All the Way From Memphis
by Rikki Rockett

Forgot my six-string razor - hit the sky
Half way to Memphis 'fore I realized
Well I rang the information - my axe was cold
They said she rides the train to Oreoles

Now its a mighty long way down the dusty trail
And the sun burns hot on the cold steel rails
And I look like a bum 'n I crawl like a snail
All the way from Memphis

Well I got to Oreoles ya know - it took a month
And there was my guitar, electric junk.
Some spade said "Rock n' rollers, you're all the same.
Man that's your instrument." I felt so ashamed.

Now its a mighty long way down rock n' roll
Through the Bradford Cities and the Oreoles
And you look like a star but you're still on the dole
All the way from Memphis

Yeah it's a mighty long way down rock n' roll
From the Liverpool docks to the Hollywood Bowl
And you climb up the mountains and you fall down the holes
All the way from Memphis

Yeah its a mighty long way down rock n' roll
As your name gets hot so your heart grows cold
And you gotta stay young man, you can never be old
All the way from Memphis

Yeah its a mighty long way down rock n' roll
Through the Bradford Cities and the Oreoles
And you look like a star but you're really out on parole!
All the way from Memphis
