"Memphis Lives In Me" as written by and David Bryan Joe Dipietro....
There's a town that I call home
Where all the streets are paved with soul
Down on Beale there's a honky-tonk bar
So hear the wail of a blues guitar
Have a beer and drop a dime in the blind man's jar

The blues sing softly in the air like a Sunday morning prayer
Just one more drink and you'll see God everywhere
Like a sad old melody that cheers you up, it sets you free
That's how Memphis lives in me

There comes a time when muddy waters run rough
There comes a point when a man has had enough
Like a friend who always stands by me
Memphis knows me
Memphis shows me
How did life just had to be

I couldn't even try to run away, say goodbye
Here I was born and here is where I'll die
I'm just a man from Tennessee
I can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives in me

I said I'm just a man from Tennessee
Can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives
All I know is Memphis gives
All I know is Memphis lives in me
