Memphis Town - Leroy Carr
Piano in C, Scrapper Blackwell, guitar in A position, standard tuning, in C

Went to the station to get me a train
Gonna climb aboard and ride again
Just climb aboard and ride around
I might get off at Memphis Town

Memphis Town, Memphis Town
All trains goin' to Memphis Town
Shovel in the coal, see the wheels go round
Spoken aside: Lord
Lord, everybody's goin' down to Memphis Town

I said conductor, "Where are the trains all gwine"?
"I want to go to see that girl of mine"
He answered me with a railroad frown
"All trains gwine to Memphis Town"

Memphis Town, Memphis Town
All trains goin' to Memphis Town
Shovel in the coal, see the wheels go round
Spoken aside: Lord
Lord, everybody's goin' down to Memphis Town

I said "What's doin' down old Memphis way?
There's trains all goin' there today"
The trainman said, "There's a Jubilee"
"And Memphis's Town is the only place for me"

Memphis Town, Memphis Town
All trains goin' to Memphis Town
Shovel in the coal, see the wheels go round
Spoken aside: Lord
Lord, everybody's goin' down to Memphis Town

I said to the station man, "Where's my train?"
He said "I never knowed you owned a train"
I said "You better answer or I'll smack you down"
He said "All trains goin' to Memphis Town"

Memphis Town, Memphis Town
All trains goin' to Memphis Town
Shovel in the coal, see the wheels go round
Spoken aside: Lord
Lord, everybody's goin' down to Memphis Town

Goodbye folks, I'm on my way
See you all some other day
Got my ticket, here's my train
Goin' down to Memphis to see my girl again

Memphis Town, Memphis Town
All trains goin' to Memphis Town
Shovel in the coal, see the wheels go round
Spoken aside: Lord
Lord, everybody's goin' down to Memphis Town
