"Memphis Tennessee" as written by and Pat / Mc Laughlin....
Long distance information
Give me Memphis Tennessee.
Help me find the party
Tryin' to get in touch with me.
She could not leave a number
But I know who placed the call.
But my uncle took the message
And he wrote it on the wall!
Help me 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 Southside
High upon the ridge
Just a half from a mile
From the Mississippi bridge.
Help me information
More than that I cannot add.
Only that I miss her
And all the fun we have.
But we were pulled apart
'Cause her mom did not agree
Tore apart our happy home
In Memph. Tenn.
Last time I saw Marie
She's waving me good-bye.
With hurry home drops on her cheek
That trickles from her eyes.
Marie is only six years old
Information please!
Try to put me through to her
In Memphis Tenn.
