E                             
Well, there is only one reason I stop in this place
                                B
Let me stress that it ain’t the cuisine
The eggs are all runny, the hash browns smell funny and
                       E
The coffee tastes like gasoline

          E      
But there goes the one thing that I’ve been looking forward to
                         B
For the last six-hundred miles
In a slow motion pan with 8 beers in each hand
                             E
What’s here of heaven in her smile

           E         B           E
She is the prettiest waitress in Memphis
      Fm                        B
And I think she’s flirting with me
Readin’ them specials- extra special
                                   E
She slipped a finger into my sweet tea
         E
O’ but a small stack of singles from a hard double-shift
                             B
Will do terrible things to a smile
And the prettiest waitress in Memphis knows
                          E (intro riff)
She’s only that way for a while

Somehow she remembered my name though its been
Several months since I passed through this way
She said she’s lived here all her twenty three years
I said I’d be here for a day

Ordered the pecan pie and with a wink of an eye
Got a slice as big as my head
And her name and her number on a Sweet-n-Low package
Is the best poem that I’ve ever read

She’s the prettiest waitress in Memphis,
And I know she's flirtin' with me.
Been reading them specials, extra special.
Slipped a finger into my sweet tea.
O' but a small stack of singles from a hard double-shift
Will do terrible things to her smile.
And the prettiest waitress in Memphis knows,
She's only that way for a while.

Well, the prettiest waitress in Memphis
Spilled her heart all over me
As I held her that night in a way she was right when she said,
“This will all change eventually”

Cause she ain’t the prettiest waitress in Memphis no more
But it’s not what you’re thinking- you see
The prettiest waitress in Memphis just quit
And she’s leaving Memphis with me

The prettiest ex-waitress in all of Memphis is
Leaving Memphis with me.

Should the Fm be an F#m?
