Cairo (rhymes with “narrow”) is the southernmost city in Illinois (USA). It lies on the junction of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers.

 

Lyrics

Goin’ down to Cairo, Goodbye and a goodbye
Goin’ down to Cairo, Goodbye Liza Jane.

Mop that deck and make it shine (echo)
Mop that deck and make it shine (echo)
