Dixie moonlight Swanee shore
To my Mississippi delta home
Southland got that grand garden spot
I hear those trees a-whispering

Muddy water in the street
Down on the delta
Muddy water in my shoes
They live in ease and comfort down there

To wander and roam
But this is my home
Got my toes turned Dixie way
My heart cries out for muddy water
Been away a year today
I don't care it's muddy there

'Round the delta let me lay
