Mind on Mississippi

Mind on Mississippi Can’t say I’m anxious can’t say I’m worriedĀ  Can’t say nothing sweet can’t say something meanĀ  So burdened I feel buriedĀ  When I get there will things changeĀ  Will you changeĀ Ā  we still speakĀ  When I get home will it work outĀ  Will I workout will I still sleepĀ  Will I eat way too much to cover unhappiness Will the kids respect meĀ  Will they add a sir after yesĀ  Will we find a new carĀ  Have we paid taxes on this new address Getting home supposed to be a reliefĀ  What if it add stress What if we argue, what if I’m mean What if we can’t adjust what’ll it seemĀ  Like to a little girl who’s barely old enough for pigtailsĀ  Will we show love will she grow up and feel compelled To callĀ  text write and visit Or will she avoid me just like I did itĀ  With my own momĀ  Will she call me dad in her own timeĀ  Will she realize I did this for herĀ  Or appreciate that I was just blurĀ  A distant memory instead of the father figure I was meant to beĀ  Will she even remember meĀ  Where will I work what will I doĀ  will I survive ok just going to school What do I say to this kids that’s not my age That don’t know my life or why I’m this wayĀ  Or why I’m so old how I haven’t finished my degree yet Tell em Im sticking to the scriptĀ  when they don’t knowĀ  What they want to be yet I never been a loser and I dnt plan to startĀ  Just wait and hang on and see what I do with this
