The Hold Steady - Sequestered In Memphis lyrics

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
Dude, does it make any difference? It can't be important
Yeah, sure I'll tell my 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
Subpoenaed in Texas
Sequestered in Memphis

I think she drove a new Mustang
I guess it might be a rental
I remember she had satellite radio
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
Subpoenaed in Texas
Sequestered in Memphis

(Subpoenaed in Texas)
(Sequestered in Memphis)
(Subpoenaed in Texas)
(Sequestered in Memphis)

I went there on business
(Subpoenaed in Texas)
(Sequestered in Memphis)

I went there on business
(Subpoenaed in Texas)
(Sequestered in Memphis)

I went there on business
(Subpoenaed in Texas)
(Sequestered in Memphis)

I went there on business
(Subpoenaed in Texas)
(Sequestered in Memphis)
