Up In Mississippi Tonight
Tom Petty
This is take number one...

Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
With a man she hardly knows
Sally's wearing brand new clothes
Opportunity don't knock twice
So Sally said bye bye
I hope she is alright

Up in Mississippi tonight

Sally left before the sun could rise
When the city man came to town
She turned her his around
It was love with just one look
When she saw the size of his pocket book
Oh, Sally's doin' fine

Up in Mississippi tonight

But there's a mountain boy
Who's gonna remember you
Sally is one old girl
He hates to lose
But she did what she had to do
You know I'm happy for you
But sometimes please think of me
Up by the river Biluxi

Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
Stayin' in a big hotel
Rich man paying the bill
Drivin' a brand new car
Drinkin' in fancy bars
Oh, Sally's havin' a time

She's up in Mississippi tonight

Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
Sally's up in Mississippi tonight
