for you to let go,
Time for you to let me go (oh, oh)

I’m leaving Mississippi again.
Ain’t been my home
Since I don’t know when.
The magnolias sure smell sweet,
But I just can’t take the heat.
So I’m leaving Mississippi--
Leaving Mississippi--
I’m leaving Mississippi again.
Don’t wanna leave Mississippi—
My heart will stay in Mississippi.
But I just don’t think I’ll pass this way again.
I just don’t think I’ll pass this way again.
