Memphis, Tennessee  
Written by Chuck Berry and covered by Rod Stewart

E / / / 2 / / / 3 / /
Long-distance information, get me Memphis, Tennessee
Help me find the party who tried to get in touch with me
She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
                       B7                             E
'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

Verse 2:
Help me, information; get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who called me here from Memphis, Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high upon the ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge

(Instrumental; same pattern as verses)

Verse 3:
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 would not agree
Tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee

Verse 4:
Last time I saw Marie, she was waving' me goodbye
With hurry-home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eyes
Marie is only 6 years old; information please
Try to put me through to her in Memphis, Tennessee.
