Long distance information, give me Memphis, Tennessee
Help me find a party tried to get in touch with me
She did not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
My uncle took the message, and he wrote on the wall

Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only who'd call 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 times we had
But we were torn apart, because her ma did not agree
She tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee

Help me, information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the times we had
But we were torn apart, because her ma did not agree
She tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee

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