Cinco De Mayo In Memphis Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Meanwhile down on Biel Street
Drinking in a Biel Street bar
There's a fog rollin' off the Mississippi
Has anybody seen Arkansas?

And the deckhands from the toll boats
Come ashore wearin' Mexican shoes
They headed strait for Graceland
It was the first thing they wanted to do

Cinco de Mayo in Memphis
Marchetti singin' the blues
Soul sisters hugging Senoritas
All sportin' Blue suede shoes

Pork pie hats and sombreros
Hangin' on a downtown street
Swingin' pool cues at Pinatas
Don't that river smell sweet?

And they all come to get 'em some Memphis
A little somethin' for their souls
'Lone riders land up with limousines
Hey, they all came to rock and roll

Cinco de Mayo in Memphis
Marchetti singin' the blues
Southern belles and Senoritas
All sportin' Blue suede shoes

Cinco de Mayo in Memphis
Marchetti singin' the blues
Soul sisters hugging Senoritas
All sportin' Blue suede shoes

Songwriters
Clark, Guy / Mead, Chuck
