SHINE LIKE GOLD (MISSISSIPPI GIRLS)

Moonlight and magnolias
Sweet summer in the air
That southern drawl when they say y’all
And sunbeams in their hair

Hurts a boy to think about
Hurts even worse to live without

Mississippi girls are hard to hold
The blood is hot but the feet are cold
Mississippi girls can’t be told
They’re raised in mud but they shine like gold

Wind in the whippoorwills
Pedestal and all
They can take you oh so high
And laugh when you fall

Biscuits and good gravy baby
Red beans and rice
They sho’ look good they sho’ smell good
They sho’ taste nice

Mississippi girls are never too old
They're never too young and they’re never too bold
Mississippi girls can’t be told
They’re raised in mud but they shine like gold

Mississippi girls they don’t need control
Like those high falootin’ girls from Chicago
Mississippi girls they got soul
A 6-pack in their car and rock ‘n’ roll

I love that durty water
