It's midnight in Memphis
All the girls are out tonight
It's midnight in Memphis
But my true love is not in sight
Oh, the neon is glowin'
But I just can't see the light

Well I'm followin' my footsteps
Tryin' to find myself a friend
Followin'my footsteps
Just to see where it might end
Oh, I'm tryin' to break these blues
But I can't even get 'em to bend

Midnight in Memphis
Where would you take me away?
Midnight in Memphis
It's a long, long time before day

It's burnin' on Beale Street
Can't you hear the engines roar?
It's burnin' on Beale Street
There's a girl in every door
Girl in every door
It don't matter what you got
They're asking even more

I heard the river risin'
Risin' up over my head
I heard the river risin'
And this is what it said
Said "I don't need no live ones
I just take care of the dead"

Repeat chorus
