Poor old man came from Mississippi
Nothin’ on his mind but a cheap fifth of whiskey
Playin’ his guitar, got into the city
Workin’ on the streets just to make a living
Well, he could sing those coffee house blues

Mississippi John made it look so easy
Cigarette behind his ear, his eye are lookin’ misty
Really let go when the bottle’s half empty
Singing it loud, his voice is kinda gritty
He knows he’s got nothin’ to prove

He spends his time playin’ in the city
Won’t you lay your money down
Watchful eyes for someone who will listen
Won’t you lay your money down

Everybody said he’d be better off leaving
And he knew in his heart that he better start believing
Better use the talent that the good lord gave him
To get out of this place he don’t need a good reason
He’s giving heart and soul to you

He spends his time playin’ in the city
Won’t you lay your money down
Watchful eyes for someone who will listen
Won’t you lay your money down

Look downtown see the man on the corner
Working so hard just get a dollar
People walk my want to call him a beggar
Don’t want too much he’s just taking what they offer
Well, he’s playing each note for you

Well, he spends his time playin’ in the city
Won’t you lay your money down
Watchful eyes for someone who will listen
Won’t you lay your money down
