Walking in Memphis Lyrics

Artist: Cher
Album: It's A Man's World

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 girl can be

Then I'm walking in Memphis

Chorus:
I was 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

When I was walking in Memphis

Chorus

Chorus 2:
Walking in Memphis
I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel

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

Now Gabriel plays piano
Every Friday at the Hollywood
And they brought me down to see him
They asked me if I would
Do a little number
And I sang with all my might
he said: "Tell me are you a Christian, child?"
And I said: "Man I am tonight"

Chorus 2 (Repeat)

Put on my blue suede shoes

In the Marc Cohn version,
it's 'now Muriel plays piano'
so I don't know if it'd be the same for this one.
