If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis
I'll never do nothin' like this
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time

I went down to the corner, I called by buddy Ray
Said it's a bad idea, but let's do it anyway
So we called in sick, and put a twenty in his Cadillac
A hurried note to my baby, I swear I'll be right back

We started headin' south on highway sixty one
Been a long time, since we made this run
They got riverboat gamblin', and tunes along the Mississippi
Now I'm praying to god, lady luck is with me

If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis
I'll never do nothin' like this
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time

Had a little luck, early in the night
I was up a thousand dollars, high as a kite
Then I blew all on one last hand of Texas hold'em

I should have listened to my gut, and it said fold'em

Wasn't keeping track, of just how much I drank
Should have stashed another twenty in Ray's gas tank
Now the needles on empty, I can see it by the light of the moon
And if we make it back to Memphis, we're gonna have to make it on fumes

If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis
I swear I'll never do nothin' like this
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time

If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
If I can make it back to Memphis
I'll never do nothin' like this
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time

If I can make it back to Memphis
I said I'll never do nothin' like this
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
