quando madeleine peyroux me apareceu tive, como toda a gente, aquela sensação indefinida de estar a ouvir billie holiday de novo. esta canção é uma cover de um velho azul de bessie smith e fala das águas turvas do delta do mississippi. relembra-me sempre que moramos ao lado de outro quase delta.



Dixie moonlight, Swanee shore

Headed homebound just once more

To my Mississippi delta home



Southland got that grand garden spot

Although you believe or not

I hear those trees a-whispering

"Come on back to me"



Muddy water 'round my feet

Muddy water in the street

No God don't shelter

Down on the delta



Muddy water in my shoes

Reeling and rocking to them lowdown blues

They live in ease and comfort down there

I do declare



Been away a year today

To wander and roam

I don't care it's muddy there

But this is my home



Got my toes turned Dixie way

'Round the delta let me lay

My heart cries out for muddy water



Been away a year today

To wander and roam

I don't care it's muddy there

But this is my home



Got my toes turned Dixie way

'Round the delta let me lay

My heart cries out for muddy water
