Lonestar video  "Walking In Memphis" by Lonestar (Mark Cohn)

1st Verse

Put on my blue suede shoes and I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of a pourin' rain
W. C. Handy
Won't you look down over me
'Cause I've got a first-class ticket
And I'm blue as a boy can be


(Oh) Walkin' in Memphis (walkin' in Memphis)
Walkin' with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walkin' in Memphis (walkin' in Memphis)
(But) do I really feel the way I feel

2nd Verse

Saw the ghost of Elvis down on Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
And watched him walk right through
Now security they did not see him
They just hovered around his tomb
There's a pretty little thing
Waitin' on 'The King'
Down in the Jungle Room

(Repeat Chorus)


They've got catfish on the table
They've got gospel in the air
And Reverend Green be glad to see you
When you haven't got a prayer
You got a prayer in Memphis

3rd Verse

Now Muriel plays the 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
She said
'Tell me are you a Christian' and I said
'Ma'am, I am tonight'

(Chorus Out)
