Maybe It Was Memphis

G  G*   G  G*
(intro)

G                        G                G                    C
Looking at you through a misty moonlight, katydids sing like a symphony
G                          G              G                       C
Porch swing swaying like a Tenn. lullaby, melody blowing thru the willow tree
D            C              D                C
  What was I s'posed to do,   standing there looking at you
D         F           G    G*
  Lonely boy far from home

             G        G              C                C
Maybe it was Memphis,   maybe it was southern summer nights
             Am7               C                    G     G*
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right

Read about you in a Faulkner novel, met you once in a Williams play
Heard about you in a country love song, summer night beauty took my breath away
What was I s'posed to do, standing there looking at you
Lonely boy far from home

Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right

(Guitar solo, same chords as chorus; see tab at end)

Every night now since I've been back home, lie awake drifting in my memory
Think about you on my mama's front porch swing, talking that way, so soft to me
What was I s'posed to do, standing there looking at you
Lonely boy so far from home

Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
Maybe it was Memphis, maybe it was southern summer nights
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
             Am7               C               G          G*
Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, but it sure felt right
G    C/G                      G     G*
Ohhh,   you know it sure felt right
G    C/G           G       G*
  Oh, maybe it was Memphis
G  C/G             G       G*
      Maybe it was Memphis
G  C/G             G       G*
      Maybe it was Memphis
G  C              G       G*   G  C                  G     G*
     Maybe it was Memphis           But it sure felt right    (repeat/fade)
