C / / / 2 / / / 3 / /
     G
Long-distance information, get me Memphis, Tennessee
Help me find the party who tried to get in touch with me
    C
She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
                       G7                             C
'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

Verse 2:
Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who called me here from Memphis, Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high upon the ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge

(instrumental; same pattern as verses)

Verse 3:
Help me, information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
But we were pulled apart because her mom would not agree
Tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee

Verse 4:
Last time I saw Marie, she was wavin' me goodbye
With hurry-home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eyes
Marie is only 6 years old; information please
Try to put me through to her in Memphis, Tennessee
