Mississippi Flood was performed by Juliette Barnes in the Season Three episode Time Changes Things.

After giving birth, she performs it on the rooftop of Highway 65 in a bid to relaunch her career, amid fears that she will become irrelevant.

It is featured on The Music of Nashville (Season 3, Volume 2).

Lyrics

I've got flowers but there ain't no grave
You're still walkin' 'round but nothing's changed
I've stopped breathin' but I'm still feelin' the pain

Everywhere I go, I hear your name
Want to get out, want to get off of this street, out of this place
You're still breathin' but you're not feelin' the pain
Put out the fire, can't kill the flame

Chorus:
I - I - I - I know I'm free but still
My hands are tied
Behind my back beside the Mississippi flood
This love won't give up
No, it don't run dry
Why-y-y
It's gone, it's gone, but it ain't dead and gone
It's gone, it's gone, but it ain't dead and gone

I'm not twisted, bitter, I'm not mad
I just wish you would get off my map
I've been hidin' but you keep findin' my tracks
Why do you keep on comin' back?

Chorus (2x)
I - I - I - I know I'm free but still
My hands are tied
Behind my back beside the Mississippi flood
This love won't give up
No, it don't run dry
Why-y-y
It's gone, it's gone, but it ain't dead and gone
It's gone, it's gone, but it ain't dead and gone

It's gone, it's gone, but it ain't dead and gone
It's gone, it's gone, but it ain't dead and gone
