Looking back on everything 
And all the things that stay
I can count on memories 
Because they don't go away
Good times were hard to hold 
Until she came along
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

I'm not always there I know
But she don't mind at all
As pretty as a picture 
That hangs on my own wall
She's like Mississippi
When the sun comes up at dawn
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

With an angel on my left side
And a devil on my right
She's the one who saves me 
From them dark and holy nights
Of all the ones who've left me
It's a wonder she's not gone
She moves me like a Memphis soul song
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

She don't care what the game is 
She's always down to play
My world without her 
Seems a million miles away
She don't have to worry 
I know where I belong
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

I've been dealt some aces 
And I've played them all the same
But she's the only one 
That keeps me in the game
No fame or fortune
Could ever keep me gone
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

With an angel on my left side 
And a devil on my right
She's the one who saves me 
From them dark and holy nights
Of all the ones who've left me
It's a wonder she's not gone
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

There's a magic down in Memphis 
That never seems to fade
Even now them voices carry 
Like a lonely serenade
It's the memories that still
And always will be on my mind
They move me every time.

She sees the good 
In everything there is to see
Sometimes I wonder 
What she ever sees in me
I'm not always right you know 
But she's never led me wrong
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

In all my travels 
I've never found a way 
To find the words that say 
The things I'd like to say
I've sang some melodies 
But she's my favorite one
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.

With an angel on my left side 
And a devil on my right
She's the one who saves me 
From them dark and holy nights
Of all the ones who've left me
It's a wonder she's not gone
She moves me like a Memphis soul song
She moves me like a Memphis soul song.
