Memphis chords
Johnny Rivers  1964 (Chuck Berry Memphis, Tennessee 1959)


Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee

Help me find a party that tried to get in touch with me
She could not leave a number but I know who placed the call
          B7                                          E
'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
[ Tab from: ]
She's the only one who'd call me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high upon a ridge
B7                                      E
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge

Dm (shaped chord B6) on 7th fret, Dm (shaped chord A6) on 5th fret 4x
Dm (shaped chord) on 12th fret, Dm (shaped chord) on 10th fret 2x
Dm (shaped chord B6) on 7th fret, Dm (shaped chord A6) on 5th fret 1 1/2x


Last time I saw Marie she was wavin' me goodbye

With "hurry-home" drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
    B7                                         E
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Help me, information, more than that I cannot add

Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
Marie is only six years old, information please
B7                                            E
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
