Lyrics

[Intro] [Verse 1] Oh, the ragman draws circles Up and down the block I'd ask him what the matter was But I know that he don't talk And the ladies treat me kindly And they furnish me with tape But deep inside my heart I know I can't escape [Chorus] Oh, Mama Can this really be the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 2] Well, Shakespeare, he's in the alley With his pointed shoes and his bells Speaking to some French girl Who says she knows me well And I would send a message To find out if she's talked But the post office has been stolen And the mailbox is locked [Chorus] Oh, Mama Can this really be the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 3] Mona tried to tell me To stay away from the train line She said that all the railroad men Just drink up your blood like wine And I said, "Oh, I didn't know that But then again, there's only one I've met And he just smoked my eyelids And punched my cigarette" [Chorus] Oh, Mama Can this really be the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 4] Grandpa died last week And now he's buried in the rocks But everybody still talks about How badly they were shocked But me, I expected it to happen I knew he'd lost control When I sp— he'd built a fire on Main Street And shot it full of holes [Chorus] Oh, Mama Can this really be the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 5] Now the senator came down here Showing everyone his gun Handing out free tickets To the wedding of his son And me, I nearly got busted And wouldn't it be my luck To get caught without a ticket And be discovered beneath a truck [Chorus] Oh, Mama Is this really the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 6] Now the tea preacher looked so baffled When I asked him why he dressed With twenty pounds of headlines Stapled to his chest But he cursed me when I proved to him Then I whispered, said, "Not even you can hide You see, you're just like me I hope you're satisfied" [Chorus] Oh, Mama Can this really be the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 7] Now the rainman gave me two cures Then he said, "Jump right in" The one was Texas medicine The other was just railroad gin And like a fool I mixed them And it strangled up my mind And now people just get uglier And I have no sense of time [Chorus] Oh, Mama Can this really be the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 8] Now when Ruthie says come see her In her honky-tonk lagoon Where I can watch her waltz for free 'Neath her Panamanian moon And I say, "Aw, come on now You know you know about my debutante" And she says, "Your debutante just knows what you need But I know what you want" [Chorus] Oh, Mama Can this really be the end? To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again [Verse 9] Now the bricks lay on Grand Street Where the neon madmen climb They all fall there so perfectly It all seems so well timed And here I sit so patiently Waiting to find out what price You have to pay to get out of Going through all these things twice [Chorus] Oh, Mama Is this really the end? To be stuck here inside of Mobile With the Memphis blues again
