Johnny Reid - Memphis Lyrics




Oh yeah

You and me man
We'd come running home from school
Drop the needle on my mama's vinyl
We'd sing along with that felt of Elvis on the wall
We had our own old school soul revival

Yeah I'll be [?]
And you be [?]
Across that kitchen floor we go
Socks sliding
Somewhere along the way
We lost track of time yeah
You went your way
And I went mine

But I never got to Memphis
Oh I never got to see Memphis with you
No I never got to walk down
Or lest to that dusty Dixie blues
No I never got to [?] playing Lucy
Hiding at that Mississippi river
No I never got to Memphis
No I never got to see Memphis with you

You heard you're a happy
With a family of your own
Living just outside of Liverpool, see
Sometimes I wonder if you ever think
About all those crazy yesterday
Where have the years gone my friend

Well I guess we'll never know
'Cause one thing I know for sure
If dreams are made for dreamers
And music's for believe
[?] knows
I'm still pride of the blues
For the one thing, for the one thing
That I didn't get to do

Oh I never got to Memphis
No I never got to see Memphis with you
Oh I never got to walk down
Or lest to that dusty Dixie blues, no
No I never got to [?] playing Lucy
Hiding at that Mississippi river
Oh I never got to Memphis
No I never got to see Memphis with you

I know [?] good to meet, it's true
But I know, there's just one thing
That keeps leaving me blue, yeah, yeah

No I never got to [?] playing Lucy
Hiding at that Mississippi river
Oh I never got to Memphis
No I never got to see Memphis with you
