Sammy Hagar - Halfway To Memphis Lyrics




Halfway to Memphis, drivin' in the rain
Self confidence slippin', still runnin' away
From the face in the mirror, the lines on the face
From New York City to the San Francisco Bay

From the ghost in the closet
The monkey on your back
From the one that really knows you
Been there watchin' your back
But the fire in your belly still burns

Just be yourself
You're like no one else
There's nobody like you
You can't find it on the shelf

Just let the world know
That you're ready for show
Count three and let go
Before you turn around and go home
Turn around, baby

Down by the lilikoi near the old stone wall
There time stands still, yet the water still falls
There nothing much changes but the seasons still change
Just wishin' and hopin' to break even again

You take these things with you
You take 'em to the heart
But take nothing for granted
Well, there's a good place to start
Until you feel light circle again

Just be yourself
You're like no one else
There's nobody like you
You can't find it on the shelf

Just let the world know
That you're ready for show
Count three and let go
Before you turn around and go home

There ain't no sanctuary
Young [Jeff Buckley] blood
You're halfway to Memphis
In the Mississippi mud

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Be yourself
You're like no one else
There's nobody like you
You can't find it on the shelf

Just let the world know
That you're ready for show
Count three and let go
Before you turn around and go home

Turn yourself around and get back home
Just turn around and go home

  1. BLUEZ JOURNEY MUZIC

    AWESOME!!!!

  2. switch it

    That was killer !!!

  3. SuperGaleford

    I think Sammy gets overlooked as being a singer-songwriter.

  4. SuperGaleford

    Hey, Sammy, can I have that 12-string please? 😏

    SuperGaleford

    Please?

    Jay L Keene

    Ya, What's your address?  he'll FedX it as soon as he has that from you.

    SuperGaleford

    You think he will? For real?

    What you show is your lack of fandom. When Whoopie Goldberg had her own show I believe Hagar was one of her first guests and he said something along the lines of if you ask him for a guitar he'll give it to you. This was part of his response to whether or not he still has his first guitar his mom bought him.

  5. Jay L Keene

    Luv it Sammy & Vic!!

  6. Oldman inthewoods

    The new "Lite Roast" CD – absolutely great music and great guitarsound! 
    I know this is my favorite CD for a long time.
    I've always liked Sammy's voice, but as good as here she has never been in connection to the music. Go ahead Sammy and Vic! Greetings from Germany.
