Never Been to Memphis

This song is by Last Train Home and appears on the album True North (2000).

Rainy day on the avenue
The hometown gray's got me feeling blue
My baby's away, so, I talk to myself
I can't help thinking of somewhere else

There's another, another place, another day
Oh, oh, there's another, another place I can stay

I got black coffee to keep me awake
Cheap liquor, what a mistake
There's no one around, and there ain't nothing to do
I'll pack it up, and find somewhere new

And I've never been to Memphis, never seen the Southern lights
Oh, oh, never thought I would, but now I think I might
Well, I never seen the shine of the Tennessee moon, well maybe it's none no
Maybe it's none too soon

Out on the road, I can't look back
I-95 is like a race track
I got to Carolina, the sun broke through
Roll around town, there ain't nothing but blue

There's another, another place, another day
Oh, oh, there's another, another place I can stay

Now I'm going so fast, I can't hear the radio
The signs stay "STOP!", but they really mean "GO!"
Maybe someday, I don't know when, I'll turn around and be home again

And I've never been to Memphis, never seen the Southern lights
Oh, oh, never thought I would, but now I think I might
Well, I never seen the shine of the Tennessee moon, well maybe it's none no
Maybe it's none too soon

And I've never been to Memphis, never seen the Southern lights
Oh, oh, never thought I would, but now I think I might
Well, I never seen the shine of the Tennessee moon, well maybe it's none no
Maybe it's none too soon

Well, I never seen the shine of the Tennessee moon, maybe it's none no
Well, maybe it's none too soon
