Maybe It Was Memphis
Pam Tillis Lyrics


Lookin' at you through a misty moonlight
Katydid sing like a symphony
Porch swing swayin' like a Tennessee lullaby
Melody blowing through the willow tree

What was I supposed to do
Standing there lookin' at you
A lonely boy far from home

Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was Southern summer nights
Maybe it was you maybe it was me
But it sure felt right

Read about you in a Faulkner novel
Met you once in a Williams play
Heard about you in a country love song
Summer night beauty took my breath away

What was I supposed to do
Standing there lookin' at you
A lonely boy far from home

Every night now since I've been back home
I lie awake drifting in my memory
I think about you on your momma's front porch swing
Talking that way so soft to me

What was I supposed to do
Standing there lookin' at you
A lonely boy far from home

Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was Southern summer nights
Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was Southern summer nights

What was I supposed to do
Standing there lookin' at you
A lonely boy far from home

I was never so happy to see someone succeed because in 1986 I cut and permed Pam's hair in my Nashville home in order save her some money as my price in the salon was $85. I remember she sang me a song she had just written titled "What would Elvis do?" Pam was passionate about her music and it always came through in every song she sang.

I was at work recently and my buddy is telling me about his new house on a secluded lake in mid Florida. He say's "Oh yeah my new place is great. My neighbors are all great. Do you know who Pam Tillis is? She's my neighbor. Sometimes she sings outside and you can hear her." I'm jealous.
