Memphis In The Meantime

Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

Maybe there's nothin' happenin' there
Maybe there's somethin' in the air
Before our upper lips get stiff
Maybe we need us a big ol whiff

If we could just get off-a that beat little girl
Maybe we could find the groove
At least we can get a decent meal
Down at the Rendez-vous

'Cause one more heartfelt steel guitar chord
Girl, it's gonna do me in
I need to hear some trumpet and saxophone
You know sound as sweet as sin

And after we get good and greasy Baby we can come back home
Put the cowhorns back on the cadillac
Change the message on the cord-a-phone


Lets go to Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

As you can see, we're back in Memphis for a few days. It's great place to come home to — Funky Old Memphis. Seems like everywhere you look there's a photo asking to be taken.

Music in the streets followed up with excellent food, Downtown Mempho's definitely as authentic as it is flat out cool. 
Last night was dinner at Five Spot,  Fried Chicken Skin BLT?  It's worth it.



No reason, just liked this little gif and thought I'd post it.
