[G] 1 / 2 / 3 /... 

[D7] distance information, get me Memphis, Tennessee 

Help me find the party who tried to get in touch with me 

[G] She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call 

[D7] ‘Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the  
[G7] wall 

[D7] Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie 

She’s the only one who called me here from Memphis, Tennessee 

[G] Her home is on the south side, high upon the ridge 

[D7] Just a half a mile from the Mississippi  
[G7] bridge 


[D7] Help me, information, more than that I cannot add 

Only that I miss her and all the fun we had 

[G] But we were pulled apart because her mom would not agree 

[D7] Tore apart our happy home in Memphis,  
[G7] Tennessee 

[D7] Last time I saw Marie, she was wavin’ me goodbye 

With hurry—home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eyes 

[G] Marie is only 6 years old; information please 

[D7] Try to put me through to her in Memphis,  
[G7] Tennessee
