lyrics

DOWN MISSISSIPPI WAY

The lord won’t show..and the blind refuse to sign…
The priests don’t know…and the stars refuse to shine..
Days we tried to sell.. but the night won’t buy..
Well the dark won’t tell…and the light will never lie…

We ride, up on the fringe…
(Well) we hide, inside this binge…
Oh baby where the wind blows, Down Mississippi way..
Oh baby where sin goes..too black to find our way..
Oh baby where the skin grows..the blues is all we play…
Baby where the wind blows, Down Mississippi way…

It runs up our arms…and up under our nose…
It's the Voodoo charms..living in the shadows..
Baby we say we will…even when we know that we won’t…
It’s just another cheap thrill…try to fill the world that we haunt…

(And we) We ride, up on the fringe…
Well we hide, inside this binge…
Oh baby where the wind blows, Down Mississippi way..
Oh baby where sin goes..too black to find our way..
Oh baby where the skin grows..the blues is all we play…
Baby where the wind blows, Down Mississippi way…

Your friends won’t show..that this time is yours & mine…
And the end won’t know…baby when we walked the line…
We know this day won’t tell.. and the fright will never die..
And the dark won’t sell…and the light will never buy…
bye...bye...bye...

(And we) We ride, out on the fringe…
Well we hide, inside this binge…
Oh baby where the wind blows, Down Mississippi way..
Oh baby where sin goes..too black to find our way..
Oh baby where the skin grows..the blues is all we play…
Baby where the wind blows, Down Mississippi way…

Show me to the sky baby…
Put me in the sky..baby

Do you think that we should stay, baby..Down Mississippi Way..
Do you think we should stay…Down Mississippi Way…

about

Charles "Chaz" Laughon aka Chaze Lounge Wilmington

I've posted some barely adequate recordings here, many bad writer's renditions, of a few songs I've written in my life. Most of my songs never recorded, likely never will be. No matter, just mutterings to myself. I'm a lyricist who believes that language is a dog chasing it's tail. Didn't immerse into human life as I probably should've, or perhaps I immersed too much. The dark births the light. ... more
