On the Joe Esposito "A Friend Rmembers" show, it had Tamara Walker singing "Gonna Cry Like Memphis." LOVE IT! Couldn't find it on YouTube. If anyone comes up with a video or audio of her singing it, please post here.

Here are the words:

Quote:
"Cry Like Memphis"
(G. Duffy / R. Wallace)

Cry Like Memphis


Home of the blues is where I live
Trapped inside these lonely walls that won't forget
Surrounded by old memories
Your goodbye haunts me like a Beale Street melody
I've done everything but get down on my knees
And if these tears can set this ghost inside me free

(Chorus)
I'm gonna cry like Memphis
I'm going three times under
Gonna drown my sorrow
In tears that roll like thunder
Til I can find the strength
Til I can carry on
I'm gonna cry like Memphis
When they heard The King was gone

(Inst)

Love Me Tender cuts through the dark
Coming from an open window of a passing car
And In that moment I believe
I can almost feel your body lying next to me
But one heart beating slowly brings me back around
I know you're gone and I know I'm breaking down .....
And when I break down

(Repeat Chorus)

(Inst.)

Til I can find the strength
Til I can carry on
I'm gonna cry like Memphis
When they heard The King was gone

(©Westwood Int'l. Records (BMI))
