The Rose of Memphis
I drove all the way from Storyville on a midnight Memphis run From Bourbon Street to Beale Street straight up Highway 61 I was tuned in on radio maybe ten miles out of town When I heard the rose of Memphis boys that's when I left the ground I can't go back to Storyville way down there by the sea Till I can say I got the rose of Memphis coming home with me She wrapped her song around my heart just like the Kudzu vine That keeps on growing after dark straight up some lonesome pine I've got to find that woman now cause my life ain't complete Man there ain't nobody out there got the rose of Memphis beat I can't go back to New Orleans that ol' crescent city town Till I can say I got the rose of Memphis coming on the rounds Rose of Memphis I love the rose of Memphis Rose of Memphis I love the rose of Memphis I love the rose of Memphis man she sings just like a bird I swear she makes the sweetest sound I think I ever heard She was born down by the river that ol' river's in her soul Man they can't nobody touch her when the rose is on a roll I can't get go back to Louisiana by the Gulf of Mexico Till I can say I've got the rose of Memphis coming home to show Rose of Memphis I love the rose of Memphis Rose of Memphis I love the rose of Memphis
