Lyrics

Memphis you took my life when the bullet hit the bone
An April day turned dark and I fell like a stone
With my good friends all around me, I heard an angel cry
Memphis you took my life, Memphis tell me why

Tell me why, Tell me why
Tell me why, Lord tell me why
Sing high, sing high, sing high
Tell me why, Oh lord tell me why

Memphis, I feel those chains dragging across the cotton fields
My brothers and my sisters is this a dream or is this real?
We climbed up that mountain and almost touched the sky
Memphis you took my life, Memphis tell me why

Tell me why, Tell me why
Tell me why, Lord tell me why
Sing high, sing high, sing high
Tell me why, Oh lord Tell me why

Memphis I have a dream, hate couldn’t make it die
Just listen to the bells ring across the amber sky
I guess it takes a village, so let the rivers flow
Memphis there's just one thing I gotta know before I go

Tell me why, Tell me why
Tell me why. Lord tell me why
Sing high, sing high, sing high
Tell me why, Oh lord tell me why
