Can’t believe I'm back here again
Feels like a lifetime and a thousand miles since then
It was just one summer night but the kind of night you never can forget
And I'm here with my baby and were driving downtown
Thinks I’ve never been here, wants to show me around

But he don't know nothing about Memphis
How could he ever know, this was our town
All he sees is that big old muddy river and the ghost of Elvis
But he don't know nothing about Memphis

Don't want to look him in the eye
Scared he might see what I remember of that night
We were dancing on the water
We were singing “hallelujah” to the stars
And I know it would hurt him, if he could see my past
He thinks he’s the only one who’s touched me like that

But he don't know nothing about Memphis
How could he ever know this was our town
All he sees is that big old muddy river and the ghost of Elvis
But he don't know nothing about Memphis

Sweet sweet Memphis…all the good times we had
Ain’t no harm in looking back no no no

He don't know nothing about Memphis
How could he ever know this was our town
All he sees is that mighty Mississippi and the ghost of Elvis
But he don't know nothing about Memphis
Sweet sweet Memphis
