MEMPHIS TENNESSEE

Chuck Berry

 

Long distance information, give me

Memphis Tennessee


Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me


She did not leave her number but

I know the place to call


The phone boy took the message

and he wrote it on the wall


I said 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 south side,

high up on a ridge


About a half a mile from the

Mississipi bridge



 

Oh help me information,

more than this I cannot add


Only that I love Marie

and all the fun we had


But we were pulled apart now

'cause her momma did not agree


And tore apart our happy home in

Memphis Tennessee


 

Last time I saw Marie,

she was waving me goodbye


With hurry home drops on her cheek

that trickl'd from her eye


Marie is only six years old,

so information please


Try to put me through to her in

Memphis Tennessee


I said try to put me through to her in

Memphis Tennessee


Oh won't you put me through to her in

Memphis Tennessee
