Running Man and I decided it would be fun
to explore a city we had never been to before.
It's known for the sounds of the Delta Blues,
and home of the King
That's right, we
were walking in Memphis
Blue Suede Shoes.
Memphis isn't a beautiful city.
It's a city that's had its ups and downs.
It sits along the Mississippi River
or the "Big Muddy" where the water
is too thin to plow
and too thick to drink.
There's music spilling out of
all the clubs on Beale Street
"with a whole lot of shaken going on"
(Jerry Lee Lewis)
and did I mention BBQ?
There's the legendary Sun Studio
where Elvis cut his first record
And, of course, if you're a fan, a trip of Graceland
is a must,
to pay respect to the
King of Rock and Roll.
You might even get to see that famous
And if you're tired of BBQ
there's always fried chicken at Gus's.
There's also a serious side to Memphis
and the site of the assassination of
Martin Luther King Jr.
Just the day before, Martin Luther King
gave his last speech,
"I have been to the Mountain top."
Well, let's just say,
despite not having on blue suede shoes,
we were walking in Memphis,
the land of the Delta Blues,
and we had a fantastic time,
but not a whole lot of sewin' goin' on!
Until Next Time-
