I'd Jump The Mississippi

This song is by George Jones & Melba Montgomery and appears on the album Bluegrass Hootenanny (1964).

I been lonely much too long
I'd give a Yankee dime if you come back home
Honey, won't you let me hold you tight?
Tears keep a fallin' and my eyes are blurred
If I had the wings of a pretty little bird
I would fly right to your arms tonight

I'd jump the Mississippi deep and wide
If you was a-waitin' on the other side
Honey, just to hug and hold you tight
I'd jump across and never get wet
Right there by your side I'd set
Yes indeed, everything would be alright

If you would come back home to
Me make me happy like I used to be
I'd start and meet you halfway
I'd leave here and never look back
I'd run a mile in a minute flat
To get to you before the end of day

I'd jump the Mississippi deep and wide
If you was a-waitin' on the other side
Honey, just to hug and hold you tight
I'd jump across and never get wet
Right there by your side I'd set
Yes indeed, everything would be alright

I'd jump the Mississippi deep and wide
If you was a-waitin' on the other side
Honey, just to hug and hold you tight
I'd jump across and never get wet
Right there by your side I'd set
Yes indeed, everything would be alright
