"Midnight In Memphis" as written by and Tony Johnson....
It's midnight in Memphis
And all the boys are out tonight.
Oh, midnight in Memphis,
But my true love is not in sight.
The neon's glowing,
But I just don't see the light.

I'm following my footsteps
Trying to find myself a friend.
Oh, baby! Following my footsteps
Trying to see where they might end.
I'm tryin' to break these blues,
But I can't even get them to bend.

Oh, midnight in Memphis.
Well, ya take me away.
Midnight in Memphis.
It's a long, long time
Before the day.

Runnin' down on Beale Street.
Can you hear that engine roar?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Runnin' down on Beale Street.
There's a girl in every door.
Yeah, it don't matter what you got,
They're asking me for more.
Play it for me one time, boys.

I heard the river risin',
Risin' up over my head.
Yeah, heard the river risin',
And this is what it said:
"I don't need no live ones;
I just take care of the dead."

Oh, midnight in Memphis.
Take me, take me away.
Midnight in Memphis.
It's a long, long time
Before the day.

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, midnight in Memphis.
Midnight in Memphis.
Midnight in Memphis.
It's a long, long time
Before the day,
Before the day.
