That's How I Got To Memphis
Written by Tom T. Hall


Chords

Song

1.

If you love somebody enough you'll follow wherever they go,
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis,
If you love somebody enough you'll go where your heart wants to go,
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis.

bridge 1:

I know if you'd seen her you'd tell me 'cause you are my friend,
I've got to find her and find out the trouble she's in,
And if you tell me she' not here you can follow the trail of her tears,
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis.

3.

She'd get mad and she used to say that she'd come back to Memphis some day,
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis,
I haven't eaten a bite or slept for three days and nights,
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis.

bridge 2:

I've got to find her and tell her that I love her so,
I'll never rest till I find out why she had to go,
So thank you for your precious time, forgive me if I start to cryin',
That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis.

coda:

That's how I got to Memphis, that's how I got to Memphis.
