In my home in Shelby County, down there 'n Memphis Tennessee
She's a hundred pound of sugar, a-waiting there for me
The one I picked from love's boat kept to raise our fam'ly tree
In my home in Shelby County, down there 'n Memphis Tennessee

I love it in the summertime, I love it in the spring
I love it in the wintertime, or what the seasons bring
In my home in Shelby County, we're as happy as can be
Honeysuckle 'round the door, magnolia trees
Flowers blooming ev'rywhere, sway gently in the breeze
'Round my home in Shelby County, down there 'n Memphis Tennessee

-Solo-

In my home in Shelby County, down there 'n Memphis Tennessee
She's a hundred pound of sugar, a-waiting there for me
The one I picked from love's boat kept to raise our fam'ly tree
In my home in Shelby County, down there 'n Memphis Tennessee

I love it in the summertime, I love it in the spring
I love it in the wintertime, or what the seasons bring
In my home in Shelby County, we're as happy as can be
Honeysuckle 'round the door, magnolia trees
Flowers blooming ev'rywhere, sway gently in the breeze
'Round my home in Shelby County, down there 'n Memphis Tennessee
