Down in Memphis gettin' down
Well I toss my bank account around
Hikin' Beale Street up and down
Well I'm searchin' for the blues
Aw but Gus's chicken sounded good to me
And I wash it down with a glass of tea
That's southern hospitality
The best you ever seen

Oh but Furry's gone
and it all feels wrong
Ain't what I had in mind
Gift shops runnin down the street
with the tacky neon signs
and no locals hangin' anywhere
I couldn't find one if I tried
I'm down and drunk in memphis
I got Beale Street on my mind

Took a step and turned around
and i was down the block
Let my hair hang in my eyes
As I'm walkin passed the traffic cops
Well I ain't no fake but it's gettin late
And I'd rather not get caught
"'Scuse me son tell me what you done
And show me what you got"


Asked a coupla of girls to dance
But I wasn't gettin' far
Spot a coupla hoochie mamas
over by the bar
Well she spoke to me through golden teeth
And she had a crooked smile
"200 dollars and some change will keep
me around for a little while"
