It ain't natural for a Delta man to be surrounded by all this sand
To fear the echoes of live rounds
And to never sleep when the sun goes down
So I'm writing you this letter
To say that I miss you more than ever and to promise you this
When I make it back to Memphis
I'm gonna take you in my arms and never let you go
And girl I promise you a kiss for every day we've missed
'Til I make it back to Memphis
I'll have to say I think we've done some good
If I had to do it all again you know I would
There's still a few shots every now and then
But they say this thing is finally coming to an end
So this might be my final letter
I say the sooner the better
'cause I'm ready to come home
When I make it back to Memphis
I'm gonna take you in my arms and never let you go
And girl I promise you a kiss for every day we've missed
'Til I make it back to Memphis
She reads his letters everyday
And then she puts them all away
Next to his metal and a flag
That she would gladly give back
Oh, if it would bring him back to Memphis
So he could take her in his arms and never let her go
Cause he promised her a kiss for every day they missed
'Till he made it back to Memphis
If he could only make it back to Memphis
Back to Memphis
Back to Memphis
Back to Memphis
