performed by Lyle Lovett
from Step Inside This House  (1998)   3/4, key of F,  capo 3

INTRO
|D |D |D |D |Bm |G |G |G |G  |       

     Bm             Daug       D
The sun she went down like a  curtain
      Bm             Daug      D
Lord Memphis looks bigger at  night
         G             A         Bm    A
All  the tattooed boys in there  uniforms
              G       A           G
They stepped  in and out of the light         Bm             Daug           D
She bought  me good whisky in  Memphis
            Bm              Daug         D
She bought supper and  she paid for the room
        G        A              Bm  A
And as best as I can  remember
          G           A          G
She paid dearly for  loving me too   
          C                  G       D
She said hey don't I know you now  ain't you the one
     C              G                D
The one with the guitar boys and all them sad  songs
      C
About men in the  rain
                  G
And did you ever miss a plane
   D
To Memphis   
    Bm                Daug       D
We laughed at the strangers we  were in the bed
         Bm         Daug              D
The two cigarettes that lit up the  room
           G           A               Bm           A
Just like  two backseat lovers can't wait to get  started
         G             A        G
Knowing everything's over too  soon   
     Bm             Daug       D
Now Memphis ain't bad in the  morning
      Bm                     Daug    D
Good coffee Hell it's just hard to  find
       G            A                Bm         A      
But let me suggest that you never leave Memphis
      G      A          G
With anything on  your mind   
          C                  G      D
She said hey don't I know you now ain't you  the one
     C              G                D
The one with the guitar boys and all them sad  songs
      C
About men in the  rain
              G
Did you ever miss a plane
   D
To Memphis
