Maybe It Was Memphis

In the style of

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
maybe it was 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
i lie awake drifting
in my memory

i 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
maybe it was 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 maybe it
was memphis
maybe it was memphis
