Walking in Memphis  Marc Cohn


[F]Put [G]on my [C]blue suede [Am]shoes and I[F] board[G]ed the pl[C]ane[Am]
[F]Touched down in the [G]land of the [C]Delta [Am]Blues
[F]In the middle of the [G]pouring [C]rain [Am]
[F] W[G].C. [C]Handy, [Am] [F]won't you look down [G]over [C]me?  [Am]
[F]Yeah, I got a [G]first cl[C]ass ticket [Am]
But I'm a[F]s blue as a [G]boy can b[C]e...

Chorus

Then I'm wal[Am]king in Mem[F]phis,  [G]        [C]
[Am]I was walking with my [F]feet ten [G]feet off [C]Beale,
[Am]Walking in Mem[F]phis,  [G] [C]
[Am]But do I really [F]feel the [G]way I feel?  [Gsus]  [C/G]

[F]Saw the [G]ghost of [C]Elvis[Am] on[F] [G]Union ave[C]nue[Am],
[F]Followed him [G]up to the [C]gates of [Am]Graceland
Then I [F]watched him [G]walk right [C]through[Am]
Now, se[F]curity they [G]did not [C]see him[Am]
They just[F] hovered a[G]round his[C] tomb[Am].
But there's a [F]pretty little [G]thing [C]waiting for the [Am]King
[F]Down in the [G]jungle [C]room

Trying to match the finger picking to the piano is killin me. The chords are no problem, but I just can't seem to get the picking sequence right. This is such an awesome song.

brill song. always loved this one. the knack i found is to get the basic chords going, then once you can play them drop in the lyrics. found it easier to capo on the 6th.
