Mama I've Got To Go To Memphis Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Mama did she leave to go to Memphis
Are you taking care care of Braidy while she's gone
And mama is she down there drown the mem'ries
Surely she won't be in Memphis very long
Mama since I left her I've been crazy
I bet she thinks my love for her is gone
I stopped by because I thought she'd be here waiting
Mama Memphis can't be very far
She'll be back to get the baby
Could I stay with little Braidy while she's gone
She'll be back to get the baby
Surely she won't stay in Memphis very long
[ steel ]
She'll be back to get the baby...
