Memphis
singer/songwriter: David Nail

We met in memphis
In a small caffee downtown
She was in for business
I was just on my way out

She was looking lonely over
there sipping on a coffee cup
Me being the friendly kind
i just couldn't pass this up
So i made my way all over
to the corner booth
In my sweetest voice i said
"would you care if i joined you"
With a smile she said yes

It was love working in memphis,
tennessee, it was meant to be
I could never have known that day
she was 'bout to come my way
It was someone else's plan, i guess
I fell in love right there in Memphis

We stayed by the river
in some town's house hotel sleep
And we made love all night long
till we drifted off to sleep

I woke up in paradise
She laying there by my side
With the sound of wedding bells
ringing in my mind
So i asked that morning
As we layed there in the sheets

I can't imagine a sweeter sound
than the way she answered me
With a smile she said yes
It was love working in memphis,
tennessee, it was meant to be
I could never have known that day
she was 'bout to come my way

It was someone else's plan, i guess
I fell in love right there in memphis
So i asked that morning
As we layed there in the sheets

I can't imagine a sweeter sound
than the way she answered me
With a smile she said yes
It was love working in memphis
With a smile she said yes

It was love working in memphis,
tennessee, it was meant to be
I could never have known that day
she was 'bout to come my way
It was someone else's plan, i guess
I fell in love right there in Memphis
We fell in love right there in Memphis
