Текст песни Bob Dylan - Mississippi

[Verse 1:]Every step of the way we walk the lineYour days are numbered, so are mineTime is piling' up, we struggle and we scrapeWe're all boxed in, nowhere to escape[Verse 2:]City's just a jungle; more games to playTrapped in the heart of it, trying' to get awayI was raised in the country, I been working' in the townI been in trouble ever since I set my suitcase down[Verse 3:]Got nothing' for you, I had nothing' beforeDon't even have anything for myself anymoreSky full of fire, pain pouring' downNothing you can sell me, I'll see you around[Verse 4:]All my powers of expression and thoughts so sublimeCould never do you justice in reason or rhymeOnly one thing I did wrongStayed in Mississippi a day too long[Verse 5:]Well, the devil's in the alley, mule's in the stallSay anything you wanna, I have heard it allI was thinking' 'bout the things that Rosie saidI was dreaming I was sleeping' in Rosie's bed[Verse 6:]Walking through the leaves, falling from the treesFeeling like a stranger nobody seesSo many things that we never will undoI know you're sorry, I'm sorry too

[Verse 7:]Some people will offer you their hand and some won'tLast night I knew you, tonight I don'tI need something strong to distract my mindI'm gonna look at you 'til my eyes go blind[Verse 8:]Well I got here following' the southern starI crossed that river just to be where you areOnly one thing I did wrongStayed in Mississippi a day too long[Verse 9:]Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking' fastI'm drowning in the poison, got no future, got no pastBut my heart is not weary, it's light and it's freeI've got nothing but affection for all those who've sailed with me[Verse 10:]Everybody moving if they ain't already thereEverybody got to move somewhereStick with me baby, stick with me anyhowThings should start to get interesting' right about now[Verse 11:]My clothes are wet, tight on my skinNot as tight as the corner that I painted myself inI know that fortune is waiting' to be kindSo give me your hand and say you'll be mine[Verse 12:]Well, the emptiness is endless, cold as the clayYou can always come back, but you can't come back all the wayOnly one thing I did wrongStayed in Mississippi a day too long
