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

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

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

Every night now since I've been back home
Lie awake drifting in my memory
Think about you on your mama'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 you, maybe it was me
But it sure felt right

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

Oh, you know it sure felt right
Oh, maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was Memphis
But it sure felt right

we need more music like this nowadays.

THINK DRAGON the legacy fulfilled

@countrygirl country musiclover The number one way to generate clicks on the internet is rage. Looks like you're a statistic. Keep up the good work.

@Michael P Hurley they 100% know it sucks. Florida Georgia line definitely doesn't think their music is good. none of them do. But they're smart because they recognize that music taste has dumbed down. they know what my generation wants (sigh, it's a shame) and they provide exactly that. I can't really blame them either because they're doing what makes them the most money. Tyler Childers and Stapleton are definitely the best we have right now. They actually sing about meaningful stuff and make good music. I'm a guitar nerd and I'm not a southern person but I grew up around old country. Stapleton is probably the best country guitar player nowadays excluding bluegrass. If you like bluegrass, check out Billy strings. in my opinion he's by far the best new bluegrass player. Dust in a baggie is a great song

@countrygirl countrymusiclover yeah but it's old. Florida Georgia line is hot poopoo

yeet

@countrygirl country musiclover mainstream country today is total garbage over pop drum kits. There are a few exceptions though. The golden age of country is gone.
