Tom T. Hall - That's How I Got To Memphis Lyrics

 

If you love somebody enough

You'll follow wherever they go

That's how I got to Memphis

That's how I got to Memphis

If you love somebody enough

You'll go where your heart wants to go

That's how I got to Memphis

That's how I got to Memphis

I know if you'd seen her you'd tell me 'cause you are my friend

I've got to find her and find out the trouble she's in

If you tell me that she's not here

I'll follow the trail of her tears

That's how I got to Memphis

That's how I got to Memphis

She would get mad and she used to say

That she'd come back to Memphis someday

That's how I got to Memphis

That's how I got to Memphis

I haven't eaten a bite

Or slept for three days and nights

That's how I got to Memphis

That's how I got to Memphis

I've got to find her and tell her that I love her so

I'll never rest 'til I find out why she had to go

Thank you for your precious time

Forgive me if I start to cryin'

That's how I got to Memphis
