Lyrics

[Verse 1: Marc Cohn] Put on my blue suede shoes And I boarded the plane Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues In the middle of the pouring rain W.C. Handy won't you look down over me Yeah I got a first class ticket But I'm as blue as a boy can be [Hook: Marc Cohn] Then I'm walking in Memphis Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walking in Memphis But do I really feel the way I feel [Verse 2: Marc Cohn] Saw the ghost of Elvis On Union Avenue Followed him up to the gates of Graceland Then I watched him walk right through Now security they did not see him They just hovered around his tomb But there's a pretty little thing Waiting for The King Down in the Jungle Room [Hook: Marc Cohn] [Hook: Marc Cohn] They've got catfish on the table They've got gospel in the air And Reverend Green will be glad to see you When you haven't got a prayer But boy you've got a prayer in Memphis [Verse 3: Marc Cohn] Now Muriel plays piano Every Friday at the Hollywood And they brought me down to see her And they asked me if I would Do a little number And I sang with all my might And she said "Tell me are you a Christian child?" And I said "Ma'am I am tonight" [Hook: Marc Cohn] x2 [Outro: Marc Cohn] Put on my blue suede shoes And I boarded the plane Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues In the middle of the pouring rain Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues In the middle of the pouring rain
