"Memphis Tennessee" as written by and Pat / Mc Laughlin....
Long distance information give 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
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'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
[ ac.guitar ]
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 daddy did not agree
Tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee
Long distance operator more than this I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
Marie is only six years old so information please
Try to get me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
