Hoyt Axton – Midnight In Memphis lyrics

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

Chorus:
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
