moses brown lyrics – kenny mehler

moses brown – written by kenny mehler

mississippi is the place where i want to go now
there’s a town where moses brown got down
pick the pieces up and staggered around
worked nights in the kitchen, knowing there was some place he’d rather be
well, he saved enough to get back on his feet
if you listen you can hear him speak…he said

mississippi…sing it with me
how do you like me now
hallelujah…what’s it to yah
he used to say with a smile now

were’ getting down with the sound from moses brown

moses liked his woman as much as he liked his wine
on the banks of the mississippi river is where he spent his time
well i can remember the day he lost his mind in a couple of ways
a bottle of booze and a banjo and the old mans doing fine…he said

mississippi…sing it with me
how do you like me now
hallelujah…what’s it to yah
he used to say with a smile now

were’ getting down with the sound from moses brown

one day by the river, moses had more than a little…yah know
he fell in wearing nothing but his skin and i think that’s how the story goes
they say if you listen, by the bridge at the end of the town
you can still hear the sound of moses brown rocking you down from the underground…yah know what he said

mississippi…sing it with me
how do you like me now
hallelujah…what’s it to yah
he used to say with a smile now
