Song Description

Lonely guy missing his former life in Memphis with a lost love. Really simple song about feeling alone. Concept inspired by "Walking in Memphis" but taken a different way. This person had everything, all the magic that is love and the city of Memphis, but he lost it.

Story Behind the Song

I love songs about places especially Memphis. It has such a history of music. Blues, Elvis, Sun Records, etc. I love Marc Cohn's walking in Memphis and I just wrote off of that idea.

Lyrics

On Nights Like This

laramie mixon

On nights like this.
I get drunk on Lead Belly songs,
Missing that street,
missing that town,
missing that feeling,
missing that sound.
I'm missing you, the most I...Guess...
On Nights like this.....

On nights like this,
We would go down,
Walk that street,
It was our town,
Never will forget that feeling,
Breathing in those sounds,
The moon's slow southern kiss,........
On Nights like this......

(chorus)
On nights like this,
I close my eyes,
I'm walking down Beale,
You're by my side,
The river sounds so clear,
Bar-B-Que & Gospel in the air,
Memphis at it's best,
Can I get an amen,
I need an amen,
On nights like this.....
On nights like this.....

On nights like this,
Words not said, I regret,
I miss my love,
I miss my soul,
I miss my life,
I miss our home,
True feelings get dismissed,
On nights like this

(chorus)
On nights like this,
I close my eyes,
I'm walking down Beale,
You're by my side,
The river sounds so clear,
Bar-B-Que & Gospel in the air,
Memphis at it's best,
Can I get an amen,
I need an amen,
On nights like this.....
On nights like this.....


On nights like this,
I can't believe we're apart,
You didn't slip through my fingers,
it was more of a drop,
I know everything I miss,
On nights like this.....

(chorus)
On nights like this,
I close my eyes,
I'm walking down Beale,
You're by my side,
The river sounds so clear,
Bar-B-Que & Gospel in the air,
Memphis at it's best,
Can I get an amen,
I need an amen,
On nights like this.....
On nights like this.....

Can I get an amen,
I need an amen,
On nights like this....
