Over The Rhine

Over The Rhine - The King Knows How

rate me

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!
