Jones, Tom - Memphis, Tennessee Lyrics




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 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 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 tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Last time I saw Marie she's waving me good-bye
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

    Nos haces bailar con solo escucharte!!!

  2. Deon Van der Westhuizen

    Johnny Rivers did it better. So did Chuck and Elvis.

  3. Marco Souza

    Clássico do rock roll foi composta pelo saudoso pai do rock o saudoso Chuck Berry. Sir Tom Jones não podia deixar de gravar está musica imortal. ❤❤😀😀😀👍👍👍👍

  4. Dermot Walsh

    The words are chaotic! Eg the second verse on this record starts off with the third and skips to the fourth. So many singers have trouble, probably because the second and third verses both start “Help me information”.

    Peter Checksfield

    This is closely based on Jerry Lee Lewis' version (who also messes up the verses!).

    altri tempi altra musica, ma musica con la EMME maiuscola era, quanta nostalgia e quanta mediocrità oggigiorno, tutto precotto tutto campionato tutto su base rap, mah, sarà.

  6. Mr22thou

    Rocin' mofo.

  7. Hoyle Marshall

    Great version
