Memphis Rain - Parker McCollum

Still remember that crackle
That needed layin' down
Stain on the glass in the chapel
As we laid him in the ground
And feet start shufflin'
Honey mine start runnin'
Yeah, I run that Mississippi
Till my feet in Tennessee ground
Just like he told me

Never pray for change
That old Memphis rain

Now my nightmares, mama
Been keepin' me awake
Never knew what the blues could to to a boy
That was givin' everythin' it takes
Now the Cadillac's hummin'
And my heart starts pumpin'
And there ain't no doubt that there's no way out
From everything I ever wanted
The pills and the pain

Never pray for change
That old Memphis rain

And it's gold, I can't roll that it's mine
Don't mistake what it takes to lose sight of the line
'Cause in time, you will find if you do

Well they burned down Big Hill
And they marched away
I can still see that old A-frame
Kickin' back off of that big lake
I still go there
To the middle of nowhere
It's a lifetime meant to me
Gotta build it up to what it oughta be
Just like he told me

Never pray for change
That old Memphis rain

(That old Memphis rain, that old Memphis rain)
(That old Memphis rain, that old Memphis rain)
(That old Memphis rain, that old Memphis rain)
(That old Memphis rain, that old Memphis rain)
(That old Memphis rain, that old Memphis rain)
(That old Memphis rain, that old Memphis rain)
