'Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again'

Oh, the ragman draws circles
Up and down the block
I¿d ask him what the matter was
But I know that he don¿t talk
And the ladies treat me kindly
And they furnish me with tape
But deep inside my heart
I know I can¿t escape
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile with the
Memphis blues again

Well, Shakespeare, he¿s in the alley
With his pointed shoes and his bells
Speaking to some French girl
Who says she knows me well
And I would send a message
To find out if she¿s talked
But the post office has been stolen
And the mailbox is locked
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

Mona tried to tell me
To stay away from the train line
She said that all the railroad men
Just drink up your blood like wine
An¿ I said, ¿Oh, I didn¿t know that
But then again, there¿s only one I¿ve met
An¿ he just smoked my eyelids
An¿ punched my cigarette¿
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

Grandpa died last week
And now he¿s buried in the rocks
But everybody still talks about how
Badly they were shocked
But me, I expected it to happen
I knew he¿d lost control
When I speed built a fire on Main Street
And shot it full of holes
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

Now the senator came down here
Showing ev¿ryone his gun
Handing out free tickets
To the wedding of his son
An¿ me, I nearly got busted
An¿ wouldn¿t it be my luck
To get caught without a ticket
And be discovered beneath a truck
Oh, Mama, is this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

Now the tea preacher looked so baffled
When I asked him why he dressed
With twenty pounds of headlines
Stapled to his chest
But he cursed me when I proved it to him
Then I whispered and said, ¿Not even you can hide
You see, you¿re just like me
I hope you¿re satisfied¿
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

Now the rainman gave me two cures
Then he said, ¿Jump right in¿
The one was Texas medicine
The other was just railroad gin
An¿ like a fool I mixed them
An¿ it strangled up my mind
An¿ now people just get uglier
An¿ I have no sense of time
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

And when Ruthie says come see her
In her honky-tonk lagoon
Where I can watch her waltz for free
¿neath her Panamanian moon
An¿ I say, ¿Aw come on now
You know you knew about my debutante¿
An¿ she says, ¿Your debutante just knows what you need
But I know what you want¿
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

Now the bricks lay on Grand Street
Where the neon madmen climb
They all fall there so perfectly
It all seems so well timed
An¿ here I sit so patiently
Waiting to find out what price
You have to pay to get out of
Going through all these things twice
Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again

Sobre Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again

  • En la investigación lírica de Parker Fishel se cita: Adecuadamente, "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again" no es para nada una melodía de blues, sino que tiene un aire de country rock. La letra surrealista y esotérica de "Stuck Inside" convirtió a la canción en una de las favoritas del periodista gonzo Hunter S. Thompson. Menciona la canción en su novela Fear and Loathing en Las Vegas, y fue utilizada en la adaptación cinematográfica de 1998.


  • John Lennon, sin embargo, no era un fan. En "Satire #2", publicado en la caja The John Lennon Anthology, parodiaba el uso excesivo de la canción de esoterica con la línea "Stuck Inside of Lexicon with the Roget's Thesaurus Blues Again".

  • El grupo italiano de diseño y arquitectura de los años 80, The Memphis Group, recibió el nombre de esta canción, que supuestamente se repitió durante la reunión inaugural del colectivo.
