The Lyrics


Went to Graceland last year at tax time
Impersonators singing Elvis melodies
Started swaying, can't breathe, now I'm gonna die
On my birthday here in Tennessee

How did I get so sick
I shouldn't have made this trip
A Mississippi girl so far from home

Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was too damn cold that night
I was fine when I left home
Now I don't feel right

Got back home went to the hospital
Oxygen mask strapped to my face
Diabetes, bronchitis, and double pneumonia
The more they found, the longer I stayed

What the hell happened down there
My dream trip was a nightmare
I'll never go back to Tennessee

Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was too damn cold that night
I was fine when I left home
Now I don't feel right

Every night now since I've been back home
I wake up coughing, can't sleep or breathe
Think I'm getting Alzheimer's and cancer
I even quit smoking, oh God help me

My birthday's coming up again
Think I'll just go out with friends
And eat out at Ryan's steakhouse

Maybe it was Memphis
Maybe it was too damn cold that night
I was fine when I left home
Now I don't feel right

Maybe it was Memphis

Maybe it was Memphis

Maybe it was Memphis

Thanks for your votes and comments, guys, and this is actually a true story, but not my own. This happened to my sister.

There's so little country parodied on this site, so this was great to see. I thought it was great.
