Walking in Memphis
Marc Cohn

[Verse 1]

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


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

[Verse 2]

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


They've got[Gsus] gospel in the [G]air   [Gsus]        [G]
And Reverend Green [B7]be glad to [C]see you
When you hav[C]en't got a [D7]prayer   [G]        [G]
But boy you got a prayer in Mem[C]phis...[D]  [G]        [Em]

[Verse 3]

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


[C]Put [D]on my [G]blue suede [Em]shoes and I [C]board[D]ed the plane [G] [Em]
[C]Touched down in the [D]land of the [G]Delta [Em]Blues
[C]In the middle of the [D]pouring [G]rain [Em]
[C]Touched down in the [D]land of the [G]Delta [Em]Blues
[C]In the middle of the [D]pouring [G]rain [Em]
