Montgomery To Memphis

Album: Lee Ann Womack (1997)
  • I've got a two room flat with a view of the bridge
    That crosses over into Arkansas
    It's pretty to see all lit up at night
    Tips are good, waitin' tables at a downtown restaurant
    You sound a little surprised that I might be
    Doing all right
    Yeah, this is a big town, and I still
    Get lost sometimes
    A lot has changed since Montgomery and when
    You said goodbye

    Looking back at when I was I can see how
    Far I've come
    From a nobody with a broken heart to feeling
    Like someone
    Now you say you want me back boy let me
    Tell you this
    It's a million miles from Montgomery
    To Memphis

    There's nobody special, I'm not in love
    Hasn't been anyone since you
    Now isn't that what you wanted to hear me say
    No, I've got no plans to be back in Montgomery
    Anytime soon
    Sure, we'll get together if you're headed up this way
    You can probably make it in half a day or so
    But you can't just walk back in again, got a long,
    Long way to go Writer/s: ANNE DELANA REEVES, BILLY MONTANA
