Somewhere South Of Memphis

	  		
Intro: D 

Verse 
                            D 
Well, I need a sip of muddy water 
G       C               D 
From my daddy's wishin' well 

Scattered his ashes on the delta 
G                    C           D 
From here on I'll be drinkin' by myself 
      G      
Where pink Cadillacs and blue suede shoes 
     D 
Meet steel guitars and new grass blues 
    G               C                 A 
The music there, it ain't turned into business 
G               C                  D 
Tonight I'll be somewhere south of Memphis 
          G 
Where the cotton grows from the Mississippi mud 
        D      
And the blues runs deep in you blood  
  G                             A  
I love this land with God as my witness  
     C    G   D   G                  D 
I'll live and die somewhere south of Memphis 
                                    D 
Well, I've seen my share of big ol' cities 
G              C                D 
But I couldn't wait to get back home 

Well, they'll play you a, a front porch song for free 
     G                     C                   D 
That reminds you that they ain't been free for long 
           G 
Where them juke joints jump on a Friday night 
              D 
And you don't need a gun to settle no fight 
         G                              C            A 
And come Sunday mornin', hell, you'll be beggin' for forgiveness 
G                C                  D 
That's just life somewhere south of Memphis 
          G 
Where the cotton grows from the Mississippi mud 
        D 
And the blues runs deep in your blood 
  G                             A 
I love this land with God as my witness 
     C    G   D   G                  D 
I'll live and die somewhere south of Memphis 

Instrumental 
G D x2  
G A 
                G 
Yeah, where the cotton grows from the Mississippi mud 
        D 
And the blues runs deep in your blood 
        G                             A 
Well, I love this land with God as my witness 
           C    G    D 
Well, I'll live and die 
                C    G        DGD G                  D      G  C 
I'll said I'll, I'll live and die somewhere south of Memphis 
            D                 
That's just life
