Flatt And Scruggs Lyrics

Memphis Tennessee Lyrics
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
