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
