Memphis Son

Music & Lyrics Paul Dougherty

Fat in California but skinny in Texas
Driving out of town, chasing down the ghost of Elvis
Born and raised and paid a lot of dues in Dallas
Make a brand new start in the Delta land of Memphis

And I know that he’s in Graceland
That Memphis son, shine on everyone
And I hope he hears what I’m singing
That favorite son, that favorite son

Ch
Fat in California but skinny in Texas
Driving out of town, chasing down the ghost of Elvis
Born and raised and paid a lot of dues in Dallas
Make a brand new start in the Delta land of Memphis

That Memphis son, that Memphis son
Let him run
That Memphis son, that Memphis son
Let him run

Br
Driving down that highway
Cadillac burning up that road
The radio plays My Way
In that land of Delta gold

Ch
Fat in California but skinny in Texas
Driving out of town, chasing down the ghost of Elvis
Born and raised and paid a lot of dues in Dallas
Make a brand new start in the Delta land of Memphis

That Memphis son, that Memphis son
That Memphis son, that Memphis son
