I'm going to Memphis on a midnight train
I'm tired of all this Mississippi rain
That delta lady broke my heart and soul
I got the blues, I can't stay, I gotta go

But when the morning comes
She's gonna wonder where he good man has gone
When the morning comes
She's gonna know I was the one

Ain't nothin' darker than a Mississippi night
Especially when your baby ain't been treatin' you right
The river keeps rollin' back down to the sea
I'm gonna lose these Mississippi blues in Tennessee

But when the morning comes
She's gonna wonder where he good man has gone
When the morning comes
She's gonna know I was the one

But when the morning comes
She's gonna wonder where he good man has gone
When the morning comes
She's gonna know I was the one

I'm going to Memphis on a midnight train
I'm tired of all this Mississippi rain
