TAKE ME BACK TO MEMPHIS, song lyrics by Joel Sattler

 

[one two three four!]

I was playing on the corner
in front of a shop in Times Square
I asked myself brother
how in the Hell you get there?
You're a Southern boy and you're wasting your youth
you just don't belong here and that's the God's truth
Take me back to Memphis
I gotta get back to my roots

Take me back to Memphis
oh why on earth did I roam?
Take me back to Memphis
I don't wanna die here alone
I woulda stayed there if I only had known
I don't wanna freeze here, I'm cold to the bone
Take me back to Memphis
I gotta get back to my home 

 

Too much snow!

got to go!

Take me back to Memphis
I finally figured it out
Take me back to Memphis

I should not have been full of doubt
I'm tired of working here, living hand to my mouth
no need to show me how because I know the whole route
Take me back to Memphis
the friendliest town in the South

 

Hold the bus!

Wait for us!

Too much snow!

Got to go!

 

Take me back to Memphis
I finally figured it out
Take me back to Memphis

I should not have been full of doubt
I'm tired of working here, living hand to my mouth
no need to show me how because I know the whole route
Take me back to Memphis
the friendliest town in the South

 

Now I’m on my way,

it’s the happiest day of my life

And when I get back

I’m gonna ask her to be my wife

I’ll find a stage to play and I’ll jam all night long

It may not be right but it couldn’t be wrong

Take me back to Memphis

Back to the place I belong

 

Take me back to Memphis

Back to the place I belong

 

Take me back to Memphis

Back to the place I belong
