    Midnight In Memphis

    It's midnight in Memphis
    and all the boys are out tonight.
    Oh, midnight in Memphis,
    but my true love is not in sight.
    The neon's glowing,
    but I just don't see the light.

    I'm following my footsteps
    trying to find myself a friend.
    Oh, baby! Following my footsteps
    trying to see where they might end.
    I'm tryin' to break these blues,
    but I can't even get them to bend.

    Oh, midnight in Memphis.
    Well, ya take me away.
    Midnight in Memphis.
    It's a long, long time
    before the day.

    Runnin' down on Beale Street.
    Can you hear that engine roar?
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    Runnin' down on Beale Street.
    There's a girl in every door.
    Yeah, it don't matter what you got,
    they're asking me for more.
    Play it for me one time, boys.

    I heard the river risin',
    risin' up over my head.
    Yeah, heard the river risin',
    and this is what it said:
    "I don't need no live ones;
    I just take care of the dead."

    Oh, midnight in Memphis.
    Take me, take me away.
    Midnight in Memphis.
    It's a long, long time
    before the day.

    Whoa, oh, oh, oh, midnight in Memphis.
    Midnight in Memphis.
    Midnight in Memphis.
    It's a long, long time
    before the day,
    before the day.
