Trisha Yearwood Nothin' 'Bout Memphis Lyrics

Last updated: 12/08/2008 10:00:00 AM

Can't believe I'm back here again
Feels like a lifetime and a thousand miles since then
It was just one summer night
But the kind of night you never can forget
And I'm here with my baby and we're driving downtown
He thinks I've never been here, wants to show me around

But he don't know nothin' 'bout Memphis
How could he ever know this was our town?
All he sees is that big old muddy river and the ghost of Elvis
But he don't know nothin' 'bout Memphis

Don't wanna look him in the eye
Scared he might see what I remember of that night
We were dancing on the water
We were singing hallelujah to the stars
And I know that it would hurt him, if he could see my past
He thinks he's the only one who's touched me like that

But he don't know nothin' 'bout Memphis
How could he ever know this was our town?
All he sees is that big old muddy river and the ghost of Elvis
But he don't know nothin' 'bout Memphis

Sweet, sweet Memphis, all the good times we had
Ain't no harm in looking back, no, no, no

He don't know nothin' 'bout Memphis
How could he ever know this was our town?
All he sees is that muddy Mississippi and the ghost of Elvis
But he don't know nothin' 'bout Memphis
Sweet, sweet Memphis
