Fast Lane To Memphis Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Mom bought dad the franklin mint rendition
Of a nineteen ninety-five chevrolet
She said, "I'm giving you this gift in loving memory
Of the fun that lived and died in the good old days"
Verse 2
Remember how it was then, honey
Fender skirts and rock and roll
Carhops at the lone star drive-in
Elvis on the radio
We never used a map while cruisin' back roads
Heads or tails on a coin was our guide
How'd we hit the road that elvis rode to Memphis?
The fast lane that took his life
Verse 3
Give a coin a flip-flop find a different blacktop
We've headed down a fast lane to Memphis
Toss a coin so we will know which way to go
Just get me out of this
Fast lane to Memphis
Verse 4
We made a lot of miles and memories
In a fifty-five chevy car
Just cruisin' down the road to who knows where
A little too fast and far
But fast just ain't the same now, honey
The time has come for slowin' down
We're livin' on a fast lane to Memphis
It's not too late for turnin' round
Verse 5
Give a coin a flip-flop find a different blacktop
We've headed down a fast lane to Memphis
Toss a coin so we will know which way to go
Just get me out of this
Fast lane to Memphis
