lyrics

Well I was all shook up in the middle of Memphis
She stabbed me with a cigarette while kissing a crucifix
She told me in confidence as I was licking off her lipstick
I don't wanna die in Tennessee, I wanna be different

Well I was rattling my bones like a candy coated carcass
in the backseat of a limousine (backseat of a limousine)
And I fell down from my throne and landed right back where I started
like a gas mask soaked in kerosene (kerosene, kerosene)
Tip toe through the tombstones
Don't sprint or you'll trip on your own
(Alright, Alright)
Don't believe your money's the only thing
That she wouldn't blow

Well I was all shook up in the middle of Memphis
She stabbed me with a cigarette while kissing a crucifix
She told me in confidence as I was licking off her lipstick
I don't wanna die in Tennessee, I wanna be different

Well I saw her at a show and she asked if I was high
or if I'd never met a beauty queen
And I was running out of blow when my gun went off inside her
like an accidental guillotine (accidental guillotine)
Ring around the roadkill
Don't blink or you'll slip on your own
(Alright, Alright)
Don't believe your cover's the only thing
that she couldn't blow

Well I was all shook up in the middle of Memphis
She stabbed me with a cigarette while kissing a crucifix
She told me in confidence as I was licking off her lipstick
I don't wanna die in Tennessee, I wanna be different
Yes I was shook up in the middle of Memphis
She grabbed me by the shoulder blades and shouted "I'm sick of this"
She told me in confidence as I was licking off her lipstick
Baby I don't wanna die - Baby I don't wanna die

Shake it baby

She was laughing in her sleep when I realized that I loved her
so I asked if she would marry me
I knew she couldn't hear me, but the look upon her face
it seemed as if she had been scared of me
And I woke up hours later with her hands around my throat
In the distance I heard Graceland playing on my stereo
I said "I'm coming to you Jesus, please let Mr. Presley know
and I'm sorry for the times when I was living on the road and I was

All Shook up in the middle of Memphis
She stabbed me with a cigarette while kissing a crucifix
She told me in confidence as I was licking off her lipstick
I don't wanna die in Tennessee, I wanna be different
Yes I was shook up in the middle of Memphis
She grabbed me by the shoulder blades and shouted "I'm sick of this"
She told me in confidence as I was licking off her lipstick
Baby I don't wanna die - Woo, Hey honey
Well I was always shook up and I'm done blaming Memphis
I don't wanna be your enemy, I just want to get intimate
Yea call me incompetent, keep on shaking off my sentiments
But please don't let me die
Well I was all shook up
