Memphis on The River - Matt Stell

You try so hard to be a mystery
A lady never shows her cards
The words you speak, say you love me
But the tone of your voice says it's hard

Love me to pieces, you left me speechless
I'm fighting fair, but baby, I know your weakness

So let's go to Memphis on the river at that special place we know
You can wear your emerald dress that makes your red hair glow
We'll drink whiskey mixed with moonlight like the water's steady flow
Memphis on the river, that's where I wanna go

I don't pretend to have the answers
As if the questions weren't enough
But let's just say the more you share
Beggin' me to call your bluff

It's just six o'clock, baby, don't you stop
Leave Nashville now, and I'll leave Little Rock

We'll go to Memphis on the river at that special place we know
You can wear your emerald dress that makes your red hair glow
We'll drink whiskey mixed with moonlight like the water's steady flow
Memphis on the river, that's where I wanna go

Lovin' soothes our hearts, like slow heat in the dark
With an old song playing, that echoes just what I'm saying, babe

Memphis on the river at that special place we know
You can wear your emerald dress that makes your red hair glow
We'll drink whiskey mixed with moonlight like the water's steady flow
Memphis on the river, that's where I wanna go

We're goin' to Memphis on the river
Go to Memphis on the river, child
Memphis on the river, baby, river, baby
Come on let's go, it won't take long
Meet me down in Memphis
