Bon Jovi Memphis Lives In Me Lyrics

There’s a town that I call home

Where all the streets are paved with soul

Down on Beale there’s a honky-tonk bar

So hear the wail of a blues guitar

Have a beer and drop a dime in the blind man’s jar

The blues sing softly in the air

Like a Sunday morning prayer

Just one more drink and

And you’ll see God everywhere

Like a sad old melody

That cheers you up, it sets you free

And that’s how Memphis lives in me

There comes a time when muddy waters run rough

There comes a point when a man has had enough

Like a friend that always stands by me

Memphis knows me never showed me

How did life just had to be

I couldn’t even try to run away, say goodbye

Here I was born and here is where I’ll die

I’m just a man from Tennessee

I can’t be what I can’t be

All I know is Memphis lives in me

I said, “I’m just a man from Tennessee”

Can’t be what I can’t be

All I know is Memphis lives

All I know is Memphis gives

All I know is Memphis in me
