Mike Maves: Music

Went To Memphis

(Mike Maves)
July 23, 2005
Went to Memphis
Made a couple stops along the way
Went to Memphis
Made a couple stops along the way
Caught in the spotlight
Caught up in the wake

Had some trouble in Memphis
And I won’t be home no more
Had some trouble in Memphis
Sucked me down to the river floor
Now I'm deader than Elvis
Trying to get back to the shore

It’s a cryin’ shame
A struggle for attention
It’s a quest for fame
That ended in ascension
But better dead than never
Is what some mother made the minister mention
Better dead than never
Is what some mother made the minister mention
