Conway Twitty – Memphis Tennessee lyrics

Long distance information give me Memphis, Tennessee
Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
I could not have her number but I know who placed the call
My uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall.

Now, help me information get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis, Tennessee
Her home is on the southside, high upon a ridge
Just a half a mile from that Mississippi Bridge.

--- Instrumental ---

Last time I saw Marie she was waving me goodbye
With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eyes
We were separated 'cause her mom did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee.

--- Instrumental ---

Oh, help me operator, more than this I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
Oh, Marie is only six years old, information please
Try to get me through to her in Memphis, Tennessee...
