Go, Mississippi


Words and Music by Houston Davis

Adopted in 1962

Verse:

States may sing their songs of praise

With waving flags and hip-hoo-rays,

Let cymbals crash and let bells ring

‘Cause here’s one song I’m proud to sing.

Choruses:

Go, Mississippi, keep rolling along,

Go, Mississippi, you cannot go wrong,

Go, Mississippi, we’re singing your song,

M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I



Go, Mississippi, you’re on the right track,

Go, Mississippi, and this is a fact,

Go, Mississippi, you’ll never look back,

M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I



Go, Mississippi, straight down the line,

Go, Mississippi, ev’rything’s fine,

Go, MIssissippi, it’s your state and mine,

M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I



Go, Mississippi, continue to roll,

Go, Mississippi, the top is the goal,

Go, Mississippi, you’ll have and you’ll hold,

M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I



Go, Mississippi, get up and go,

Go, Mississippi, let the world know,

That our Mississippi is leading the show,

M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I
