Misfit Blues - Lyrics

Album: Mark Searcy, Grapetown Rail, 2017    
Written by: Mark Searcy Middleton

Well I left, said "Goodbye", well I don't remember why
It musta been your cornbread pan when ya, hit me in my head

Then you took all my money, Lord have mercy what a sin
Then you locked me in the cellar and ya  run off with my best friend

You can tell me how you love me, promise me the moon and stars above
But baby all your actions speak most louder than words
You can buy me a diamond ring or a gold plated Cadillac
But baby don't wait around, cause I aint' comin' back

Oh Mississippi, oh dear river, you so long, deep and wide
But I love my baby better when she's on the other side

You better watch your moonshine, when you pass it around
It might just be your good gal's new friend, tryin' to take you down

You can tell me how you love me, promise me the moon and stars above 
But baby all your actions speak most louder than words
You can buy me a diamond ring or a gold plated Cadillac 
But baby don't wait around, cause I aint' comin' back

So listen, my dear brother, you better plant your corn in a row
Your gonna wake up one mornin' and'a reap what you sow, yeah
