about

The sun is shining and the clouds are all over the blue sky
I’m trucking in my Chevy got my can of A&W and a Moon Pie
I could have stayed put in Texas but there’s something I’ve got to see
So I packed up my truck and now I’m on my way up to Tennessee

I’m moving just as fast as I can keep on pumping gas into this rusty old can
And assuming everything goes to plan
I’ll meet you in Memphis

I’m rolling along with a Chuck Berry song on my radio
But in my case I have in mind a particular place to go
There’s a brown-eyed handsome man there he’s my destination
And I know that he’s trouble but he gives me such good vibrations

Each mile under the wheels puts a smile on my face feeling that much closer to the land of Grace
I’m going to cakewalk straight down Beale Street
When I meet you in Memphis

The blind man on the corner’s going to smile when he hears my happy feet
Going to get up and run don’t walk ain’t going to mess around when we meet
Got my blue suede shoe to the floor and I’m rolling hard and wild to get there fast
And I’m chewing my nails but how sweet it is to be there at last

Goodbye to all the lights of old gay Broadway The Miracle Mile and the Beauty Way
We’re going to stay all night and day dear
When I meet you in Memphis
Blue skies smiling at me nothing but blue skies
When I meet you in Memphis
