(chuck berry)

Long distance information give me memphis tennesee
Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
'cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall.

Help me information get in touch with my marie;
She's the only one who'd phone me here from memphis, tennesee.
Her house is on the south side, high up on a ridge
Just about a half a mile from the mississippi bridge.

Last time I saw marie, she was waving me goodbye
With hurry home drops on her cheeks that trickeled from her eye
Marie is only six years old, information, please
Try to put me through to her in memphis, tennesee
