18 MILES TO MEMPHIS
(Brian Setzer)
THE STRAYCATS (EMI, 1983)

We've been driving all night long
Just to reach our destination in your town
We've been five hundred miles
Everyones asleep, there's not a sound
Ooh, eighteen weels a-rolling
Eighteen weels a-rolling 'round and 'round

Please mister driver
Won't you pull over here, we're really hungry
Yeah, well we'll have 14 steak and eggs
14 orange juice and 14 cups of coffee
Let's get back on the bus
This is one place that I really wanna see

Well, we're 18 miles from Memphis
18 miles from Memphis
Yeah, 18 miles from Memphis
18 miles from Memphis
A rocket in my pocket and I hit the fuse
Taking off in your direction, have you heard the news
We're just 18 miles from Memphis
And I won't leave till I've rocked you all

Alabama, Missisippi, Florida, Louisiana, big 'ol Texas
From New England down to Georgia
Kansas City, Colorado, California
Well, it's the last night of our tour,
We're gonna rock you thru the roof
Just wait and see

Yeah, we're 18 miles from Memphis
18 miles from Memphis
Ooh, 18 miles from Memphis
18 miles from Memphis
Yeah, 18 miles from Memphis
18 miles from Memphis
Ooh, 18 miles from Memphis
18 miles from Memphis
Well we're 18 miles from Memphis
And we won't leave till we've rocked you all
