Memphis: The Blues Song Lyrics

[Verse 1: Zach Bryan]
Rain started falling on the roof that morning
It was early summertime
We fogged up the rear window of my '67
Three-hundred, in-line
My lungs have been hurting and it’s likely my liver
Has taken a l!cking too
Them Beale Street boys are handy
With a clap on four and two

[Verse 2: Zach Bryan]
The thrill is gone so slow and easy, won't you love me tender?
The way you move's a drug and I am on a life-long bender
So rest them tired eyes and let your dress fall to the ground
We're the only onеs left who love Otis in this town

[Chorus: Zach Bryan]
I need you like Mеmphis, the blues
I need you like Memphis, the blues

[Verse 3: John Moreland]
Cracked up skies tried on a couple lives
To find the one that fit
Cold wind coming and the heat quit running
But you keep my candle lit
Pictures on the wall say it all with the kinda conviction, make a river burn
You got a skeleton key on a chain around your neck
I got a chain around my heart
Church bells ringing in the air down the hill
From the house where you were born
I said, "Baby, don't you think we ought to live a little bit
Before Gabriel blows his horn?"

[Chorus: John Moreland]
I need you like Memphis, the blues
I need you like Memphis, the blues

[Chorus: Zach Bryan & John Moreland]
I need you like Memphis, the blues
I need you like Memphis
, the blues
I need you like Memphis, the blues
I need you like Memphis, the blues

[Outro: John Moreland & Zach Bryan]
Yeah, we should just
F**k it, yeah, I'm in
