MEMPHIS  Johnny Rivers







Long Di[B]stance information Give me Memphis, Tennesee
[B]Help me find the party who tried to get in touch with me
She co[E]uld not leave a number but I know the place to call
"Cause my un[B]cle took the me[A]ssage and he w[G#m]rote it on the w[E]all
Help [B]me information get in touch with my Marie
[B]She's the only one who'd call me here from Memphis, Tennesee
Her h[E]ome is on the south side high upon the ridge
[B]Just a half a m[A]ile from that Mi[G#m]ssissippi br[E]idge.
[B]Last time I saw Marie she was waving me goodbye
[B]With hurry home drops on ther cheeks
[B]that trickled from her eyes
[E]Marie and I were pulled apart 'cause her mom did not agree
And t[B]ore apart our ha[A]ppy home in Me[G#m]mphis, Tennes[E]ee
Help [B]me Information more than that I can not add
[B]Only that I miss her so and all the fun we had
[E]Marie is only six years old so information please
[B]Try to put me thr[A]ough to her in Me[G#m]mphis, Tennes[E]ee

That's a fact. This should be removed.

The only thing about this version that resembles Johnny Rivers' version is the fact that it's in E. This is NOT the Rivers' version.
