Lyrics

The Backroads of Mississippi

Written By: Allison Baxter

“The Backroads of Mississippi”
She Looks in his eyes as they wave goodbye, blinking back tears so he can’t see her cry. He’s leaving for New York far from the open sky, but there’s a tug-of-war goin’ on in this heart.
He’s yearning to be something more that a good ‘ol country boy. But there’s a soul bursting melody that was left unsung. In the backroads of Mississippi. He left her on the backroads of Mississippi.
Long letters too many broken pencils, sketching out bridges for their distant hearts. Cell phone lines are breaking hands are shaking, she’s praying that maybe he’s wondering why.
Chorus
Singin’ the blues on her vintage guitar, while he’s gaze' n at his heaven under neon stars.
Chorus
Why did he leave her on the backroads of Mississippi. On the backroads of Mississippi.
“The Backroads of Mississippi”
