E                              Ab
  Staring down the blacktop at a cold dark night, boys
A                             F#
Pitch black sky there ain't a star in sight
        E
But I'm looking for a change
   B7                              E      B7
I'm passing through Memphis in the rain

E                               Ab
  Whitewashed buildings and old overgrown yards
         A                               F#
I've got one hand on the wheel, I've got one on my heart
              E
Looking for a girl without a name
   B7                              E
I'm passing through Memphis in the rain

A/E                                  E
  But no matter what I do, Lord, I can't stop
A/E
  Gotta keep that hammer to the floor baby
B7
  Until I'm clear out of Arkansas, mama cause

E                      Ab
  I know what they can do to me, Lord and I

Won't let them make a fool out of me
           E
Things are starting to get strange
B7                               E       B7
  Passing through Memphis in the rain

A/E                                         E
  Sometimes a man's just gotta know when to go
A/E                         
  He's gotta earn himself a keepin', baby
B7
  He's gotta know when he's been beaten

So I called a cousin down in Houston
        A                         F#
He said "come on down boy, we got work for you to be doing"
    E
I'm looking for a change

Yeah things are startin' to get strange
    B7                             E
I'm passing through Memphis in the rain
