Schwa Lyrics

Memphis in the Meantime

Lyricist: John Hiatt
Vocalist: John Mullins
I got something to say little girl
You might not like my style
But weve been hanging around this town
Just a little too long a while

You say youre gonna get your act together
Gonna take it out on the road
But if I dont get outta here pretty soon
My heads going to explode

Sure I like country music
I like mandolins
But right now I need a telecaster
Through a vibro-lux turned up to ten

Lets go to memphis in the meantime baby
Memphis in the meantime girl

I need a little shot of that rhythm baby
Mixed up with these country blues
I wanna trade in these ol country boots
For some fine italian shoes

Forget the mousse and the hairspray sugar
We dont need none of that
Just a little dabll do ya girl
Underneath a pork pie hat

Until hell freezes over
Maybe you can wait that long
But I dont think ronnie milsaps gonna ever
Record this song

Chorus twice

Maybe theres nothin happenin there
Maybe theres somethin in the air
Before our upper lips get stiff
Maybe we need us a big ol whiff

If we could just get off-a that beat little girl
Maybe we could find the groove
At least we can get a decent meal
Down at the rendez-vous

cause one more heartfelt steel guitar chord
Girl, its gonna do me in
I need to hear some trumpet and saxophone
You know sound as sweet as sin

And after we get good and greasy
Baby we can come back home
Put the cowhorns back on the cadillac
And change the message on the cord-a-phone
