Walking In Memphis-Lonestar: By Erik vdPutten

These are the Chords, but at the bottom there is fingering for the verses.It sounds
close to the piano.  Play it repeadetly.  Each Chord gets replaced by the fingering
shown below, but only for the verses, then it switches to chords.  Everytime a chord
changes change you should be done the fingering.

		...Verse One...
[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]Cuz, 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]


		...Verse 2...
[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

		...Chorus...

		...Bridge...
They've got [Csus]cat fish on the [C]table  [Csus]	[C]
They've got[Csus] gospel in the [C]air	[Csus]	[C]
And Reverend Green [E7]be glad to [F]see you
When you hav[F#dim]en't got a [G7]prayer	[C/G]	[C]
But boy you got a prayer in Mem[F]phis...[G]	[C]	[Am]

		...Verse3...
[F]Now, Muriel [G]plays pi[C]ano[Am] [F]every [G]friday at the [C]Holly[Am]wood
[F]And they [G]brought me down to [C]see her[Am]
[F]And they [G]asked me if I[C] would[Am]
[F]Do a [G]little [C]number[Am]
And I[F] sang with [G]all my [C]might[Am]
She said "[F]Tell me, are [G]you a [C]Christian, [Am]child?"
And I said "[F]Ma'am, I am tonight."

		...Chorus X-3...

Your tab is not half bad. Hard to read at first. I think you left out an Am at the end of the 1st verse which messes up the cord pattern into the chorus. My ear hears the Chorus following the same basic progression as the verse starting in F, but maybe I'm wrong.
