looks like memphis

Looks like memphis"

i'm Sitting in nashville, with plenty of ways that i can go
Lord knows ive been here oh a time or two before
so many times i've gone down to the white sand beaches
or to the outer eastern Carolina reaches
But that Mississippi has been like a long strong fortress
seems to always turn me back home again
and now today i can only look to the west
And Ill be traveling alone, oh to where ive never been

I'll break thru her defences

and I think its memphis, yeah it looks like memphis.
Ill cross the mighty waterway
Into the conquered land
In memphis ummmm looks like memphis.....

up til now my story's been of how the west was lost
That the riches in her sunsets were never worth the cost
its the yearning in the spirit of every breathing man
Its a calling if you hear it or even understand

Its the freedom to fill you sences

And i think its memphis, yeah it looks like memphis
Ill cross the mighty waterway
Into the conquered land
In memphis, ummmm, looks like memphis.....

now the arkansas sun comes shinning thru
as the big muddy slips into the distance
i glance into my side door view
see a glittering jewel like remnant

and it must be memphis, ummm looks like memphis
oh i crossed the mighty waterway into conquered land
in memphis, ummm looks like memphis
goodbye memphis, oh God love memphis......
