Headin’ up river
To the city of the Kings
Goin’ up to Memphis
Leavin’ outta New Orleans
Wanna stand on the levee
Watch that mighty river run
It’s a slow trip up the river
As we watch the setting sun

Paddle wheels turnin’
Hot sun’s burnin’
All the way up to Memphis
The cotton field’s sprawlin’
The crossroads callin’ my name
All the way up to Memphis

As we’re passin’ thru Natchez Lord, is it true what they say
Headed for the Delta Where all my heroes learned to play
Rollin’ up the river, lord, It takes my breath away
Headin’ for Memphis on a sultry southern day


When I see the lights of Memphis I swear I hear them play
The way it makes me feel, Words will never say
Walkin’ up Beale Street I finally made it where the blues were made And the sounds of the city Hope it never goes away
