    "Memphis" Lyrics

    Johnny Rivers

    Long distance information, give me Memphis, Tennessee
    Help me find a party that tried to get in touch with me
    She could not leave a number but I know who placed the call
    'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

    Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
    She's the only one who'd call me here from Memphis, Tennessee
    Her home is on the south side, high upon a ridge
    Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge


    Last time I saw Marie she was wavin' me goodbye
    With "hurry-home" drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
    But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
    And tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee

    Help me, information, more than that I cannot add
    Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
    Marie is only six years old, information please
    Try to put me through to her in Memphis, Tennessee
