Well, I've never been to Memphis
But I kind of like the drawl
I'd drink with any man
Who knows a lonesome desert crawl

I know some words
But I don't know them all
I like my baby
Stupid poetry and all

I'm 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar

I rode out of suburbia at half past 24
I had a couple beers, I had a couple more

I lost my way
Someone nailed me to the wall
I'm legless now
I'm learning how to crawl

I'm 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar

I danced with blind republicans
I mowed the white house lawn
I drank like Frank Sinatra
Till the cops showed up at dawn
I ruled the world
Yeah, I was feelin' pretty good

I scored some points when noone thought I would

But now I'm 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar

Well, I've never been to Memphis
Guess I'll never get there now
I'll look just like a ghost when I'm passin through your town
But I've ran with kings
And I've slummed with movie stars

Now I'm just a phantom on the tar

Yeah, I'm 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar

10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar (2x)
