Bon Jovi – Memphis Lives In Me lyrics

There's a town that I call home
Where all the streets are paved with soul
Down on Beale there's a honky-tonk bar
So hear the wail of a blues guitar
Have a beer and drop a dime in the blind man's jar
The blues sing softly in the air like a Sunday morning prayer
Just one more drink and you'll see God everywhere
Like a sad old melody that cheers you up, it sets you free
That's how Memphis lives in me
There comes a time when muddy waters run rough
There comes a point when a man has had enough
Like a friend that always stands by me
Memphis knows me
Never showed me
How did life just had to be
I couldn't even try to run away, say goodbye
Here I was born and here is where I'll die
I'm just a man from Tennessee
I can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives in me
I said I'm just a man from Tennessee
Can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives
All I know is Memphis gives
