Biography

Mississippi Road is a pop/blues band based out of Nashville. Their debut album, Songs from 33, features piano-driven originals that combine the sounds of early American music (blues, country, jazz, soul) with a pop sensibility. It starts with the sultry voice of Elzadie Martin, who also plays bass. Eric Kinny completes the duo with his bluesy piano playing and honest songwriting. The name Mississippi Road comes from one of their songs that tells the story of Robert Johnson selling his soul to the devil.
“I sold my soul on Mississippi Road”

Lyrics

Blue Eyed Devil from Kansas

Written By: Russ Patterson

Blue eyed devil from Kansas
You moved into Boston to better your soul
The winter you thrived in
The summer you died in
Your blood runs naturally cold

Blue eyed devil from Kansas
How was I supposed to say no
You sneak up behind me
Speak my name softly
You put on one hell of a show

You cried baby hold me
But nobody told me
You’d turn your back so fast and run
You swore that you’d need me
That you’d never leave me
It’s different now that you’re gone

Blue eyed devil from Kansas
Your disguise as an angel unfolds
Eyes that spoke sweetly
Now try and defeat me
Illusions with mirrors and smoke

Blue eyed devil from Kansas
This room is spinning so slow
The bed that I cried in
Is the place that I died in
As you’re sayin’ you need to go

Sayin’ you’re sorry
Doesn’t halt all my scarring
Wounds to my heart like a knife
The plane that you’re on now
Won’t stop till it’s touched down
Some place far away from me

Blue eyed devil from Kansas
I hope that you’re happier now
The people are so kind
You’re able to unwind
And push me out of your mind

Blue eyed devil from Kansas
You moved into Boston and buried my soul
