Lyrics
Mississippi river I'm goin' down to New Orleans
a by the M, I, crooked letter, crooked letter, I,
Crooked letter, crooked letter, I,
Humpback, humpback, I! Mississippi!
Flowin' down to New Orleans

And it flows right by my Tennessee home
Where history was made by steam boat Bill,
M-E-M-P-H-I-S, Memphis is the town I mean!

A way down yonder in the land of cotton,
Folks like mine are near forgotten.
What a wonderful thrill! It is to be, down in Memphis, Tennessee.

A by the M, I, crooked letter, crooked letter, I,
Crooked letter, crooked letter, I,
Humpback, humpback, I! Mississippi!
Flowin' down to New Orleans

By the M, I, crooked letter, I,
Crooked letter, crooked letter, I,
Humpback, humpback, I! Mississippi!
Flowin' down to New Orleans

Watch it flow and ride along
Where history was made by steam boat Bill,
M-E-M-P-H-I-S, Memphis is the town I mean.

A way down yonder in the land of cotton,
Folks like mine are near forgotten.
What a wonderful thrill! It is to be down in Memphis, Tennessee

A by the M, I, crooked letter, crooked letter, I,
Crooked letter, crooked letter, I,
Humpback, humpback, I! Mississippi!
Flowin', down to New Orleans!
