Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee

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
