What a great one-off hit for American singer, Marc Cohn. Apart from it being a cracking tune, the lyrics are really illustrative of so much of what we associate with Memphis.

There are several articles on the internet where the meaning of so many lines and phrases in this song are explained … well worth looking into when you have half an hour.

Great song … and yes, I know. Cher also recorded this song but her version didn’t chart (and wasn’t as good as Cohn’s).
