BETTE MIDLER lyrics : "Midnight In Memphis"


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.


Runnin' down on Beale Street.
Can you hear that engine roar?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Runnin' down on Beale Street.
There's a girl in every door.
Yeah, 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.
