Memphis chords
Johnny Rivers 1964 (Chuck Berry Memphis, Tennessee 1959)
Long [B7]distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find a party that tried to get in touch with me
She [E]could not leave a number but I know who placed the call
'Cause my [B7]uncle took a message and he wrote it on the [E]wall
[B7]Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd call me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her [E]home is on the south side, high upon a ridge
[B7]Just a half a mile from the Mississippi [E]bridge
Dm (shaped chord B6) on 7th fret, Dm (shaped chord A6) on 5th fret 4x
Dm (shaped chord) on 12th fret, Dm (shaped chord) on 10th fret 2x
Dm (shaped chord B6) on 7th fret, Dm (shaped chord A6) on 5th fret 1 1/2x
Last [B7]time I saw Marie she was wavin' me goodbye
With "hurry-home" drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
But [E]we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
And [B7]tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennes[E]see
[B7]Help me, information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
Ma[E]rie is only six years old, information please
[B7]Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennes[E]see
