Yesterday calls and my heart goes back
Down to Mississippi by a railroad track
Where the corn and the taters and the cotton grows
On Jubilee Road

Back folks used to call me cotton top
Catching them catfish skippin those rocks
Lord l'd trade everything I got
for Jubilee Road

Jubilee Road I can hear you calling
Jubilee Road I can hear you talking
Mississippi dream you got me walking
on Jubilee Road

Yesterday's gone don't you understand
Cotton top's grown to be a man
Big city sidewalks cover the sand
on Jubilee Road

Walking down the street to my fishing hole
Hot sand poppin up between my toes
Heaven was a place I used to know
as Jubilee Road

Grapevine swinging in the summertime
Laughing and singing with friends of mine
Life was good there all the time
on Jubilee Road


There aint no cotton and there aint no corn
Can't find the place where I was born
Everyone's gone that I used to know
on Jubilee Road

Working like a fool for a dollar bill
Wanna go home but I never will
But in my mind I live there still
On Jubilee Road
