Jimmy Buffett — Meet Me In Memphis lyrics

He's hold up down on Ramrod Key in the Tavernier Hotel
Livin' out his loneliness like an oyster in a shell
By days he pulls the trap lines
By night he lives alone
Don't really feel like company it's just him and his fridge
And his phone

Meet Me In Memphis that's where I'll be
I'm by the river please come back to me
Meet Me In Memphis my wild days are through
And nothin' replaces me next to you

He's been there since she ran away
She said, "She needs some space"
Occasionally she still calls collect
From some god forsaken place
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/jimmy-buffett-meet-me-in-memphis-lyrics.html ]
Then one day a letter came
Postmarked Tennessee
And the envelope scent
And the postage spent
Well it lit up her old memory

Meet Me In Memphis that's what she said
Too much for a letter please come here instead
Meet Me In Memphis my wild days are through
Still nothing replaces me next to you

I know she could break my heart again
But I'm gonna play and I'm gonna win
Where Otis would play
Da da da dock of the bay

Meet Me In Memphis that's where I'll be
I'm by the river you're by the sea
(Oh please) Meet Me in Memphis my wild days are through
Still nothing replaces me next to you
