Long distance information give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party try 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

So help me operator get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd call me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the southside high up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge

The last time I saw Marie she was a waving me goodbye
With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickle from her eyes
But we were torn apart because her mom did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

So help me information more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her so and all the fun we had
Marie is only six years old so information please
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
So try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
