The Hold Steady – Sequestered In Memphis lyrics

It started when we were dancin'
It got heavy when we got to the bathroom.
We didn't go back to her place,
We went to some place where she cat-sits.
She said, "I know I look tired, but everything's fried, here in Memphis."

Man, they want to know exactly which bathroom...
Dude, does it make any difference? It can't be important...

Yeah, sure, I'll tell my story, again...

In bar-light, she looked all right;
In daylight, she looked desperate
That's all right, I was desperate, too
I'm getting pretty sick of this interview.
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

I think she drove a new Mustang
I guess it might be a rental
I remember she had satellite radio
I guess she seemed a bit nervous,
Do you think I'm that stupid? Well, what the hell?

I'll tell the story, again...

In bar-light, she looked all right;
In daylight, she looked desperate
That's all right, I was desperate, too
I'm getting pretty sick of this interview
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
