I feel as lonely
As anybody
Who's cryin' on a Friday night

Once in a while
On my radio dial
I accidentally get it right

I'm thinkin' I might be tempted to
Slide on over
Slide on over

I'm thinkin' I need a little somethin' to
Tide me over
Tide me over
Till Memphis

You know that lonesome
Whippoorwill?
I know a girl who is bluer still

Is that a jukebox altar call
Or just a soft smoky place to fall?

I'm thinkin' I might be tempted to
Slide on over
Slide on over

I'm thinkin' I need a little somethin' to
Tide me over
Tide me over
Till Memphis

Cause the king knows how
To take me all the way
Yeah the king knows how
{the King knows how}
To take me all the way
To Memphis

I feel as lonely
As anybody
Who's cryin' on a Friday night

I'm not laughin'
Because it's funny.
Hank is laughin' 'cause he's always right

I'm thinkin' I might be tempted to
Slide on over
Slide on over

I'm thinkin' I need a little something to
Tide me over
Tide me over

You strike the match boy
But do you know how
To burn it all the way down
To Memphis

'Cause the king knows how
(The King knows how)
To take me all the way...
