mississippi’s cryin’ lyrics – payton rae

“mississippi’s cryin'”

it keeps raining down the tear stained face
of this lonely town and i drowned
and i keep reaching for one good reason
why you said goodbye and turned around

oh, you’re leaving me in this empty state
and all i see are dark clouds as you drive away

mississippi’s crying, baby, mississippi’s sad
i think we just figured out you ain’t coming back
the sky can see you leaving and it can’t hold back the tears
oh, it’s pouring down and my heart thinks it’s dying
mississippi’s crying, mississippi’s crying

the night keeps looking for a headlight shining
in this driveway but they don’t shine
and i keep thinking this crazy storm
will drive you home but not this time

oh, my only wish is to change the weather
are you coming back or is it gonna rain forever?

mississippi’s crying, baby, mississippi’s sad
i think we just figured out you ain’t coming back
the sky can see you leaving and it can’t hold back the tears
oh, it’s pouring down and my heart thinks it’s dying
mississippi’s crying, mississippi’s crying

where you going, baby, what’s in tennessee?
you never said a word about memphis, so who is she?

it keeps raining down the tear stained face
of this lonely town and i drowned
