I heard how all the lights went out in Memphis
The pretenders talking dirty in the palace

All the renegades have finally settled down
And desecrate the holy heart of town
Can't you hear all those sweet voices singing?
Can't you hear all those mission bells ringin'?

Yet they cast a giant shadow on the land
And bury all our secrets in the sand
Now they claim there is a message in the Bible
But the future's lookin' dim for the lonesome cowboy
