MEMPHIS IN THE MEANTIME
John Hiatt
Album: Greatest Hits
Submitted by: christopher r.
August 27, 2003

Intro:  (E)  (E)  (E)  (E)  (twice)


(E) I got something to say little girl
You might not like my style
But we've been hanging around this town
Just a little too long a while
 
You (A) say you're gonna get your (D) act together
Gonna (A) take it out on the road
But if I dont get (E) outta here pretty soon
My head's going to explode
 
Sure (B) I like country music
I like mandolins
But right (A) now I need a tele(D)caster
Through a vibro(A)lux turned up to ten
 
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl
 
I (E) need a little shot of that rhythm baby
Mixed up with these country blues
I wanna trade in these ol cowboy boots
For some fine italian shoes
 
For(A)get the mousse and the (D) hairspray sugar
We (A) dont need none of that
Just a (E) little dab'll do ya girl
Underneath a pork pie hat
 
Un(B)til hell freezes over
Maybe you can wait that long
But I (A) dont think Ronnie (D) Milsap's gonna (A) ever
Record this song

Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

(A) Maybe there's (D) nothin' happenin' (A) there
Maybe there's (D) somethin' in the (A) air (E)
(A) Before our (D) upper lips get (A) stiff
Maybe we (D) need us a big ol (A) whiff (E)

If we could (E) just get off-a that beat little girl
Maybe we could find the groove
At least we can get a decent meal
Down at the Rendez-vous
 
Cause (A) one more heartfelt (D) steel guitar chord
(A) Girl, it's gonna do me in
I need to (E) hear some trumpet and saxophone
You know sound as sweet as sin
 
And after (B) we get good and greasy
Baby we can come back home
Put the (A) cowhorns back on the (D) cadillac
And change the (A) message on the cord-a-phone

Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl
Lets go to (E) Memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

Repeat and fade...
