midnight train to memphis lyrics – kid rock

i was hiding from the sun once again
i was running from the time my friend
i’ve lost another war
so, i poured one more and went home drunk again
she was up when the key hit the lock
and the clock looked at me just like the devil in disguise
i saw it in her eyes – she’d be gone before the evenin’

so, i poured another strong one and chopped a line from here to texas
cause i’ve lost another good one – she’s on the midnight train to memphis
with a brand new start, i swore i’d love from the heart
i meant to change my ways
but i’ve seen better days than the one’s that’s here this mornin’
with a wife and kids at home with a job some where on some *ssembly line
i wish i had that life – i bet you wish you had mine
so, let’s pour another tall one and chop a line from here to texas
cause i’ve lost another good one – she’s on the midnight train to memphis

[david spade]
dude, what station is this? k snooze?
kid rock i thought he was the american bad *ss
he’s putting me to sleep. nudge me if he gets over five decibals.
i knew his first alb*m was a good one

but that’s the way i am
and this is how i jam
all across the land from alabam to bandstand
doped up rebel with an att*tude
sh*t
so f*ck a b*tch
so f*ck a b*tch
so f*ck a b*tch
i won’t switch won’t quit my vices
flip the script cause i’m gonna slice the righteous
haven’t you heard i don’t refrain
free as a bird and so i won’t change
livin it up givin it up f*ckin sh*t up
what
i’m gonna run my track from the d to nantucket
so f*ck it – if you don’t dig that, you can suck it.

and it don’t
and it don’t

with an old suitcase, i swear i’ll leave this place
i’ll get you back in time
can’t drink you off my mind. so, i’ll see you when i’m sober.
i been looking for some reasons, but i ain’t found one down in texas
i been changing with the seasons
walked in a new line back to memphis.
