Long distance information give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party 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 operator get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd called me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the southside high up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge
[ harmonica ]
The last time I saw my Marie she was waving me goodbye
Hurry home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eyes
We were torn apart because her mom could not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee
Help me operator more than this I cannot add
Only that I miss her so and all the fun we had
Marie is only six years old get the message please
Help to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
