What’s the temperature darling? 100 and more The horses pawing out the dust, but it’s Wilton by the door But you pour your strongest coffee and I’ll take back of the wheel We’ll drive straight down the river road, spread a blanket on the hill What’s the temperature darling? I don’t stare into the past There was nothing that we could change or fix, it was never gonna last Now don’t stare into those photos, don’t memorize my eyes We’re just a mile or two from Memphis in the rhythm of our minds [Chorus] A mile or two from Memphis And I must go away I tore up all the highways Now there’s nothing left to say A mile or two from Memphis And I finally made it home There were days you paced the kitchen, there were nights that felt like jail When the phone rang in the dead of night you’d always throw my veil No, you never touched the whiskey and you never took the pills I travelled for a million miles while you were standing still What’s the temperature darling as the daylight fades way? I’ll make one last rehearsal with one foot in the grave We kept the house on all the corners, we kept the polished bass guitar We kept the tickets and the wheels of tape to remember who we are A mile or two from Memphis And I must go away I tore up all the highways There’s nothing left to say A mile or two from Memphis And I finally made it home What’s the temperature darling?
