(Guy Clark)

Meanwhile down on Biel Street
Drinking in a Biel Street bar
There's a fog rolling off the Mississippi
Has anybody seen Arkansas?
And the deckhands from the tollboats
Come ashore wearing Mexican shoes
Oh, they headed strait for Graceland
Was the first thing they wanted to do

Cinco de Mayo in Memphis
Marchetti singing the blues
Southern belles and Senoritas
All sportin' Blue suede shoes

Porkpie hats and sombreros
Hangin on a downtown street
Swingin pool cues at pinatas
Don't that river smell sweet?
And they all come to get'm some Memphis
A little somethin' for their souls
Jumper cables and limos
Hell, they all came to rock and roll

Cinco de Mayo in Memphis
Marchetti singing the blues
Southern belles and Senoritas
All sportin Blue suede shoes

Cinco de Mayo in Memphis
Marchetti singing the blues
Southern belles and Senoritas
All sportin Blue suede shoes
