    Lyrics

    Put on my blue suede shoes and I boarded the plane
    Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
    In the middle of the pouring rain

    W. C. Handy - won't you look down over me
    Yeah I got a first class ticket
    But I'm as blue as a boy can be

    Then I was walking in Memphis
    I was walking with my feet ten feet off the Beale
    Walking in Memphis
    But do I really feel the way I feel?

    So the ghost of Elvis on Union Avenue
    Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
    Then I've watched him walk right through

    Now security did not see him
    They just hovered around his tomb
    But there's a pretty little thing
    Waiting for the king down in the Jungle Room

    When I was walking in Memphis
    I was walking with my feet ten feet off a Beale
    Walking in Memphis
    But do I really feel the way I feel

    They've got catfish on the table
    They've got gospel in the air
    And Reverend Green would be glad to see you
    When you haven't got a prayer
    But, boy you got a prayer in Memphis

    Now Murielle plays piano
    Every Friday at the Hollywood
    And they took me down to see her
    And asked me if I would

    Just do a little number,
    And so I sang with all my might
    She said tell me are you a Christian child
    And I said
    Mam I am tonight

    Walking in Memphis
    I was walking with my feet ten feet off the Beale
    Walking in Memphis
    But do I really feel the way I feel

    Walking in Memphis
    I was walking with my feet ten feet off a Beale
    Walking in Memphis
    But do I really feel the way I feel
    Put on my blue suede shoes
