Lyrics

a song about a river
a town
a girl
a fish
what is this song about

kingdom come

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
