Got a big leather suitcase, all I own's inside
Seems I've been walkin' for days, can't even bum a ride
Try steppin' to a tune, with the rhythm of a walkin' man
Mind drifts like a big balloon out of my situation at hand
Ain't it funny how a melody can bring back a memory

Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind
Walkin' down a lonely highway not feelin' alone

Thinkin' back when things went my way and not the road I'm on
Well, I've been down a time or two, but it never lasted long
I can always make it through on a wing and a prayer and a song
Ain't it funny how a melody can bring back a memory

Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind
It can make a right from a wrong, it can make you fall in love
It can get you singin' along
Chase the clouds away and make the sun shine above

A melody can bring back a memory
Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind
A melody can bring back a memory
Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind

    General Commentdarn straight on the harmonica, beautiful. when i hear this song i can imagine myself back when i was seven or so hearing it on the radio of my mom's car. and i can almost look thru my childs eyes and hear thru those ears. its wild. and thats kinda what i think the lyrics mean. its every effect a song, a melody can have on someones mind. make you fall in love, make the sun shine, make you happy.
