Memphis Lives in Me

There's a town that I call home
Where all the streets are paved with soul.
Down on Beale, there's a honkey-tonk bar,
Hear the wail of a blues guitar,
Have a beer and drop a dime
In a blindman's jar.
The blues sing softly in the air,
Like a Sunday morning prayer-
Just one more drink and you'll see God everywhere.
Like a sad old melody-
Tears you up but sets you free-
That's how Memphis lives in me.
There comes a time when muddy waters run rough.
There comes a point when a man has had enough.
Like a friend who always stands by me,
Memphis knows me, Memphis shows me
How this life just has to be.
I couldn't even try to run away, say goodbye.
Here I was born, and here is where I'll die.
Just a man from Tennessee can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives in me.
Whoa!
There comes a time when muddy waters run rough.
There comes a point when a man has had enough.
Like a friend who always stands by me,
Memphis knows me, Memphis shows me
How this life just has to be
I couldn't even try to run away, say goodbye
Here I was born and here is where I'll die!
Just a man from Tennessee, can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives, all I know is Memphis gives,
All I know is Memphis lives in me!
