MEMPHIS IN THE MEANTIME (John Hiatt) John Hiatt Also recorded by : Gregg Allman; Sam Bush; Carl Perkins; Chris Smither. I got some'n' to say little girl You might not like my style But we been hangin' around this town Just a little too long a while You say you're gonna get your act together Gonna take it out on the road But if I don't get out o' here pretty soon My head's going to explode Sure I like country music And I like mandolins But right now I need a Telecaster Through a Vibrolux turned up to 10 CHORUS: Let's go to Memphis in the meantime baby Ahw..Memphis in the meantime girl Let's go to Memphis in the meantime baby Memphis in the meantime girl I need a little shot of that rhythm baby Mixed up with these country blues I wanna trade in these ol' cowboy boots For some fine Italian shoes Forget the mousse and the hairspray sugar We don't need none of that Just a little dab'll do ya girl Underneath a pork pie hat Until hell freezes over Maybe you can wait that long But I don't think Ronnie Milsap's gonna ever Record this song CHORUS TWICE Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby Let's go to Memphis in the meantime girl Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby Let's go to Memphis in the meantime girl BRIDGE: Maybe there's nothin' happenin' there But maybe there's somethin' in the aiiirrrrr Before our upper lips get stiff Maybe we need us a big ol' whiff... If we could just get off-a that beat little girl Maybe we could find the groove At least we can get ourselves a decent meal Down at the Rendezvous 'Cause one more heartfelt steel guitar chord Girl, it's gonna do me in I need to hear some trumpet and saxophone You know sound as sweet as sin And after we get good and greasy Baby we can come on home Put the cow horns back on the Cadillac And change the message on the Cordaphone But... CHORUS Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby Let's go to Memphis in the meantime girl Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby Let's go to Memphis in the meantime girl I'm a talking about Mem---phis I'm talkin' 'bout Mem---phis Mem---phis (Contributed by Nancy - August 2005)
