Memphis Woman And Fried Chicken
T. Graham Brown 

Intro: E 

E
Well I'm headin' into Memphis, Memphis Tennessee

The one place in this world I can get something good to eat
      A
I'm hungry for some loving and some fried chicken
E
That goes down greasy, finger lickin'
   B    
I know just where to go there's this woman I know
      A                                    E  
She shakes it up right let it simmer real slow
E
Memphis Women and fried chicken   Memphis Women and chicken

E
Over on Union there's a good old gal 

She can smoke a pig she can fry some fowl
            A
She got biscuits in her oven cornbread in the pan
E
I get by to see her every chance I can
    B
I catch a whiff when I turn the corner
     A                               E
My mouth starts to water and I'm a goner
E
For the Memphis women and fried chicken, Memphis women and chicken

A
Yeah, I take my old guitar and I go down on Beale
E
Play some good blues and get a real good meal
A
I don't care if the whiskey ever hits my lips
    B 
As long as I get a taste of them bar-b-que ribs    

Instrumental: E-A-E-B-A-E 

E
There's a woman up on the bluff make her living making pies

Got chocolate covered fingers and dark blueberry eyes
      A
Got that light powdered sugar sprinkled all in her hair
E                                    
Her apple turnover is beyond compare 
           B
When it's hot late and sticky and you want something cool and sweet 
      A                                             E
She keeps the handle crankin on that homemade ice cream 
E
Memphis women and good fried chicken, Memphis women and chicken


(Spoken)
Yeah, you know there's something about Memphis
Every time I come down here, it speaks to my sense.  
You know old Taylor Ed down on Bill Street.  
He made an Otis shrine.  
Said he would never make another one like it 
No matter how much somebody paid him.  
You know what he told me?  

E
Memphis women and fried chicken, Memphis women and chicken  

Memphis women and good fried chicken, Memphis women and Chicken
