Verse 1
Oh, I've never known a feeling
Oh, I've never known a place
That makes me feel I'm home again
When I'm a thousand miles away

Those bright lights in New York City
They shine bright from far away
Oh, but nothing comes and steals my heart
Like that Mississippi way

Chorus
Oh, I wanna go back home
Oh, I wanna go back home
Mississippi, take me home

Verse 2
Oh, there's something bout that sunset sky
Drifting on across the hill
And magnolia leaves are dancing
With that whispering autumn breeze

But for every reason not to go
There's a thousand more to stay
Like that feeling that your family brings
A love not taken away.

Chorus
Oh, I wanna go back home
Oh, I wanna go back home
Mississippi, take me home

Oh, I wanna go back home
Oh, I wanna go back home
Mississippi, take me home
Won't you take me home

Bridge
Let's go, let's go home
Let's go, let's go home
Let's go, let's go home
We're Mississippi bound

Chorus
Oh, I wanna go back home
Oh, I wanna go back home
Mississippi, take me home
