Memphis, tennessee by Statler Brothers  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Memphis, tennessee (Chuck Berry)

Long distance information
Get me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party
Try to get in touch with me.

She could not leave her number
But I know who placed the call
My uncle took the message
And he wrote it on the wall.

Help me operator
Get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who's called me
Here from Memphis, Tennessee.

Her home is on the southside
High up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from
The Mississippi Bridge.

The last time I saw Marie
She was waving me goodbye
Hurry home drops on her cheeks
That trickled from her eyes.

We were torn apart because
Her mom would not agree
Tore apart our happy home
In Memphis, Tennessee.

Help me operator
More than this I cannot add
Only that I miss her
And all the fun we had.

Marie is only six years old
Get the message please
Help me put me through to her
In Memphis, Tennessee...
