Help me find a party tryin to get in touch with me
She could not leave a number, so I've no place to 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 called me here from Memphis, Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high upon the ridge
Just a half a mile from that Mississippi bridge
Last time I saw Marie she was waving me goodbye
With hurry home drops on her cheeks and trickles from her eye
We were pulled apart because her Mom did not agree
and 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 fun we had
Marie is only 6 years old, information please,
Try to get me through to her in Memphis, Tennessee.
