Story

 

a song about a river

a town

a girl

a fish

what is this song about

 

 

Lyrics

sitting on the banks of the mississippi river

waiting on the promise of the saints to deliver

deliver me the kingdom

kingdom come

oh my soul it's got a hold on me

mississippi river going to carry me

to the kingdom

kingdom come

 

rambling around new orleans' french quarter

wondering if i'll ever get myself across the border

the border to the kingdom

kingdom come

oh my soul it's got a hold on me

new orleans till the morning going to carry me

to the kingdom

kingdom come

 

louisiana hannah give me loving so delicious

never met a woman with such goodness

and so gracious

goodness gracious like the kingdom

kingdom come

oh my soul she's got a hold on me

louisiana hannah going to carry me

to the kingdom

kingdom come

 

down in the delta there's a catfish in the river

if i eat that catfish i'll be living here forever

forever till the kingdom

kingdom come

oh my soul it's got a hold on me

catfish from the delta going to carry me

to the kingdom

kingdom come

 

i'm still sitting on the banks of the mississippi river

waiting on the promise of the saints to deliver

deliver me the kingdom

kingdom come

oh my soul it's got a hold on me

mississippi river going to carry me

to the kingdom

kingdom come

oh my soul it's got a hold on me

mississippi river going to carry me

to the kingdom

kingdom come
