Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee
help me find the party tryin´ to get in touch with me.
She could not leave her number but I know who placed the call
my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall.
Aaah, help me information, get in touch with my Marie
she´s the only one who would phone me here from MemphisTennessee.
Her home is on the south side, high up on a ridge
just a half a mile from the Missisippi bridge.
Aaah, help me information more than that I can not add
only that I miss her and all the fun we had,
put we were pulled apart because her mam did not agree
and tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee.
Last time I saw Marie she was waving me goodbye
with hurry-home-drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
Marie is only 6 years old so information please
try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee.
