Moonlight Mississippi (A Whistle Stop Town)

Moonlight, Mississippi is a whistle-stop town
They take in the sidewalks when the sun goes down
It's slow as molasses that drips from a can
But Moonlight, Mississippi is the promised land

With their deep south talking that's so pleasant to hear
Like corn on the cob it's mighty sweet on the ear
There's just seven houses and one yellow hound
For Moonlight, Mississippi is a whistle-stop town

Down round the levy where magnolias bloom
I've never seen such a sight in my life
The air gets so heavy with sweet perfume
You can cut it up with a knife

At night on each plantation cottom gleems so darn white
Stars go on vacation, folks don't need a light
The trains don't stop at Moonlight unless they're flagged down
For Moonlight, Mississippi is a whistle-stop town

You're gonna love my old whistle-stop town
