MEMPHIS IN JUNE (Hoagy Carmichael / Paul Francis Webster) Hoagy Carmichael with Billy May & his Orchestra recorded December 16th 1947 also recorded by Julie London 1956 Memphis in June, A shady verandah Under a Sunday blue sky. Memphis in June, And cousin Amanda's Makin' a rhubarb pie. I can hear the clock inside a-tickin' an' a-tockin', Everything is peacefully dandy. I can see old granny 'cross the street still a-rockin', Watchin' the neighbours go by. Memphis in June, With sweet oleander Blowin' perfume in the air. Up jumps a moon To make it that much grander; It's paradise, Brother take my advice, Nothin's half as nice As Memphis in June! (whistling) Memphis in June, With sweet oleander Blowin' perfume in the air. Up jumps a moon To make it that much grander; It's paradise, Brother take my advice, Nothin's half as nice As Memphis in June! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - May 2014)
