Bob Forrest – Memphis lyrics

If I can just make it down to Memphis all my troubles would go away
If I can get down to Memphis maybe I'll be ok
They got a city that's just waiting to let me open up and breath
If I can get down to Memphis where they've got a place for me

Cause that's where people go you know when they got nothing left to
Lose yeah
That's where you end up down there when you've got nothing better to
Do
If I could just make it down to Memphis maybe I could pull through
Lord
If I can just make it down to Memphis maybe I could pull through

Well Elvis ah Elvis never meant a fucking thing to me
If I can get down to Memphis I'll be the king
They got a river runs right through there well maybe I'll just take a
Swim
If I can get down to Memphis and start all over again

Maybe I could pull through
Maybe I could pull through
Maybe I could change
Maybe I could (change)

You don't love me (I hate everything*) I can't stop drinking I'm almost
50 years old But If I could make it down to Memphis well God who
Knows
And so there's babies in Africa with their bellies all swolled up
Well doesn't it make you ashamed of all of us

Well Memphis is where you go you know when you got nothing left to
Lose yeah That's where you end up down there when you've got nothing
Better to do
If I could just make it down to Memphis maybe I could pull through
Lord
If I could just make it down to Memphis maybe I could pull through
