Bring a drink of water Leroy
If I could get to the mercy man

Bertha is her name
Instead of this ball and chain
I'm goin' to Memphis, that's right Lord, yeah
A dude took all my money
I owe the boss about a hundred years

Yeah I'm goin' to Memphis
Like a bitter weed, I'm a bad seed
Let the honky tonk roll on

But it must be a mighty fine place, that's right
With Mississippi all over my face
I'm goin' to Memphis, that's right Lord, Memphis
Well, the freezin' ground at night
Pork salad is my bread and meat

In a Mr. Prince Albert can
And I believe, he broke my hand
They all call me crazy for sassin' Mr. Scott
But I dis remember what, yeah
Well another boy is down
Let me stand on his body

But when that levee's through and I am too
Come mornin' I'll be gone
I'm goin' to Memphis, yeah Memphis
