On the day that I was born, daddy sat down and cried
I had the mark just as plain as day which could not be denied
They say that Cain caught Abel rolling loaded dice
Ace of spades behind his ear and him not thinking twice

Half-step Mississippi Uptown Toodleloo
Hello baby, I'm gone, goodbye
Half a cup of rock and rye
Farewell to you old southern sky
I'm on my way, on my way

If all you got to live for is what you left behind
Get yourself a powder charge and seal that silver mine
I lost my boots in transit babe, a pile of smoking leather
Nailed a retread to my feet and prayed for better weather

Half-step Mississippi Uptown Toodleloo
Hello baby, I'm gone, good-bye
Half a cup of rock and rye
Farewell to you old southern sky
I'm on my way, on my way

They say that when your ship comes in the first man takes the sails
The second takes the after deck, the third the planks and rails
What's the point to calling shots this cue ain't straight in line
Cue ball's made of Styrofoam and no one's got the time

Half-step Mississippi Uptown Toodleloo
Hello baby, I'm gone, goodbye
Half a cup of rock and rye
Farewell to you old southern sky
I'm on my way, on my way

Across the Rio Grand-eo
Across the lazy river
Across the Rio Grand-eo
Across the lazy river
