Sequestered In Memphis Songtext
It started when we were dancing.
It got heavy when we got to the bathroom.
We didn't go back to her place, we went to some place where she cat sits. (?)
She said, "I know I look tired, but every thing's fried here in Memphis."
Now they want to know exactly which bathroom.

In daylight she looked desperate.
That's alright, I was desperate too.

I guess she seemed a bit nervous, do you think I'm that stupid?
Oh what the hell, I'll tell the story again.

In bar light she looked alright.
In daylight she looked desperate.
That's alright, I was desperate too.
I'm getting pretty sick of this interview.

Subpoenaed in Texas.
Sequestered in Memphis.
