Well Nashville had country music but Memphis had the soul
Lord, the white boy had the rhythm and that started rock and roll
And I was here when it happened don't you all think I ought to know
I was here when it happened, yeah, yeah, yeah
I watched Memphis give birth to rock and roll, Lord, lord yeah.
Well the cat named Elvis Be-Bopped in to sun right off the street
Sang 'Blue Moon' of OKY but he did it with a brand new beat
Guess he sought him a sleeping world and out there by surprise
Jack 'em up, you rang them out and he' hung 'em out to dry
I was there when it happened, don't you all think I ought to know, lord, lord
Yeah I was here when it happened I watched Memphis give birth...(more)
