....Mississippi; home of the Blues, in the Delta land,
where cotton is king, and the music has a hand;
this is the place where the Blues was born,
played by guitar, or done with a horn.

Sam Cooke, Muddy Waters, this is their hometown,
and Tennessee Williams too, carries this crown,
and this is home to the "Depot" which is the site,
of African American's great Northern flight.
