​Memphis

This song is by Rancid and appears on the album Indestructible (2003).

"I've lived my whole life made mistakes
From the get-go
Street kid from the start right no regrets no
I do what I want yeah 'cause I said so
No sleep for the weak right No bet no
Rollin' with the punk rockers
I ain't lying
Fake guns fake bands
Fake punk I ain't buying
Hit the road
All I know
Rock and roll ain't dying about fifteen deep
We hit the streets low ridin'

By the time we made it to New Orleans
It must have been half past three
By the time we made it to Memphis
We were crazy
Tonight you're our blanket
And you're gonna keep us warm
Tonight protect us from the storm

He was back causing trouble
Time's they're a comin' round
Oh no, let me go to another round
Tuesday night is when the storm's gonna settle down
Had a glance circumstance
Don't cause trouble bound
She's the one, all alone, I come lookin'
Smoke and mirrors as I watch
Aw, that girl was trippin'
It's no fun lost again
To have your heart broken
Greed is from a world that is built on hustling

By the time we made it to New Orleans
It must have been half past three
By the time we made it to Memphis
We were crazy
Tonight you're our blanket
And you're gonna keep us warm
Tonight protect us from the storm

The breaks were falling when they had failed
Every road can lead ya straight down to fucking hell
Rain stopped falling when they had failed
Every road can take ya straight down to hell

Doing nothing here everyone straight trippin'
Happy at times are gone past starts slippin
This will be enough to keep me on the road livin'
Good every night in a different city I'll be sleepin'
Let me know here we go met a girl named Lola
Is she here Is she there Drinking Jack and cola,
She says, "Tim, where ya been? I got somethin' to show ya"
Lola fired off her clothes and started rock and rollin'!

By the time we made it to New Orleans
It must have been half past three
By the time we made it to Memphis
We were crazy
Tonight you're our blanket
And you're gonna keep us warm
Tonight protect us from the storm"
