[Verse 1]
Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded a plane
Touch down in the land of
The Delta blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
W.U.C. Handy
Won't you look down over me
Yeah, I've got a first class ticket
But I'm as blue as a boy can be


[Chorus]
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?


[Verse 2]
Saw the ghost of Elvis
Down on Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
And watched him walk right through
Now security they did not see him
They just hovered round his tomb
But there's a pretty little thing
Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room

[Chorus]
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?

[Bridge]
They've got catfish on the table
They've got gospel in the air
Reverend Green be glad to see you
When you haven't got a Prayer
Oh, boy you got a prayer in Memphis

[Verse 3]
Muriel plays piano
Every Friday at the Hollywood
And she asked me down to see her
And they asked me if I would
To do a little number
And I sang with all my might
She said - Tell me are you a Christian child?
And I said - I am tonight!

[Chorus]
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel
Walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?

[Solo]

[Chorus ]
Walking in Memphis
(Walking in Memphis)
I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
(Walking in Memphis)
But do I really feel the way I feel?


[Outro]
Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
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
In the middle of that pouring, that pouring rain...
