Lyrics

Memphis you took my life when the bullet hit the bone
An April day fell dark and then 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 my why
Sing high sing high sing high
Tell my 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 it real
We climbed up the ladder 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 my why
Sing high sing high sing high
Tell my 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 theirs just one thing I gotta know before I go

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