MEET ME IN MEMPHIS
Jimmy Buffett

Intro

He's (D) holed up down on Ramrod Key in the (G) Tavenier Ho(D)tel
(G) Livin' out his (D) loneliness like an (A) oyster in a shell
By (D) days he pulls the trap line
By (G) night he lives a(D)lone
(G) Don't really feel like co(D)mpany it's just (A) him and his fridge and his (D) phone

(G) Meet me in (D) Memphis (meet me in Memphis)
(G) That's where I'll (D) be (that's where I'll be)
(G) I'm by the river (oooh oooh) (G) please come back to (A) me
(G) Meet me in (D) Memphis (meet me in Memphis)
My (G) wild days are (D) through
And (G) nothin' re(D)places (oooh oooh) (Em) (A) me next to (D) you

He's (D) been there since she ran away
(G) She said she needs some (D) space
Oc(G)casionally she still (D) calls collect from some (A) God forsaken place
(D) Then one day a letter came  (G) Postmarked Tenne(D)ssee
And the (G) envelope scent and the (D) postage spent
Well it (A) lit up her old memor(D)y

(G) Meet me in (D) Memphis (meet me in Memphis)
(G) That's where I'll (D) be (that's where I'll be)
(G) I'm by the river (oooh oooh) (G) please come back to (A) me
(G) Meet me in (D) Memphis (meet me in Memphis)
My (G) wild days are (D) through
And (G) nothin' re(D)places (oooh oooh) (Em) (A) me next to (D) you

I (Bm) know she could break my (F#m) heart again
But (Bm) I'm gonna play and (E) I'm gonna win
Where (A) Otis would (G) play
(A) Da da da dock of the (G) bay

(G) Meet me in (D) Memphis (meet me in Memphis)
(G) That's where I'll (D) be (that's where I'll be)
(G) I'm by the river (oooh oooh) (G) please come back to (A) me
(G) Meet me in (D) Memphis (meet me in Memphis)
My (G) wild days are (D) through
And (G) nothin' re(D)places (oooh oooh) (Em) (A) me next to (D) you
