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
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
