Memphis in June, 
  Dm7     Cm7
A shady veranda 
Bbmaj7  B9-5        Bb   Dm7  Ebmaj7  F6/9
under a Sunday blue sky
Bbmaj7     Cm7
Memphis in June
    Dm7    Cm7
And cousin Amanda's
Bb   /d   Ebmaj7 F7  Eb Dm7-Cm7 Bb   A7-9 
 making a rhubarb    pie
Dm                     Dmmaj7  Dm7           Dm6 
I can hear the clock inside  a-ticking and a-tocking
Bb9           A7         Dm6        E7  A7-5/d#
Everything is peacefully dandy
Dm            Dmmaj7            Dm7            Dm6
I can see old granny 'cross the street still a rocking
F    Dm      Gm         C7 F7sus4  F7        
Watching the neighbours go by 
Bbmaj7     B9-5
Memphis in June
     Bbmaj7  Cm7 F9
With sweet oleander 
Bbmaj7     B9-5        Bbmaj7    Cm9  F
blowing perfume in the air 
Bbmaj7   B9  Bb9
Up jumps the moon 
   Dm7-5   Eb9   Dm7  Cm7   Ab9
to make it that much grander
Bbmaj7    Eb6/Bb
 It's paradise 
         Bbmaj7    Eb6/Bb
brother, take my advice 
          Bbmaj7  Eb6          F7sus4
nothing's half as nice as Memphis
