It keeps running down the tear-stained face
Of this lonely town and I drown
And I keep reaching for one good reason
Why you said goodbye and turned around
Oh, you're leavin' me in this empty state
And all I see are dark clouds as you drive away

Mississippi's cryin', baby
Mississippi's sad
I think we just figured out
That you ain't comin' back

The sky can see you leavin'
And it can't hold back the tears
Oh, it's pourin' down and my heart thinks it's dyin'
Mississippi's cryin', Mississippi's cryin'

The night keeps looking for headlights
Shining in this driveway but they don't shine
And I keep thinkin' this crazy storm will
Drive you home but not this time
Oh, my only wish is to change the weather
Are you comin' back or is it gonna rain forever'

Mississippi's cryin', baby
Mississippi's sad
I think we just figured out
That you ain't comin' back

The sky can see you leavin'
And it can't hold back the tears
Oh, it's pourin' down and my heart thinks it's dyin'
Mississippi's cryin', Mississippi's cryin'

Where you goin', baby'
What's in Tennessee'
You never said a word about Memphis
So who is she'

It keeps running down the tear-stained face
Of this lonely town and I drown

Mississippi's cryin', baby
Mississippi's sad
I think we just figured out
That you ain't comin' back

The sky can see you leavin'
And it can't hold back the tears
Mississippi, Mississippi
Mississippi's cryin', Mississippi's cryin'
