"Queen Of Memphis" as written by David Lowell Gibson and Kathy Louvin....
I hitchhiked up to Memphis, a young boy in my prime
I thought that big old city would ease my Georgia mind
After just one hour, I met a Southern girl
She said they call me the Queen of Memphis
And then she took me around the world

I saw stars dancing on the water
I heard Elvis singing Blue Suede Shoes
That old muddy river was my witness
The night I fell in love with the queen of Memphis
I woke up the next morning a prisoner of her charms
She showed me things I'd never seen back there on that farm
She set my soul on fire, she completed all my dreams
A boy became a man that night in the arms of the Memphis Queen


Just like that old man river she keeps rolling through my mind
And you know I won't forget her 'cause she was one of a kind

    General CommentI first heard this song as an innocent pre-teen living. I believe this act was on the first I had ever seen in concert. At that age, you never expected a country song to be dirty, let alone what it really implied. Now, more than one decade has passed, and I understand the meaning. It's about an innocent guy who meets a hooker and immediately falls in love. What you don't hear is how she cleaned him out and how he ended up alone or taking a dead end job only until he had enough to make the long, lonely bus trip home. After one decade, it's amazing what a mind can come up with. It's a great song and that's why it had an effect on me.
