"A Mile Out Of Memphis" lyrics

A Mile Out Of Memphis

(With Paul Simon)

She told me she was leaving
I said, "Honey, that'd be fine"
Guess I never thought she'd make it
To that city limit sign
Lord, I waited twenty minutes
I thought she'd come running back
But this fool got fooled
Cause she's
Already out there making tracks

She's just a mile outside of Memphis
And I'm already out of my mind
Lord, I must have lost my senses
To let that pretty girl leave me behind

Oh, I wish that I could stop her
But I know that it's too late
Her mind's made up
She's headed down that Interstate
She's a mile out of Memphis
And I'm already out of my mind
Yeah, she's gone

I gave her headaches and heartaches
Until she'd had enough
She laid her cards on the table
Oh, that's when she called my bluff
Oh, I never should have gambled
What I could not stand to lose
Now I know why they call Memphis
The home of the blues

She's in a mile outside of Memphis
And I'm already out of my mind
Lord, I must have lost my senses
To let that pretty girl leave me behind

Oh, I wish that I could stop her
But I know that it's too late
Her mind's made up
She's trucking down that Interstate
She's in a mile out of Memphis
And I'm already out of my mind
She's gone this time
