Walking in Memphis - by Marc Cohn

[Intro 1]
   F5     G5      C5     A5    X2

[VERSE 1]
   F5    G5    C5          A5         F5       G5         C5       A5
     Put on my blue suede shoes   And I   boarded the plane
           F5        G5           C5        A5
   Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
   F5                   G5      C5     A5     F5
   In the middle of the pouring rain
      G5  C5     A5      F5            G5   C5   A5
   W. C.  Handy -- won't you look down over me
   F5     G5    C5                 A5
   Yeah I got a first class ticket
           F5           G5      C5
   But I'm as blue as a boy can be

[Chorus 1]
            Am             F     G     C
   Then I'm walking in Memphis
    Am                 F        G              C
   Was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
   Am             F      G     C
     Walking in Memphis
   Am              F                    F5   Gsus F5  C/E  Dm   F5
   But do I really feel the way I feel?\              \           \     
   
[Verse 2]
       Gsus      F5   C/E    Dm     F5       Gsus    F5  C/E    Dm
   Saw the ghost of Elvis                On Union Av  e  nue
                F5    Gsus      F5       C/E     Dm
   Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
     F5           Gsus           F5      C/E    Dm
   Then I watched him walk right through
   C/E     F5            Gsus        C
   Now security they did not see him
   Am      F5      Gsus           C    Am
     They just hovered 'round his tomb
                 F5        Gsus           C       Am
   But there's a pretty little thing, waiting for the King
   F5
   Down in the Jungle Room

[Chorus 2]
   C                      F      G     C
   When I was walking in Memphis
   Am                    F        G              Am7
   I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
                  F     G    C
   Walking in Memphis
      Am7         F         G          C7sus    C7      C7sus   C7
   But do I really feel the way I feel?\        \       \       \   

[Bridge ]
              C7sus                 C7       C7sus      C7
   They've got     catfish on the table      \       \
           C7sus             C7       C7sus    C
   They've got gospel in the air      \       \
                   E7            F7
   And Reverend Green be glad to see you
            F#dim              G7        G7      G7
   When you      haven't got a prayer
   N.C.                               F5   G5    C5    A5    F5   G5    C5   A5
   But boy you've got a prayer in Mem  phis        \           \          \

[Verse 3]
   F5         G5         C5     A5      F5        G5      C5     A5
   Now Muriel plays piano         Every Friday at the Hollywood
       F5              G5   C5       A5      F5                G5   C5    A5
   And they brought me down to see her       And they asked me if I would
   F           G7sus      C     Am      F         G7sus        C          Am
     Well do a little   number    And I sang with all       my might
            F      G                 C     Am7
   She said, "Tell me are you a Christian child?"
             F5              C
   And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"

[Chorus 3]
                 F      G     C     Am7                   F        G                Am
   Walking in Memphis               I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
                 F      G     C     Am7             F        C/E   Dm   C
   Walking in Memphis               But do I really feel the way   I    feel?
   Am7           F      G     C     Am7                   F        G                Am
   Walking in Memphis               I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
                 F      G     C     Am7             F        G          F5
   Walking in Memphis               But do I really feel the way   I    feel?

       G5   C5     A5    F5    G5   C5    A5   F5
  \            \            \          \          \

[Final Verse]
       G5    C5         A5           F5       G5           C5      A5
   Put on my blue suede shoes    And I    boarded the plane
           F5      G5          C5        A5      F5                   G5      C5     A5
   Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues   In the middle of the pouring rain

   Touched down in the land of the Delta  Blues
          F                G    F5     G5   C5
   In the middle of the pouring rain

    A5    F5     G5    C5    A5    F5    G5    C5    A5    F5      Gsus G     C

okay so at least this is the first intelligible one I've seen it's still hard to look at, if you looked over it a bit you'd notice how.... terrible some of the spelling is.
I recommend spell checking.
