Maybe It Was Memphis-crd

Pam Tillis

------------------------------------------------------------------

 Actually in A; capo 2.
 Eacb cbord is balf a measure.
[The little melody thing in the intro (and elsewhere) is just G and Gsus4;
do it by using your index finger to switch back and forth quickly from
3x0003 to 320013. I marked it in the chords as G*.]

 intro

 GGGC
 Looking at you through a misty moonlight, katydids sing like a symphony
 GGGC
 Porch swing swaying like a Tenn. lullaby, melody blowing thru the willow tree
 DCDC
   What was I s'posed to do,   standing there looking at you
D F G G*
Lonely boy far from home
 GGCC
Maybe it was Memphis,   maybe it was southern summer nights
Am7 C G G*
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
Read about you in a Faulkner novel, met you once in a Williams play
Heard about you in a country love song, summer night beauty took my breath away
What was I s'posed to do, standing there looking at you
Lonely boy far from home
Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
 Guitar solo, same cbords as cborus; see tab at end
Every night now since I've been back home, lie awake drifting in my memory
Think about you on my mama's front porch swing, talking that way, so soft to me
What was I s'posed to do, standing there looking at you
Lonely boy so far from home
Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
Am7 C G G*
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
G C/G G G*
Ohhh, you know it sure felt right
G C/G G G*
Oh, maybe it was Memphis
G C/G G G*
Maybe it was Memphis
G C/G G G*
Maybe it was Memphis
G C G G* G C G G*

GUITAR SOLO TAB:
* It's probably actually played in A with no capo, but I find it easier in G.
(I got this by translating some piano sheet music into tablature.)
* "tri" denotes sixteenth-note triplets. "triplets" are eighth triplets.
* The marks below the tab lines are timing; they're mostly accurate.
* An equal sign (=) is a hammer-on or pull-off. When there wasn't room for
the marker, I put the numbers and equal signs in parentheses below the tab.
I did that so that 1=0 wouldn't be confused with the number 10 (ten).
