I didn't bring any blue suede shoes, but it had
nothing to do with Elvis anyway
We were down at the bluebird, and the songs were
through, and neither of us had ever been to Memphis
So we left on a dare in the middle of the night, we
drove out into the stormy moonlight
In a rental car with unlimited miles
The radio played songs about busy men, and we both
That first you wish, and then you dream, and then you
turn the ignition
And you're on your way

We took a road called music highway, but there were
times when it was just the rain
Or just my heartbeat when you held my hand, but it was
all too much, so we turned the radio on again
And we left on a dare in the middle of the night, we
made our way through the stormy moonlight,
And we went half a mile past the boundary of "just
It all went by in just a blur and through it all, you
can wish, or you can dream, but just keep floorin' the
And you're on your way

We saw a bridge out in the distance, and it was lit up
like a carnival
And it crossed the Mississippi before we knew what
We never knew that we'd hit Arkansas, we laughed out
in the rain
But we had to get back to Nashville in time to catch
our plane

It says now or never in the Elvis song, but just this
once I hope he's wrong
'Cause there was no time left to kill,
And there's that kiss we didn't steal
But we left on a dare in the middle of the night, I'll
always remember that stormy moonlight
In all the times when I will think of you
'Cause I know Memphis taught you well, and I know that
first you'll wish and then you'll dream and then
you'll catch a plane
And you're on your way
