This Far from Memphis

Album: Easton Corbin (2010)
  • She said goodbye in Tallahassee
    I just crawled in my truck
    Set my mind on Miami
    And my sights on better luck

    Ain't a man deserves to hurt like this
    It's a lonely place, it sure is
    Guess I never really knew the blues
    Ever got this far from Memphis

    All the night life and the beaches
    Couldn't soothe my achin' soul
    And how I ended up in Key West
    God and the liquor only know

    Ain't a man deserves to hurt like this
    It's a lonely place, it sure is
    Guess I never really knew the blues
    Ever got this far from Memphis

    Now I've run out of road
    So I guess my only hope
    Is to trade this truck for a boat

    Ain't a man deserves to hurt like this
    It's a lonely place, it sure is
    Guess I never really knew the blues
    Ever got this far from Memphis

    Ever got this far from Memphis
    Man, I'm a long ways from Memphis Writer/s: Carson Chamberlain, Easton Corbin, Mark David Sanders
