Lyrics: 

Mississippi Delta Queen

I see the queen a-comin’, rollin’ round the river bend
Her pretty shape’s a-growin’, getting’ closer to be seen
That boat’s a-comin’ to take me down to old New Orleans
My heart’s a-hummin’ for the Mississippi Delta Queen

Mississippi Delta Queen rollin’ along
Old steam pipe calliope whistlin’ a song
Leave all my cares behind up the river stream
Carry me home Mississippi River Queen

Catfish am a-jumpin’ behind her big ol paddle wheel
My mind is addled when I feel that gulf coast southern stream
Smoke stack showin’ her prime will get her down the line on time
There ain’t no slowin’ that ol Mississippi Delta Queen

Mississippi Delta Queen rollin’ along
Old steam pipe calliope whistlin’ a song
Leave all my cares behind up the river stream
Carry me home Mississippi River Queen

Magnolia trees, honey suckle vines growin’ for me
Round the old homestead that’s been callin’ for so long to me
Gotta get back to New Orleans and my Cajun routine
Got my road sack on the Mississippi Delta Queen

Mississippi Delta Queen rollin’ along
Old steam pipe calliope whistlin’ a song
Leave all my cares behind up the river stream
Carry me home Mississippi River Queen

I got first verse melody. I really like it, but I don't know that I'd remember it. Again, a song I'd attempt if I had time and could play an instrument. I like these nostalgic type writes.

This lyric is loaded with lots of good potential music - I think so close to the end now, I will put it on my save list here.

I’ll guess you write year long non-stop? Do you list them somewhere or this is it and that’s that till next year?
