Christmas In Memphis
Lyrics and Music by Michael Porter and Stephony Smith

It's December Twenty-Four
Just Like All the Ones Before
This One Is Different

Seems Like Everyone I See
Makes a Point of Wishing Me
A Merry Christmas

It's Not The Presents Or The Lights Up On The Trees
It's Not The Santas Ringing Bells Out In The Streets
It's That I'm Home and There's No Place I'd Rather Be
Because It's Christmas in Memphis
Christmas in Memphis
Christmas in Memphis, Tennessee

Once Again It Didn't Snow
And I Turn on My Radio
And "Blue Christmas" Plays

When the Clock Rolls Past the Twelve
We Put Time Put Up On a Shelf
Just For a Day

*Repeat Chorus

On This Silent Night Hear the Church Bells Ring
As the River Goes By Caroling
There's Not a Stranger Tonight In This Town On The Bluff
A Star Shines Bright as a Symbol of Love

*Repeat Chorus
