MAKE IT BACK TO MEMPHIS - Hot Grubb 

 A 
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
 A                                         E7
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
A                                       D
If I can make it back to Memphis I'll never do nothing like this
A                            E              A
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time

A
I went down to the corner and called my buddy Ray
   A                                        E7
I said it was a bad idea but let's do it anyway
 A                                                  D
So we called in sick and put a twenty in the cadil-lac
    A                          E                  A
A hurried  note to my baby I swear I'll be right back
A
He started driving south on highway 61
 A                                       E7
It's been a long time since we made this run
  A                                                       D
They got River Boat gambling and tunes along the Missis-sippi
       A                  E           A
and I pray to God, Lady Luck is with me

 A 
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
 A                                         E7
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
A                                       D
If I can make it back to Memphis I'll never do nothing like this
A                            E              A
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time

I had a little luck early in the night
A                                           E7
I was up a thousand dollars but high as a kite
        A                                          D
Well I blew it all on one last hand of  Texas Hold Em
     A                                  E        A
I should have listened to my gut - it said, fold em
    A 
I wasn't keeping track  just how much I drank
 A                                                 E7
I should have snuck in another 20 and raised that bank
           A                                                      D
Well the needle is now on empty I can see it by the light of the moon
    A                                                E          A
And if I make it back to Memphis I'm gonna have to make it on fumes

 A 
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
 A                                         E7
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
A                                       D
If I can make it back to Memphis I'll never do nothing like this
A                            E              A
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
A                                       D
If I can make it back to Memphis I'll never do nothing like this
A                            E              A
If I can make it back to Memphis one more time
