The Sins of Memphisto  John Prine


The Sins of Memphisto - John Prine

Tabbed by: Dave S.
Tuning: Standard
Artist: John Prine
Album: Anthology Disc 2
Year: 1993
From the [F]bells of St Mary
To the [C]Count of Monte Cristo
[G]Nothing can stop, nothing can stop
Nothin can stop the [F]sins of Mem[C]phisto
[G]Sally used to play with her hula hoops
[F]Now she tells her problems to therapy groups
[G]Grampa's on the front lawn staring at a rake
[F]Wondering if his marriage was a terrible mistake
[G]I'm sitting on the front steps drinking orange crush
[F]Wondering if it's possible if I could still blush
Uh [C]huh Oh yeah
[G]Boy on a bike with corduroy slacks
[F]leeps in the river by the railroad tracks
[G]He waits for the whistle on the train to scream
[F]So he can close his eyes and begin to dream
Uh [C]huh Oh yeah
(Repeat Chorus)
[G]The hands on his watch spin slowly around
With his [F]mind on a bus that goes all over town
[G]Looking at the babies and the factories
[F]Listening to the music of Mister Squeeze
[G]As if by magic or remote control
He [F]finds a piece of a puzzle that he missed in his soul
Uh [C]huh Oh yeah
(Repeat Chorus)
[G]Adam and Eve and Lucy and Ricky
[F]Bit the big apple and got a little sticky
[G]Esmeralda and the Hunchback of Notre Dame
[F]They humped each other like they had no shame
[G]They paused as they posed for a Polaroid photo
[F]She whispered in his ear Exactly Odo, Quasimoto
(Repeat Chorus)
[G]Sally used to play with her hula hoops
[F]Now she tells her problems to therapy groups
Uh [C]huh Oh yeah
