I?m standing at the gate
Waitin? on my plane

The sky is black
And it?s startin? to rain

Memphis, this May
More than I can take

Think?in of her
& Feel?in?s I can?t shake


She left without warn?in
Back to an empty home
Sit?in on the floor
Never felt so alone

Gonna hop this bird
& just let it be
Rainy day Tennessee
No more you and me


There?s an ache in my life
Don?t think I can stand

To see her again
Lovin? some other man

How could she do it?
Well, now, it?s easy to see

Hit me not look?in
Hell, she never loved me

Just left without warn?in
I walked into an empty home
Knocked to the floor
Never been that alone

Gonna hop this bird
& just let it be
Rainy day Tennessee
No more you and me


Bridge: The people I love
said she'll break your heart...
Should've listened to them from the start

Our dreams were different
And so far apart
This broken man, missed his mark


Acoustic Solo------

Rainy day Tennessee
No more you and me?..

Rainy day Tennessee
No more you and me

Rainy day Tennessee
No more you .....and me
