Memphis in the Meantime lyrics

Facebook "Memphis in the Meantime" by John Hiatt appears on his album, 'Bring the Family' - 1987. It's a Country-Blues song that perfectly captures the blend of Country, Blues and Rockabilly you'll find in Memphis, Tennessee. Many musicians went to Memphis after WW2 to become part of the blues scene at Sun Records. Hiatt was growing up during this time and with this kind of music. via georgeplant061

I got something to say little girl
You might not like my style
But we've been hanging around this town
Just a little too long a while
You say you're gonna get your act together
Gonna take it out on the road
But if I don't get outta here pretty soon
My head's going to explode


Sure I like country music
And I like mandolins
But right now I need a Telecaster
Through a Vibro-lux turned up to ten


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


I need a little shot of that rhythm baby
Mixed up with these country blues
I wanna trade in these old country boots
For some fine Italian shoes

Forget the mousse and the hairspray sugar
We don't need none of that
Just a little dab'll do ya girl
Underneath a pork pie hat


Until hell freezes over
Maybe you can wait that long
But I don't think Ronnie Milsap's gonna ever
Record this song


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

I'm a talking about Memphis
I'm talkin' 'bout Memphis
Memphis

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 old 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 Rendezvous


'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 cow horns back on the Cadillac
And change the message on the code-a-phone

But...

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

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

I'm a talking about Memphis
I'm talkin' 'bout Memphis
Memphis
