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 
Marie is only six years old, information please 
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
