Walking In Memphis Chord Marc Cohn

Capo 0 with [C] [Am] [F] [G] [E] [F#m]


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 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?

VERSE
Saw the ghost of El—vis
On Union Ave—nue
Followed him up to the gates of Grace—land
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,
Wait—ing for the King.
Down in the Jungle Room

CHORUS
When I was walking in Mem—phis
I was Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Mem—phis
But do I really feel the way I feel?

SOLO

BRIDGE
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 Mem—phis

VERSE
Now, Muriel plays piano
Every Friday at the Holly-wood
And they brought me down to see her
And they asked me if I would
Do a little num-ber
And I sang with all my might
And she said, ”Tell me are you a Christian child?”
And I said, ”Ma’am I am to-night”

CHORUS
Walking in Mem—phis (Walking in Memphis)
I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale. (Walk, walk, walk)
Walking in Mem—phis (Walking in Memphis)
But do I really feel the way I feel? (Walk, walk, walk)
Walking in Mem—phis (Walking in Memphis)
I was Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale. (Walk, walk, walk)
Walking in Mem—phis (Walking in Memphis)
But do I really feel the way I feel?

SOLO

OUTRO
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
