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

Long distance information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge

Long distance information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
But we were torn apart because her mom did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Now last time I saw Marie she's a waving me good-bye
With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
Marie is only six years old, information please
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee

Yes oh yes long distance, I'll accept the charge, I'll pay
Which loved one is calling me? I did not hear you say
Both are deep within my heart, her mom and my Marie
It's so good to hear your voice from Memphis Tennessee

Oh you mean so much to me, more than you'll ever know
Surely you have not forgot how much I love you so
If you would remember dear and sometimes talk to me
Maybe that would reunite our home in Tennessee

Now last time I saw you just before I had to leave
You didn't want to see me off and promised not to grieve
My heart was torn apart as I looked back at Marie
And there the pieces still remain with you in Tennessee

Well I guess I should stop talking, after all you placed the call
But any way that I can help, you know I'll help you all
Then she spoke and asked me to come back and see Marie
And live together in our home in Memphis Tennessee
