Lyrics

the last time i was in Memphis
by robin oHerin 2006

the last time i was in Memphis, you know i cried myself to sleep
feelings like that old Mississippi were running wild and deep
i thought the longer i kept driving, the less youd be on my mind
the last time i was in Memphis, ithought id left these blues behind

CHORUS
the last time i was in Memphis,
was the last time I,ll cry for you.
driving down that music highway,
gonna drive right theough these blues.
if i'd a known where we were headed,
I would've stopped, and thought it through.
The last time i was in Memphis,
is the last time ill cry for you.

cotton fields and gold wheat waving, stretch across the sky.
theres a time for staying, a time for saying goodbye.
theres a time for leaving, a time for starting anew.
last time I was in Memphis,
is the last time ill cry for you.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Driving for days, barely breaking even,
is still better than sitting home missing you.
i got wide open spaces to keep me believing
i got places to go and things to do,
and i know my God is gonna see me through
if i'd a known where we were headed,
I would've stopped, and thought it through.
The last time i was in Memphis,
is the last time i'll cry for you.
