Memphis in the Rain  Justin Townes Earle

[E] [E] [E] [E]  
[E] Staring down the blacktop at [Ab]a cold dark night, boys
[A]Pitch black sky there ain't a [F#]star in sight
But I'm [E]looking for a change
I'm[B7] passing through Memphis in the [E]rain[B7]
[E] Whitewashed buildings and old [Ab]overgrown yards
I've got [A]one hand on the wheel, I've got [F#]one on my heart
Looking for a [E]girl without a name
I'm[B7] passing through Memphis in the [E]rain
[A/E] But no matter what I do, Lord, I ca[E]n't stop
[A/E] Gotta keep that hammer to the floor baby
[B7] Until I'm clear out of Arkansas, mama cause
[E] I know what they can [Ab]do to me, Lord and I
[A]Won't let them make a [F#]fool out of me
Things are [E]starting to get strange
[B7] Passing through Memphis in the [E]rain[B7]
|: E Ab A F# E B7 E (B7) :|
[A/E] Sometimes a man's just gotta know when to [E]go
[A/E] He's gotta earn himself a keepin', baby
[B7] He's gotta know when he's been beaten
So I [E]called a cousin down in [Ab]Houston
He said [A]"come on down boy, we got [F#]work for you to be doing"
I'm [E]looking for a change
[B7]Passing through Memphis in the [E]rain
Yeah things are startin' to get strange
I'm [B7]passing through Memphis in the [E]rain
