By: jimmy buffet, michael utley
1986
He's holed up down on ramrod key in the tavenier hotel
Livin' out his loneliness like an oyster in a shell
By days he pulls the trap line
By night he lives alone
Don't really feel like company it's just him and his fridge and his phone

Chorus:
Meet me in memphis (meet me in memphis)
That's where I'll be (that's where I'll be)
I'm by the river (oooh oooh) please come back to me
Meet me in memphis (meet me in memphis)
My wild days are through
And nothin' replaces (oooh oooh) me next to you

He's been there since she ran away
She said she needs some space
Occasionally she still calls collect
From some God forsaken place

Then one day a letter came
Postmarked tennessee
And the envelope scent
And the postage spent
Well it lit up her old memory

Chorus:
Meet me in memphis (meet me in memphis)
That's what she said (that's what she said)
Too much for a letter (oooh oooh) please come here instead
Meet me in memphis (meet me in memphis)
My wild days are through
Still nothing replaces (oooh oooh) me next to you

(horn instrumental)

(meet me in memphis)

I know she could break my heart again
But I'm gonna play and I'm gonna win
Where otis would play
Da da da dock of the bay

Meet me in memphis (meet me in memphis)
That's where I'll be (that's where I'll be)
I'm by the river (oooh oooh) you're by the sea
Oh please, meet me in memphis (meet me in memphis)
My wild days are through
Still nothing replaces (oooh oooh) me next to you
