MAYBE IT WAS MEMPHIS (by Michael Anderson; recorded by Pam Tillis)
[Actually in A; capo 2.]
[Each chord is half a measure.]
[The little melody thing in the intro (and elsewhere) is just G and Gsus4;
 do it by using your index finger to switch back and forth quickly from
 3x0003 to 320013.  I marked it in the chords as G*.]


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]





GUITAR SOLO TAB:

* It's probably actually played in A with no capo, but I find it easier in G.
  (I got this by translating some piano sheet music into tablature.)
* "tri" denotes sixteenth-note triplets.  "triplets" are eighth triplets.
* The marks below the tab lines are timing; they're mostly accurate.
* An equal sign (=) is a hammer-on or pull-off.  When there wasn't room for
  the marker, I put the numbers and equal signs in parentheses below the tab.
  I did that so that 1=0 wouldn't be confused with the number 10 (ten).
