lyrics

Take the rest, (believe I've) had my fill
Take it down to where the boys are laying still

Can't figure where to go
Can't say just how much it shows

But I can say that surely if I stay
That you would only bear the worst
The awful brunt of what the others might say
And wouldn't that bear quite a thirst

Can't figure what's to become
When it's hard enough to say just what we done

So if I don't see you before you see them
Do give my best to those giving friends
And tell them 'Memphis'
Though I am down the road a little ways
