Song: Mississippi wheel tell me how do you feel today? Slipping down the river and running on it a-okay. Now when the sun is high on a glistening day, do you listen to the birds and the bees at play? Mississippi wheel tell me how do you feel today? Mississippi wheel tell me how does it feel to know that you’ve been the home of many romantic poems, with the elegant ladies who were courted by men; bouquet flowers and the fountain pens; gamblers and ramblers with money to spend, tell me how does it feel to know that the river is home, you are the home of the carefree and the rambling soul? Carefree and the rambling soul.
