Back to Memphis  The Band


[A7] [D7] [A7] [E7] [A7]  
[VERSE 1] 
[A7]I've been struggling up here, just, trying to make a living
Everybody wants to take, nobody likesgiving
I wi[D7]sh I was in Memphis back home with my Mama
The only [A7]clothes I got left that ain't rags is my pajamas
No [E7]brotherly love, no help, no danger
Just a g[A7]reat big town full of cold hearted strangers
[VERSE 2] 
I w[A7]ent hungry in New York and Chicago was no better
But today, my dear mother wrote and told me in her letter
Sai[D7]d, come on back to Memphis and live here with your Mama
You[A7] can walk down Beale Street honey, wearing your pajamas
You know fol[E7]ks down here, we let do just what you want to
And I bo[A7]rn you and raised you right here on the corner
[BREAK} (to verse pattern 2x)
[A7] [D7] [A7] [E7] [A7]  
[A7] [D7] [A7] [E7] [A7]  
[VERSE 3] 
[A7]I'm going get up in the morning going to the bus station
I've got just enough money to reach my destination
I'm g[D7]oing back to Memphis, back home with my Mama
I'm going to [A7]ride that bus barefoot in my pajamas
[E7]Yeah I'm going back to Memphis, no moaning and groaning
I know e[A7]verything will be all right in the morning
[A7] [D7] [A7] [E7] [A7]
