Down the Mississippi where the water gets muddy
Forty-four school where the kids don't study
Well they all hang around at the root of Beale Street
Oh that's where they hear that Memhpis Beat
I'm goin' to Memphis where the beat is tough Memphis I can't get enough
It makes you tremble and it makes you weak gets in your blood that Memphis Beat

Whoo they're hitchhikin' here from California ride on a Honda from Arizona
Houston Boston Kansas City New Orleans and a doo wa diddy
Oh I'm goin' to Memphis...
[ piano - guitar ]
Well people come a ridin' a walkin' a swimmin'
Got a little chance at them good lookin' women
Oh they march on down to the foot of Beale Street
Ah then dance all night to that Memphis Beat
Oh I'm goin' to Memphis......
Oh come on now let's go to Memphis
Where the beat is tough I can't get enough
I gotta get back there I gotta get back there
