Lyrics

Working on a barge down in New Orleans Spending all money on Cajun queens Working from the morning Till the end of day And that's when I go out to play Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line They pay me ten dollars and I don't save a dime But I always seem to make enough to see me through And I'll bet you five dollars I'm as happy as you (Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line) (Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line) I've got a lot of friends down in New Orleans Working on the docks loading coffee beans Hard working people who will lend you a hand They'll help you any way they can My daddy was a Mississippi river man My mama was a Cajun from the heart of the land They taught me how to love the Mississippi mud Now there's Mississippi water flowing in my blood

(Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line) (Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line) I love the Mississippi like it was my own As long as I remember, it's been my home I know it's kinda muddy but it sure looks fine When you're riding on the Muddy Mississippi Line (Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line) (Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line) (Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line) (Working on the Muddy Mississippi Line)....
