Memphis Lyrics

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

Help me, operator, more than this 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

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

Help me, operator, 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 up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge
