I’m goin’ to Memphis (that’s right Lord) yeah (uh huh)

A due took all my money wouldn’t let me see the cards
I owe the boss about a hundred years for sleepin’ in his backyard

Like a bitter weed I’m a bad seed
But when that levee’s thru and I am too
Let the honky tonk roll on come mornin’ I’ll be gone
I’m goin’ to Memphis yeah Memphis

I never been to Chicago but it must be a mighty fine place (that’s right)

Well I brought me a little water in a Mr Prince Albert can
But the bossman caught me drinkin’ it and I believe he broke my hand (hm hm)

They all call me crazy for sassin’ Mr Scott
My brother was killed for a deed I did but I disremember what (yeah)
Well another boy is down the shovel burned him out
Let me stand on his body to see what the shoutin’s about
I’m goin’ to Memphis yeah I’m goin’ to Memphis hmm

Like a bitter weed I’m a bad seed
But when the levee’s thru and I am too
Let the honky tonk roll on come mornin’ I’ll be gone
I’m goin’ to Memphis yeah Memphis
