mississippi girl

Well, it’s a long way from Star, Mississippi
To the big stage I’m singing on tonight
And sometimes the butterflies still get me
When I’m in the spotlight

And some people seem to think that I’ve changed
That I’m different than I was back then
But in my soul, I know that I’m the same way
That I’ve really always been

‘Cause a Mississippi girl don’t change her ways
Just ’cause everybody knows her name
Ain’t big-headed from a little bit of fame

I still like wearing my old ball cap
Ridin’ my kids around piggy back
They may know me all around the world
But, y’all, I’m still a Mississippi girl

Well, I spent a few weeks in California
They put my face on the big movie screen
But that don’t mean I’ve forgotten where I came from
That’s just me chasing dreams

‘Cause a Mississippi girl don’t change her ways
Just ’cause everybody knows her name
Ain’t big-headed from a little bit of fame

I still like wearing my old ball cap
Ridin’ my kids around piggy back
They may know me all around the world
But, y’all, I’m still a Mississippi girl

  1. OH..OUCH.. My stomach is going to be hurting tomorrow. That has to be the funniest/best thing I have seen in years. It’s amazing that she knows all the words. Emma girl, you are the cutest. Please submit to America’s Finniest Homevideos. I think she could win the big prize.

  2. Holy carp! That’s twelve kinds of awesome. I totally bust out laughing every time she started just screaming the “MISSISSIPPI GIRL! MISSISSIPPI GIRL! MISSISSIPPI GIRL!” chorus.

    Loved the Old MacDonald encore number, too.
