[Verse 1: Marc Cohn]
C9  Dsus     G       Em7
Put on my blue suede shoes
      C9   Dsus    G    Em7
And I boarded the plane
C9            Dsus              G      Em7
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
C9                  Dsus     G    Em7
In the middle of the pouring rain
C9 Dsus  G    Em7 C9                  Dsus G Em7
W. C. -- Handy -- won't you look down over me
C9          Dsus     G         Em7
Yeah I got a first class ticket
          C9        Dsus     G
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

[Hook: Marc Cohn]
                    C9  Dsus     G
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Em7             C9   Dsus           G
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Em7        C9  Dsus     G
Walking in Memphis
Em7             C9       Dsus  G
But do I really feel the way I feel

[Verse 2: Marc Cohn]
C9      Dsus     G     Em7
Saw the ghost of Elvis
C9 Dsus  G   Em7
On Union Avenue
C9           Dsus     G         Em7
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
       C9         Dsus        G     Em7
Then I watched him walk right through
      C9         Dsus     G       Em7
Now security they did not see him
          C9      Dsus      G       Em7
They just hovered around his tomb
             C9            Dsus     G               Em7
But there's a pretty little thing,  Waiting for The King
N.C.
Down in the Jungle Room

[Hook: Marc Cohn]
                    C9  Dsus     G
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Em7             C9   Dsus           G
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Em7        C9  Dsus     G
Walking in Memphis
Em7             C9       Dsus  G
But do I really feel the way I feel

  Gsus                     G    Gsus G
They've got catfish on the table
            Gsus          G    Gsus G
They've got gospel in the air
             E7                    C
And Reverend Green will be glad to see you
         C#dim         D
When you haven't got a prayer
                               C9     Dsus  G  Em7
But boy you've got a prayer in Memphis

[Verse 3: Marc Cohn]
C9         Dsus  G    Em7
Now Muriel plays piano
C9    Dsus          G    Em7
Every Friday at the Hollywood
C9       Dsus               G      Em7
And they brought me down to see her
C9       Dsus         G     Em7
And they asked me if I would
C9   Dsus   G     Em7
Do a little number
      C9       Dsus    G    Em7
And I sang with all my might

And she said
C9           Dsus  G         Em7
"Tell me are you a Christian child?"

And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"

[Hook: Marc Cohn]
                    C9  Dsus     G
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Em7             C9   Dsus           G
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Em7        C9  Dsus     G
Walking in Memphis
Em7             C9       Dsus  G
But do I really feel the way I feel
                    C9  Dsus     G
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Em7             C9   Dsus           G
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Em7        C9  Dsus     G
Walking in Memphis
Em7             C9       Dsus  G
But do I really feel the way I feel

[Outro: Marc Cohn]
C9  Dsus  G          Em7
Put on my blue suede shoes
     C9  Dsus     G       Em7
And I boarded the plane
C9                 Dsus         G     Em7
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
C9                  Dsus     G    Em7
In the middle of the pouring rain
C9                  Dsus        G     Em7
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
C9                  Dsus     G    Em7
In the middle of the pouring rain
