Go, Mississippi (sometimes called Go Mis-sis-sip-pi) is the state song of Mississippi since May 17, 1962. It was written and composed by William Houston Davis (1914–1987), and copyrighted in 1962. In the same year, the copyright was assigned to Jackson Board of Realtors, who recommended it to the legislature. It was adopted by House Concurrent Resolution 67 during the 1962 Regular Session as General Laws of Mississippi of 1962, Chapter 654.
In 2000, Mississippi Senator William Gardner Hewes introduced Senate Bill 2960 to replace the state song with "Mississippi" by Edward Owen Miller, however the bill died in committee.
