Christmas In Memphis

©1985 Singles Only Music, BMI

By Michael Porter & Stephony Smith

It’s December Twenty-Four

Just Like All The Ones Before

This One Is Different

Seems Like Everyone I See

Makes A Point of Wishing Me

A Merry Christmas

*It’s Not The Presents Or The Lights Up On The Trees

It’s Not the Santas Ringing Bells Out In The Streets

It’s That I’m Home and There’s No Place I’d Rather Be

Because It’s Christmas in Memphis

Christmas In Memphis

Christmas in Memphis, Tennessee

Once Again It Didn’t Snow

And I Turn on My Radio

And “Blue Christmas” Plays

When the Clock Rolls Past The Twelve

We Put Time Put Up On A Shelf

Just For A Day

*Repeat Chorus

On This Silent Night Hear The Church Bells Ring

As the River Goes By Caroling

There’s Not A Stranger Tonight In This Town On The Bluff

A Star Shines Bright As A Symbol of Love

*Repeat Chorus

The Knowers of Things

The Knowers of Things

He Holds Out His Coffee Cup

To Get His Free Re-fill

While His Buddy Says “I Guess It’s Time

For My Blood Pressure Pill”

They Might Look Like Two Old Coots

Just Blowin’ Their Smoke Rings

But To Me They Are The Knowers of Things

*They Know How To Build A House

They Know How To Fix A Car

They Know What It’s Like To Lose A Friend Beside You In A War

They Know Hard Times Means Santa Claus Has Nothing Left To Bring

They Are The Knowers of Things

Every Day They Cut Up

In That Same Old Corner Booth

These Men That Time Has Written Off

As Too Long In The Tooth

But In My Eyes They’re Holding Court

Just Like They Were Kings

For To Me They Are The Knowers of Things

*Repeat Chorus

Yeah, They Talk Loud

Cause They’re Half Deaf

And One Day If You’re Lucky

You Might Just Be One Yourself

*Repeat Chorus
