The Sun Story - Mystery Train

The Sun Story

Mystery Train

(Clemson - Evans, RAW RECORDS RAW21, 1978)

Well, it started back in '53
By Sam Phillips in Tennessee
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
Sun Records started that crazy beat
In a warehouse down on Union Street
Sun's gonna shine through rock 'n' roll history

Well, that country boy named Scotty Moore
Was playin' blues on his guitar
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
D.J. Fontana rocks the place
Along with Bill Black slappin' bass
Sun's gonna shine through rock 'n' roll history

Billy Riley, Warren Smith, Charlie Rich, you'd see
With Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee
Hillbilly cats, playin' rock 'n' roll
On Ed Sullivan's T.V. show
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
Their Sunshine shone from coast to coast
That rock 'n' roll sound is just the most
Sun's gonna shine through rock 'n' roll history

Billy Riley, Warren Smith, Charlie Rich, you'd see
With Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee
The years have come and years have gone
The sound at Sun keeps rollin' on
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
Now's a new generation, they'll learn, you'll see
About the rockin' rollin' history
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
Yeah! (Keep that Sun shinin')

The years have come and years have gone
The sound at Sun keeps rollin' on
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
Now's a new generation, they'll learn, you'll see
About the rockin' rollin' history
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
Sun's gonna shine in Memphis Tennessee
One more...

Come on Johnny Cash, let's Walk The Line
Sonny Burgess, get ole Sadie back there
Jack Clement, Billy Riley and his Little Green Men
Come on Roy Orbison, let's hear some Rockhouse
Some Bill Justis please
Elvis, That's Alright Mama
Get on that Mystery Train
Okay Carl...
