Mississippi Queen

This song is by Bachman-Turner Overdrive and appears on the album Live! Live! Live! (1986).

Mississippi Queen
If you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen
She taught me everything

Way down around Vicksburg
Around Louisiana way
Lived a Cajun lady
Aboard the Mississippi Queen

You know, she was a dancer
She moved better on wine
While the rest of them dudes
Were'a gettin' their kicks
Boy, I beg your pardon, I was gettin' mine

Mississippi Queen
If you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen
She taught me everything

This lady she asked me
If I would be her man
You know that I told her
I'd do what I can

To keep her lookin' pretty
Buy her dresses that shine
While the rest of them dudes
Were makin' their bread
Boy I beg your pardon, I was losin' mine

You know, she was a dancer
She moved better on wine
While the rest of them dudes
Were'a gettin' their kicks
Boy I beg your pardon, I was gettin' mine

Whoa, Mississippi Queen
