Conway Twitty And Loretta Lynn – Louisiana Woman , Mississippi Man Lyrics

[Conway Twitty:]
Hey, Louisiana woman
[Loretta Lynn:]
Mississippi man
[Both:]
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can’t keep us apart
[Conway Twitty:]
There’s too much love in this Mississippi heart
[Loretta Lynn:]
Too much love in this Louisiana heart

[Conway Twitty:]
See the alligators all a waitin’ nearby
Sooner or later, they know I’m gonna try
When she waved from the bank
Don’t you know I know
It’s a-goodbye fishin’ line, see you while I go
With a Louisiana woman waitin’ on the other side
The Mississippi River don’t look so wide

[Conway Twitty:]
Louisiana woman
[Loretta Lynn:]
Mississippi man
[Both:]
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can’t keep us apart
[Conway Twitty:]
There’s too much love in this Mississippi heart
[Loretta Lynn:]
Too much love in this Louisiana heart

[Loretta Lynn:]
Well, I thought I’d been loved, but I never had
‘Til I was wrapped in the arms of a Mississippi man
When he holds me close, it feels almost
Like another hurricane just ripped the coast
If he can’t come to me, I’m gonna go to him
That Mississippi River, Lord, I’m gonna swim

[Conway Twitty:]
Hey, Louisiana woman
[Loretta Lynn:]
Mississippi man
[Both:]
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can’t keep us apart
[Conway Twitty:]
There’s too much love in this Mississippi heart
[Loretta Lynn:]
Too much love in this Louisiana heart

[Conway Twitty:]
Well, Mississippi River, Lord, it’s one mile wide
And I’m gotta get me to the other side
[Loretta Lynn:]
Mississippi man, I’m a-losin’ my mind
Gotta have your lovin’ one more time
[Conway Twitty:]
I’m gonna jump in the river and here I go
Too bad, alligator, you swim too slow

[Conway Twitty:]
Hey, Louisiana woman
[Loretta Lynn:]
Mississippi man
[Both:]
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can’t keep us apart
[Conway Twitty:]
There’s too much love in this Mississippi heart
[Loretta Lynn:]
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
[Conway Twitty:]
There’s too much love in this Mississippi heart
[Loretta Lynn:]
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
[Conway Twitty:]
Hey, there’s too much love in this Mississippi heart
[Loretta Lynn:]
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
[Conway Twitty:]
There’s too much love in this Mississippi heart
[Loretta Lynn:]
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
[Conway Twitty:]
Hey
