[Intro]
D D/F# G  D D/F# G  D D/F# G  D D/F# G

[Verse]
     D                                 G           D  Dsus2
He’s hold up down on Ramrod Key in the Tavernier Hotel
D                                  A          A7
Livin’ out his loneliness like an oyster in a shell
  D                  D/F#            G               D
By days he pulls the trap lines    By night he lives alone
  D                    D                  A                            D
Don’t really feel like company it’s just him and his fridge.  And his phone

[Chorus]
G          D D/F# G                  D   D/F#  G
Meet Me In Memphis that’s where I’ll be
           D    Bm                  A A7
I’m by the river please come back to me
 G          D D/F# G                 D      D/F# G
Meet Me In Memphis my wild days are through
G           D      Bm A           D
And nothin’ replaces me next to you

[Verse]
D                                     G                        D Dsus2
He’s been there since she ran away   She said, “She needs some space”
D                                                 A            A7
Occasionally she still calls collect   From some god forsaken place
D             D7        D/F# G                 D
Then one day a letter came   Postmarked Tennessee
        D                        D                      A         A7         D
And the envelope scent   And the postage spent  Well it lit up her old memory

[Chorus]
G          D   D/F# G              D D/F# G              D     Bm                A  A7
Meet Me In Memphis that’s what she said   Too much for a letter please come here instead
G           D D/F# G                 D D/F# G
Meet Me In Memphis my wild days are through
G              D   Bm A7          D
Still nothing replaces me next to you

[Instrumental]
  D D/F# G D  D D/F# G   D D/F# Bm A A7   G D D/F# G  D D/F# G  D Bm A A7 D

[Bridge]
  Bm             F#
I know she could break my heart again
        Bm                 E
But I’m gonna play and I’m gonna win
       Em             A7 A7 A7 A7
Where Otis would play                
Em Em Em Em               A7 A7 A7 A7
Da da da dock of the bay

[Chorus]
           D     G                    D     G               D     Bm            A
Meet Me In Memphis that’s where I’ll be         I’m by the river you’re by the sea
A7                      D     G                  D
(Oh please) Meet Me in Memphis my wild days are through
 G            D       Bm    A         D
Still nothing replaces     me next to you

[Whistle "Dock in the Bay" and fade out]
   D G D G D G D
