"Memphis Tennessee" as written by and Harry Belafonte....
I got a new way of spellin' Memphis Tennessee
I got a new way of spellin' Memphis Tennessee
I got a new way of spellin' Memphis Tennessee
With a blues with a tears with a double 'S' and a double 'E'
When I got up this morning Blues was walkin' 'round my bed
When I got up this morning blues was walkin' 'round my bed
When I got up this morning blues was walkin' 'round my bed
When I go to eat my breakfast blues was al l in my head
I had a woman she cried over me
I had a woman she cried over me
I had a woman she cried over me
There's a whole heap of crocodile tears
Down in Memphis Tennessee

Down in the valley, valley so low
Down in the valley, valley so low
Down in the valley, valley so low
Hear that lonesome evenin' train's
Lonesome whistle blow

Well bye, bye, people bye bye
I wanna go, wanna go away from here
People bye, bye, yes people bye bye
If anybody hear my plea
Please bail me out of Memphis Tennessee
