Help me find the party tryin´ to get in touch with me.
She could not leave her number but i know who placed the call
My uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall.
Aaah, help me information, get in touch with my marie
She´s the only one who would 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 missisippi bridge.
Aaah, help me information more than that i can not add
Only that i miss her and all the fun we had,
Put we were pulled apart because her mam did not agree
And 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 6 years old so information please
Try to put me through to her in memphis tennessee.
