Tom Jones - Memphis, Tennessee lyrics

Your rating:
Long Distance Information, give me Memphis, Tennessee
To help me find the party to 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

Help me, Information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
Marie is only six years old, Information please
Try to get me through to her in Memphis, Tennessee

You better 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

Well, the last time I saw Marie she was waving me good-bye
With lonely home tears on her cheek that trickled all down her eye
But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
She tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee
In Memphis, Tennessee
I gonna get back home
To my little Marie
Get this song at:
