memphis lyrics – tom jones

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 tne
’cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the

help me, information, get in touch with my marie
she´s the only one who´d phone me here from memphis
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
marie is only six years old, information please
try to put me through to her in memphis tennessee
