the day since I met her
i can't believe it's true
she came here from memphis
across the ocean

sailing and i saw her and i pleaded
why do you come so far and she said

C#m              E
trying to get to you
C#m                   E
how i tried to get to you
C#m              E
trying to get to you

i'm sending a letter
i'll send it right to you
i'll send it to memphis
i know that someday

everything i needed and i wanted
used to be that in my head was haunted

[with Rhythm Figure 1]
and all these sirens they make me mad
and all this violence it brings me down
i feel strong
i feel lucky


trying to get to you
said i'm going to get to you
trying to get to you
