"Memphis Tennessee" lyrics - THE TROGGS

"Memphis Tennessee"

Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee
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 your uncle took the message and you wrote it on the wall.

Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phones 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 torn apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee.

Pa pa pa pa...

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
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee.

Pa pa pa pa...
