(words & music by chuck berry)Long distance information give me memphis, tennesseeHelp me find the party trying to get in touch with meShe could not leave her number but I know who placed the callMy uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wallHelp me information to get in touch with my marieShe’s the only one who’d phone me here from memphis, tennesseeHer home is on the southside, high upon a ridgeJust a half a mile from the mississippi bridgeHelp me information more than that I cannot addOnly that I miss her and all the fun we hadBut we were pulled apart because her mom did not agreeTore apart our happy home in memphis, tennesseeThe last time I saw marie she was waving me goodbyeWith hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eyeMarie is only six years old, information pleaseTry to put me through to her in memphis, tennessee
