    Lyrics

    Low down dealin's in Memphis
    A card game in a back room
    I was lookin' at my last dollar
    Hopin' lady luck would come by soon

    I played out on the east side
    Till I heard my reputation was in doubt
    It was starting to look like a bad ride
    It looked like time for gettin' out

    They raised the betting limit
    The cards were falling fast
    I bet away my future,
    I already lost my past

    Now I can't go back to Memphis
    I played out every game
    I can't go back to Memphis
    Everybody knows my name
    Too many people wanna even out the score
    And I can't go back to Memphis no more

    I did my best to beat the system
    But the system put me back in my palace
    They maintained a delicate balance
    Where no one got in nobody's face
    I was tryin' to make a dollar
    Just survivin' in the street
    I fought the gangs, I fought the law
    But they both had me beat

    Now I can't go back to Memphis
    I played out every game
    I can't go back to Memphis
    Everybody knows my name
    Too many people wanna even out the score
    And I can't go back to Memphis no more

    I can't go back to Memphis
    I can't go back to Memphis

    No, no, I can't go back to Memphis
    No, no, no, no I can't go back to Memphis
    No, no, no, no
    Too many people wanna even out the score
    And I can't go back to Memphis no more
