Walked across the room
In a neon light
Dark pair of shades
Blocking out the night
Smoke ring blowing
White Owl Panatella
There wasn't a thing
That man couldn't sell you
He kept a 45 in a Crown Royal bag
Wiped the fingerprints off
Handed me the rag
I'm never going back to Memphis
I'm never going back to Memphis
Little while later
Sirens started screaming
Felt like a nightmare
But you know I wasn't dreaming
Cops walked in
Dog pulling on a chain
Looking for a woman
Ran in from the rain
They sat out front eating fried chicken
While I shivered in a shed
Out behind the kitchen
I'm never going back to Memphis
I'm never going back to Memphis
Don't ask when
'Cause I'm never going back to Memphis again
The river is rising
Sky's getting darker
My mind keeps playing
Some old Junior Parker
Three days waiting
All alone by the tracks
Lying to myself
That man's coming back
Said he'd come around
Unless he was dead
Guess he took another woman
Or a bullet in the head
I'm never going back to Memphis
I'm never going back to Memphis
Don't ask when
'Cause I'm never going back to Memphis again
Never going back
To Memphis again
Too much trouble
You can get in
Never going back
To Memphis again
Never going back
To Memphis again
