Memphis In The Meantime

	  Intro:  (E)  (E)  (E)  (E)  {twice} 
 
 
(E) 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 (A) say you're gonna get your (D) act together 
Gonna (A) take it out on the road 
But if I dont get (E) outta here pretty soon 
My head's going to explode 
  
Sure (B) I like country music 
I like mandolins 
But right (A) now I need a tele(D)caster 
Through a vibro(A)lux turned up to ten 
  
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby 
Memphis in the meantime girl 
  
I (E) need a little shot of that rhythm baby 
Mixed up with these country blues 
I wanna trade in these ol cowboy boots 
For some fine italian shoes 
  
For(A)get the mousse and the (D) hairspray sugar 
We (A) dont need none of that 
Just a (E) little dab'll do ya girl 
Underneath a pork pie hat 
  
Un(B)til hell freezes over 
Maybe you can wait that long 
But I (A) dont think Ronnie (D) Milsap's gonna (A) ever 
Record this song 
 
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby 
Memphis in the meantime girl 
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby 
Memphis in the meantime girl 
 
(A) Maybe there's (D) nothin' happenin' (A) there 
Maybe there's (D) somethin' in the (A) air (E) 
(A) Before our (D) upper lips get (A) stiff 
Maybe we (D) need us a big ol (A) whiff (E) 
 
If we could (E) 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 (A) one more heartfelt (D) steel guitar chord 
(A) Girl, it's gonna do me in 
I need to (E) hear some trumpet and saxophone 
You know sound as sweet as sin 
  
And after (B) we get good and greasy 
Baby we can come back home 
Put the (A) cowhorns back on the (D) cadillac 
And change the (A) message on the cord-a-phone 
 
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby 
Memphis in the meantime girl 
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby 
Memphis in the meantime girl 
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby 
Memphis in the meantime girl 
 
Repeat and fade...
