Most chords palm muted
E Well, there is only one reason I stop in this place
BLet me stress that it ain’t the cuisine
The eggs are all runny, the hash browns smell funny and
EThe coffee tastes like gasoline
E But there goes the one thing that I’ve been looking forward to
BFor the last six-hundred miles
In a slow motion pan with 8 beers in each hand
EWhat’s here of heaven in her smile
E B EShe is the prettiest waitress in Memphis
Fm BAnd I think she’s flirting with me
Readin’ them specials- extra special
EShe slipped a finger into my sweet tea
EO’ but a small stack of singles from a hard double-shift
BWill do terrible things to a smile
And the prettiest waitress in Memphis knows E (intro riff) She’s only that way for a while Somehow she remembered my name though its been Several months since I passed through this way She said she’s lived here all her twenty three years I said I’d be here for a day Ordered the pecan pie and with a wink of an eye Got a slice as big as my head And her name and her number on a Sweet-n-Low package Is the best poem that I’ve ever read She’s the prettiest waitress in Memphis, And I know she's flirtin' with me. Been reading them specials, extra special. Slipped a finger into my sweet tea. O' but a small stack of singles from a hard double-shift Will do terrible things to her smile. And the prettiest waitress in Memphis knows, She's only that way for a while. Well, the prettiest waitress in Memphis Spilled her heart all over me As I held her that night in a way she was right when she said, “This will all change eventually” Cause she ain’t the prettiest waitress in Memphis no more But it’s not what you’re thinking- you see The prettiest waitress in Memphis just quit And she’s leaving Memphis with me The prettiest ex-waitress in all of Memphis is Leaving Memphis with me.
