Memphis Tennessee
Chuck Berry Lyrics

Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
'Cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall

Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge
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 did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Last time I saw Marie she's waving me good bye
With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
Marie is only six years old, information please
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee

"...with hurry home drops on her cheek..." One of, if not THE best line in a song, ever. Not only is Chuck Berry a guitar genius, he is a true American poet.


This is 7 years late, but I always thought of this line as one of Chucks best! He definitely gave R&R it's poetry! Hello from June 19, 2020!


The separation of a child and her father...

Wow that's a sad and powerful song...the last 2 verses  you realise he's been singing of his daughter in Memphis, Tennessee...his breakup with her Mom and how  they (daughter and Daddy)  miss each other. Such a jaunty tune for a heart-breaker. Brilliant, just briliiant
