Standard (EADGBE)

(7th Fret)

Strum Chords with rhythm till chord change

Slide up from E to first B

(alternate rapidly between and )

Long distance in formation, give me Memphis Tennessee

(alternate rapidly between and )

Help me find the party trying 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

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

Just A half 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 had

But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree

And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Last time I saw Marie she's 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
