RAVE: Memphis

Post by cards2468 »

Just got back from Memphis, and I really enjoyed Beale Street last night. Good music, good bars, and good people there. I especially love the fact that I can have a beer in hand and shop through a bunch of gift shops.

Good rave. Memphis is a blast.

There are some sketchy areas though, gotta be careful.

at the risk of repeating myself...

Did I forget to mention, forget to mention Memphis?
Home of Elvis and the ancient Greeks.
Do I smell? I smell home cooking.
It's only the river... it's only the river...

I spent the absolute worst week of my life in Memphis and I never even got downtown. Highlights included tearing the [expletive] out of my rental car trying to break into it after I locked my keys in it, ordering a pizza for pickup and never finding the place and then getting a ticket mailed to me weeks later showing me running a red light. I don't ever want to go back. The Bar-B-Que was good though.

Then I'm walking in Memphis
I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?

I saw stars
Dancin' on the water
I heard Elvis
Singin' Blue Suede Shoes

And that muddy water
Was my witness
The night I fell in love
with the Queen of Memphis

You say you're gonna get your act together
Gonna take it out on the road
But if I don't get outta here pretty soon
My head's going to explode

Sure I like country music
I like mandolins
But right now I need a telecaster
Through a vibro-lux turned up to ten

Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

I need a little shot of that rhythm baby
Mixed up with these country blues
I wanna trade in these ol country boots
For some fine italian shoes

Forget the mousse and the hairspray sugar
We don't need none of that
Just a little dab'll do ya girl
Underneath a pork pie hat

Until hell freezes over
Maybe you can wait that long
But I dont think Ronnie Milsap's gonna ever
Record this song
