"That's How I Got to Memphis" as written by and Tom T. Hall....
If you love somebody enough you'll follow wherever they go
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis
If you love somebody enough you'll go where your heart wants to go
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

I know if you'd seen her you'd tell me 'cause you are my friend
I've got to find her and find out the trouble she's in
If you tell me that she's not here I'll follow the trail of her tears
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

She would get mad and she used to say
That she'd come back to Memphis someday
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis
I haven't eaten a bite or slept for three days and nights
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

I've got to find her and tell her that I love her so
I'll never rest 'til I find out why she had to go
Thank you for your precious time, forgive me if I start to cry and
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis

That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis
That's how I got to Memphis
