the state of a state in my mind...
Mighty river running through me,
I see Mississippi in my mind;
Shacks and cities,
Slums and salvation.
In a dusty church I prayed;
Sure Jesus was a breath away.
Saints preserving me,
I walked out into the sun,
Pointed my car back north,
Past dirt roads; misunderstanding
I never knew Mississippi.
