It's midnight in memphis
And all the boys are out tonight.
Oh, midnight in memphis,
But my true love is not in sight.
The neon's glowing,
But I just don't see the light.

I'm following my footsteps
Trying to find myself a friend.
Oh, baby! following my footsteps
Trying to see where they might end.
I'm tryin' to break these blues,
But I can't even get them to bend.

Oh, midnight in memphis.
Well, ya take me away.
Midnight in memphis.
It's a long, long time
Before the day.

Burnin' out on beale street.
Can you hear that engine roar?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Burnin' out on beale street.
There's a girl in every door.
Yeah, you know it don't matter what you got,
They're asking me for more.
Play it for me one time, boys.

I heard the river risin',
Risin' up over my head.
Yeah, heard the river risin',
And this is what it said:
"i don't need no live ones;
I just take care of the dead."

Oh, midnight in memphis.
Take me, take me away.
Midnight in memphis.
It's a long, long time
Before the day.

Whoa, oh, oh, oh, midnight in memphis.
Midnight in memphis.
Midnight in memphis.
It's a long, long time
Before the day,
Before the day.
