Lyrics

I'LL ALWAYS BE MEMPHIS

Written By: CANDICE CHAFTON CHILDRESS


DOWN IN MISSISSIPPI, WITH NO WHERE TO GO,
TWO GIRLS SAT CRYIN', WAITIN' ON MOMMA TO SHOW.
BUT MOMMA WAS WASTED, ON BOURBON AND COKE,
THEY WASN'T ON HER MIND,
LIFE WAS JUST ANOTHER JOKE.

CHORUS
AND THEY DIDN'T NEED, HER WRESTLESNESS,
AND THEY DIDN'T NEED, ALL HER PAIN,
AND THEY DIDN'T WANT ALL THAT TRAGEDY,
BUT SHE HAD NOTHIN' ELSE TO GAIN.

EVERY FEW WEEKS, SHE'D GO ON A TRIP,
SO SHE'D FEED HER ADDICTION, ON THAT BEALE ST. STRIP.
THERE NURSERY WAS BEALE ST., JUKE BOXES, AND BARS,
SHE'D LEAVE 'EM WITH STRANGERS, AND HOP INTO CARS.

CHORUS
AND THEY DIDN'T NEED HER ADDICTION,
AND THEY DIDN'T WANT, ALL THAT HURT,
AND THEY DIDN'T DESERVE, ALL THAT SORROW,
FROM THIS ONE YOUNG MOTHER'S WORK.

THEY SAT IN THE CORNERS OF UNKNOWN PLACES,
SCARED OF THE HURT FROM UNKNOWN FACES,
ALL THE HELL OF ONE LIFE,
COULD NEVER COMPARE,
TO THE PAIN AND NEGLECT SHARED BY THIS LITTLE PAIR.

CHORUS
AND WE DIDN'T NEED THAT EXISTENCE!
AND WE ONLY LIVED IN YOUR SHAME!
NOW THERE'S ONLY ONE LIFE LEFT STANDIN',
AND MOMMA IT'S YOU, I GOTTA BLAME!

.......BUT MOMMA, YOU HAVE MY FORGIVENESS,
'CAUSE ON YOUR STAGE OF LIFE YOU MISSED YOUR CUES!
AND I WANNA THANK YOU,
FOR LEAVIN' ME IN MEMPHIS, 'CAUSE THAT'S WHERE I LEARNED,
TO SING THE BLUES.
AND NOW I'M SINGIN, MY BEALE ST. BLUES.
....AND I'LL BE SINGIN',
MY BEALE ST.......BLUES.

I'll Always Be Memphis
