10 Miles South of Nowhere

Purchase on  The Queen of the Western Hemisphere - Big Medicine Head  and all online music stores

Well I’ve never been to Memphis
but I kind of like the drawl
I’ll drink with any man who knows
the Lonesome Desert Crawl
I know some words
but I don’t know them all
I like my baby
stupid poetry and all
I’m 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar

I rolled out of suburbia
at half past 24
I had a couple beers
I had a couple more
I lost my way
someone nail me to the wall
I’m legless now
I’m learning how to crawl
I’m 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar

I danced with blind Republicans
I mowed the White House lawn
I drank like Frank Sinatra
‘til the cops showed up at dawn
I ruled the world
yeah, I was feeling pretty good
I scored some points when no one thought I would
I’m 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar

Well I’ve never been to Memphis
guess I’ll never get there now
I’ll look just like a ghost
when I’m passing through your town
but I ran with Kings
and I slummed with movie stars
now I’m just a phantom on the tar
I’m 10 miles south of nowhere
10 miles from the nearest bar
