Paul Anka lyrics : "Walking In Memphis"

[Originally by 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


[Chorus:]
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


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 'round his tomb
But there's a pretty little thing

Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room


[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

But boy you've got a prayer in Memphis

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'


[Chorus]

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
