Memphis - Memphis Lives In Me Lyrics

Original Broadway production (2010)
Memphis the musical - Memphis Lives In Me Lyrics


"Memphis Lives In Me" is a song from Memphis the musical performed by Huey And Company.

There's a town that I call home
Where all the streets are paved with soul
Down on Beale there's a honky-tonk bar
Hear the wail of a blues guitar
Have a beer drop a time in the blind
man's jar

The blues sing softly in the air
Like a Sunday Morning Prayer
Just one more drink and you\'ll see God
everywhere
Like a sad, old melody
That tears you up, but sets you free
That's How Memphis Lives In Me

There comes a time when muddy waters run rough
There comes a point when a man has had enough
Like a friend who always stands by me, Yeah
Memphis Knows Me
Memphis Shows Me
How this life just has to be

I couldn't even try to run away say goodbye
Here I was born and here is where I'll die
I'm just a man from Tennessee
I can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis Lives In Me

Woah Woah hooooo hooooooooo

There comes a time when muddy waters run rough
There comes a point when a man has had enough
Like a friend who always stands by me
Memphis Knows Me
Memphis Shows Me
How this life just has to be

I couldn't even try to run away say goodbye
Here I was born and here is where I'll die
I'm just a man from Tennessee
Can't be what I can be
All I Know is Memphis Lives
All I Know is Memphis Gives
All I Know is Memphis Lives
In Me
