Summer In Memphis

I was leaving the beer line  
When she bumped into me    
Had one in each hand  
Spilling Bud Light on her Def Leppard tee † †  
I said excuse me ma'am † †  
Can I buy you a beer † †  
She said that would be nice † †  
But that's not why I'm here † †  
As she grabbed me by the hand
 
I was chillin' in a beach chair † †  
As the sun came out † †  
Smoke filled the air † †  
While she danced in that Memphis mud † †  
The band played their last song † †  
I smiled and said, how about that beer † †  
She said that would be nice † †  
But that's not why I'm here † † †  
As she grabbed me by the hand
 
We were sitting by the fountain † † †  
As those ducks came in † † †  
I could see it in her eye † † †  
So I said goodbye † † †  
She leaned in and whispered † † †  
That's not why I'm here † † †  
She let go of my hand, gave me that Georgia smile † † †  
She said donít worry, Iíll be back next year † † †  
As I watched her walk away... † † †  
All I could think about... † †  
How she... † †  
†† † †
She blew me away † † †  
Like a Memphis storm in May † † †  
We danced in the rain † † †  
While the band played on † † †  
We slipped in the mud † † †  
Sat there for awhile † † †  
Then I brushed her hair back † † †  
She kissed me with that Georgia smile
