Sheet Music | MIDI
States may sing their songs of praise
With waving flags and hip-hoo-rays,
Let cymbals crash and let bells ring
Cause here's one song I'm proud to sing.
Go, Mississippi, keep rolling along,
Go, Mississippi, you cannot go wrong,
Go, Mississippi, we're singing your song,
Go, Mississippi, you're on the right track,
Go, Mississippi, and this is a fact,
Go, Mississippi, you'll never look back,
Go, Mississippi, straight down the line,
Go, Mississippi, ev'rything's fine,
Go, MIssissippi, it's your state and mine,
Go, Mississippi, continue to roll,
Go, Mississippi, the top is the goal,
Go, Mississippi, you'll have and you'll hold,
Go, Mississippi, get up and go,
Go, Mississippi, let the world know,
That our Mississippi is leading the show,

They selected through an advisory committee a song entitled, "Go, Mississippi"by Houston Davis. On May 17, 1962, the Mississippi Legislature officially designated "Go, Mississippi" as the official song of the State of Mississippi. General Laws of Mississippi of 1962, Chapter 654.
Senator Billy Hewes III, 49th District, introduced Senate Bill 2960 proposing adoption of Mississippi by Edwin Owen Miller as the official state song of Mississippi repealing Chapter 654, General Laws which designated the song Go, Mississippi by Houston Davis as the official state song in 1962.
