They Never Made It To Memphis Recorded by Mickey Gilley Written by Jan Buckingham and Karen Staley
C Well she left St. Louis in a Pontiac Tempest
Had her road map open red-lined down to Memphis F He was smokin' down the highway in a blue Cadillac C He smiled as he passed her and she smiled back G7 They made a little stop at the Dove Cafe C And they drank black coffee to pass the time away
She said I'm going to see Elvis make my dream come true
He said I can't believe it that's been my dream too F They started talking 'bout the money they'd save C If they rode together for the rest of the way G7 They stopped to throw a penny in a wishing well C That sat out in the yard of a little motel
F C They never made it to Memphis they never saw the king G7 C He saw a chance at heaven she saw a wedding ring F C They got as far as the altar it was a fast affair G7 C They never made it to Memphis but they didn't care
Well they couldn't understand how the time had flown
It was nineteen-ninety and the kids were grown F One day she admitted she still had that dream C Bout heading down south to see the home of the king G7 They dropped off the dog with old Auntie Kate C And headed down to Graceland twenty years late
Well as soon as they hit that open road
Every twist and turn reminded them of long ago F He was thinking 'bout the kisses that he used to steal C It was getting real hard to keep his hands on the wheel
G7 She looked as good to him now as she did back then C And they were sweet sixteen all over again
F C They never made it to Memphis they never saw the king G7 C They made a little detour at the Dairy Queen F C They found the Wishing Well Motel it was still there G7 C They never made it to Memphis but they didn't care
G7 C They never made it to Memphis but they didn't care
