Over The Rhine - The King Knows How Lyrics

I feel as lonely, as anybody
As crying on the Friday night,
Once in a while, on my radio dial,
I accidentally get it right.

Chorus:
I’m thinking I might be tempted to slide on over,
Slide on over!
I’m thinking I need a little something to tide me over,
Tide me over,
Till Memphis!

You know that lonesome whipporwill
I know a girl who is bluer still

It’s that a jukebox altar call?
Or just a soft, smoking place to fall?

Chorus:
I’m thinking I might be tempted to slide on over,
Slide on over!
I’m thinking I need a little something to tide me over,
Tide me over,
Till Memphis!

Cause the king knows how
to take me all the way!
Yeah the king knows how
(the king knows how)
To take me all the way
To Memphis!

I feel as lonely, as anybody…
Who's crying on a Friday night.
I’m not laughing,
Because it’s funny,
Hank is laughing cause he’s always right!

Chorus:
I’m thinking I might be tempted to slide on over,
Slide on over!
I’m thinking I need a little something to tide me over.
Over Memphis!

You strike a match boy
But do you know how
To burn it all the way
Down to Memphis”

Cause the king knows how
The king knows how
To take me all the way
Yeah the king knows how,
To take me all the way
To Memphis!
The king knows how,
The king knows how,
The king knows how,
To take me all the way
To take me all the way
To take me all the way
To Memphis!
