Marc Cohn – Walking in Memphis
 F   G     C          Am
Put on my blue suede shoes
      F    G      C    Am
And I boarded the plane
F                   G           C     Am
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
F                    G       C   Am
In the middle of the pouring rain
F G  C     Am F                   G    C Am
W. C. Handy -- won't you look down over me
F            G       C         Am
Yeah I got a first class ticket
           F         G       C
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

C        Am         F      G  C
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Am              F        G           C
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Am         F      G  C
Walking in Memphis
Am              F              G     Gsus
But do I really feel the way I feel?

F       G        C    Am
Saw the ghost of Elvis
F  G     C  Am
On Union Avenue
F            G         C        Am
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
       F           G          C      Am
Then I watched him walk right through
      F           G       C      Am
Now security they did not see him
          F        G         C   Am
They just hovered 'round his tomb
              F             G      C               Am
But there's a pretty little thing, Waiting for the King

Down in the Jungle Room

CHORUS:
  C        Am         F      G   C
  Then I'm walking in Memphis
  Am              F        G           C
  Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
  Am         F      G  C
  Walking in Memphis
  Am              F              G     Gsus
  But do I really feel the way I feel?

            Csus4          C     Csus4 C
They've got catfish on the table
            Csus4         C   Csus4 C
They've got gospel in the air
                   E7         F
And Reverend Green be glad to see you
         F#dim         G7    C/G   C
When you haven't got a prayer
NС.                            F     G  C  Am
But boy you've got a prayer in Memphis

F          G     C    Am
Now Muriel plays piano
F     G             C    Am
Every Friday at the Hollywood
F        G                  C      Am
And they brought me down to see her
F        G             C    Am
And they asked me if I would
F    G      C     Am
Do a little number
      F         G      C    Am
And I sang with all my might
               F           G     C         Am
And she said, "Tell me are you a Christian child?"
N. C.
And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"

C        Am         F    G   C
Then I'm walking in Memphis
Am              F        G           C
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Am         F     G   C
Walking in Memphis
Am              F              G     Gsus
But do I really feel the way I feel?

F   G     C          Am
Put on my blue suede shoes
      F    G      C    Am
And I boarded the plane
F                   G           C     Am
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
F                    G       C   Am
In the middle of the pouring rain
F                   G           C     Am
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
F                    G       C   Am
In the middle of the pouring rain
