Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Up in mississippi  Tom Petty

D6    base-fret 1 fret[xx0202]

I'm not born in America, so excuse me if the text is wrong.  
When you hear the song, you will know how to play it.

[D Dsus2 D6 D Dsus2] = [D]

[D]Sally's up in Mississippi tonight.
With a [G]man she [G/#F]hardly [Em]knows.
Sally's wearing brand new clothes.
(uppor[G]tunity [G/#F]don't come [Em]twice.)?
so Sally said bye-bye.
[A]hope she is all right, up in Mississippi tonight.
[D Dsus2 D6 D Dsus2]

Sally lived before the sun could rise.
(When a cityman came to town.)?
She turn his head around.
it was love whit just one look,
when she saw the size of his pocket-book.
Sally's doing fine, she's up in Mississippi tonight.
[D Dsus2 D6 D Dsus2]

But there's a [Bm]mountain boy how's 
[Em]gonna remember [A]you.
[Bm]Sally's one [Em]girl he hate's to [A]loose.
But she [C]did what she had to do.
You [G]know I'm happy for you,
but [Em]sometimes please think of me ( [A]           )?

Sally's up in Mississippi tonight.
Staying in a big hotel.
Rich man pays the bill.
Driving a brand new car.
Drinking in fancy bar's.
Sally's having a time, she's up in Mississippi tonight.

Sally's up in Mississippi tonight.
