 1.P[D]ut me on a boat on the mighty Mississippi
 Let old man river sl[G]ow me d[D]own
 Been too long gone from my sweet dixie
 Chasin' a dream from t[A]own to t[D]own
 
 2.So I called my baby in Mobile, Alabama
 Said meet me in Memphis on the Jackson Queen
 Tell you right now we ain't in no big hurry
 To make our way down to New Orleans
 
 C.Sl[G]ow m[C]e d[D]own
 Somethin' 'bout the rhythm and the rollin' of the river
 Sl[G]ow m[C]e d[D]own
 Rocks me like a baby in a rockin' chair
 Sl[G]ow m[C]e d[D]own
 Sometin' 'bout the smell of a sweet magnolia
 Sl[G]ow m[C]e d[D]own
 Makes me forget all my trounles and cares
 Just a few more miles and I'll be there
 
 3.Well I need a little time for some relaxation
 A little bit of lovin' from my sugar pie
 Only Heaven knows how my heart's been achin'
 For a big yellow moon in a southern sky
 
 (Repeat chorus and 3rd verse)
