MIRACLE IN MEMPHIS
(Lee Rocker - Slim Jim Phantom)
LEE ROCKER (DIXIEFROG RECORDS, 1997)

Well, there's a jukebox in the corner
Played it million times
I just heard the new one
Blue moon of Kentucky shine
The world stops spinning
For a minute it was clear
Finally I heard the music that I've been waiting to hear

There's a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There's nothing you can do
There's a miracle in Memphis
Burnin' down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done

The hand of God came down and touched me
Angels trumpets blared
Took the train into the city
Cut off all my hair
Baggy pants and pointed shoes
A thriftstore houndstooth coat
Grabbed the one way ticket
On that big wheel river boat

There's a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There's nothing you can do
There's a miracle in Memphis
Burnin' down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done

Now, I can't never go back
Now, I threw away the map
I've heard the voice, seen the light
They call me the hillbilly cat
Got to take the message
Spread the word across the see
To the non believers
Let the music carry me

There's a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There's nothing you can do
There's a miracle in Memphis
Burnin' down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done

There's a miracle in Memphis
Shine a light on you
Once the spirit grabs you
There's nothing you can do
There's a miracle in Memphis
Burnin' down at Sun
I just heard the message and I knew what must be done
