"Memphis, Tennessee" lyrics - PAUL ANKA

"Memphis, Tennessee"

Long distance information
Give me Memphis, Tennessee
Help me find the party
Tryin' 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
From Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the southside
High up on the 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.
The last time I saw Marie
She was waving me goodbye
With hurry home drops on her cheek
That trickled from her eye.
Marie is only six years old
Information please.
Please try to put me through to her
In Memphis Tennessee.
