Painting a vivid and detailed picture with this one Charles! I don't know much about Mississippi, but I feel like I've been there now.

In the first verse, where you start with 'We’re livin’ in small town Mississippi' that made me think it was about a family until you get to 'Smooching ‘neath the old wood bridge' at which point I had to undo my prev interpretation. You might clarify that right away if you changed line 2 along the lines of:
My darling and I roaming round like Gypsies

The chorus is my fav part, especially:
Those peach delights, where cotton’s king
Where rich or poor don’t mean a thing
