walking in memphis lyrics – cher

put on my blue suede shoes
and i boarded the plane
touched down in the land of the delta blues
in the middle of the pouring rain

w.c. handy, won’t you look down over me?
yeah, i got a first cl*ss ticket
but i’m as blue as a girl can be

then i’m walking in memphis
i was walking with my feet ten feet off of beale
walking in memphis
but do i really feel the way i feel?

saw the ghost of elvis on union avenue
followed him up to the gates of graceland
i watched him walk right through

now security, they did not see him
they just hovered ’round his tomb
there’s a pretty little thing waiting for the king
down in the jungle room

when i was walking in memphis
i was walking with my feet ten feet off of beale
walking in memphis
but do i really feel the way i feel?

walking in memphis
(walking in memphis)
i was walking with my feet ten feet off of beale
(walk)
walking in memphis
(walking in memphis)
but do i really feel the way i feel?

they got catfish on the table
they got gospel in the air
reverend green be glad to see you
when you haven’t got a prayer
boy, you’ve got a prayer in memphis

now gabriel plays piano
every friday at the hollywood
and they brought me down to see him
they asked me if i would

do a little number?
and i sang with all my might
he said, “tell me, are you a christian, child?”
and i said, “man, i am tonight”

walking in memphis
(walking in memphis)
i was walking with my feet ten feet off of beale
(walk)
walking in memphis
(walking in memphis)
but do i really feel the way i feel?

walking in memphis
(walking in memphis)
i was walking with my feet ten feet off of beale
(walk)
walking in memphis
(walking in memphis)
but do i really feel the way i feel?

put on my blue suede shoes
