INTRO: A D Am Gbm D A E A Gbm A

A                       Gbm        A
I've been struggling up here, just trying to 

make a living.
A                             D         A
Everybody wants to take it, nobody like giving.
I wish I was back in Memphis, back home with 
        Bm D
my Mama.
    G              Gbm          A
The only clothes I got now that ain't rags is 

my pajamas.
   E         A        E
No brotherly love, no help, no danger..just a 
A         E            A
great big town full of cold hearted strangers.

       Am                     A
I went hungry in New York and Chicago was no better.
But today, my dear mother wrote and told me in her 

      D       E                   D
Said, come on back to Memphis and live here with your 

        A         C             D
You can walk down Beale Street, honey, wearing your 
    D    E
You know folks down here, we let you do just like you 

want to.
      A                                  D      A
And I born you and raised you right here on the corner.

INTERLUDE: A D A Gbm D Bm D Am A E A G Am A Gbm A Am A

I'm going back to Memphis, back home to my mama.
          D            A                E    A
I'm going to ride that bus back home in my pyjamas.
