LyricsEdit

Baseball season will be starting soon
But we have no baseball team here
I've got a house right on the river
I can see Arkansas from where I am

The dogs are gathering
And the birds are chattering
And the sun is setting on Memphis
And the sun is setting on Memphis

Medicine bottle collection on the windowsill
Shakes when the cars go past on interstate fifty-five
You are standing above me
You've washed your face with that apricot scrub again
I'm glad I am alive
And your skin is warming up
And my skin is warming up
And the sun is setting on Memphis
And the sun is setting on Memphis
