LoneStar - Walking in Memphis

Intro - F - G - C - Am - F - G - C - Am

(verse 1)
F   G     C          Am        F     G       C    Am
Put on my blue suede shoes 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,


(chorus)
                      F      G - C
Then I'm walking in Memphis, 
Am                    F        G        Am
I was walking with my feet ten feet off Beale,
Am            F    G - C
Walking in Memphis,
Am              F         G      F - C - F - C#
But do I really feel the way I feel,


(verse 2)
F       G        C    Am     F      G   C   Am
Saw the ghost of Elvis,  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 around his tomb,
               F              G     C              Am
But there's a pretty little thing waiting for the King,
F    (no chord)      C
Down in the jungle room,


(chorus)
                      F      G - C
Then I'm walking in Memphis, 
Am                    F        G        Am
I was walking with my feet ten feet off Beale,
Am            F    G - C
Walking in Memphis,
Am              F         G      F - C - F - C
But do I really feel the way I feel,


(bridge)
              F             C    F - C
They've got catfish on the table,
             F            C    F   C
They've got gospel in the air,
             E  E7      F
And Reverend Green, be glad to see you,
        F#dim          G    G7
When you haven't got a prayer,
                    F-G-C-Am-F-G-C-Am
You got a prayer in Memphis,


(verse 3)
     F      G          C    Am         F            G       C Am
Now, Muriel plays the piano,    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      
She said Tell me, are you a Christian
   Am      F    (no chord)   C
And I said Ma'am, I am tonight,

(chorus)
                      F      G - C
Then I'm walking in Memphis, 
Am                    F        G        Am
I was walking with my feet ten feet off Beale,
Am            F    G - C
Walking in Memphis,
Am              F         C  G  C 
But do I really feel the way I feel,
                      F   G - C
Oh I'm walking in Memphis, 
Am               F        G        Am
Walking with my feet ten feet off Beale,
Am              F    G - C
Oh walking in Memphis,
Am              F         G     C 
But do I really feel the way I feel,
                 F - G - C
Walking in Memphis,
Am - F - G - Am - F - G - C - Am - F - G
Oh ------------------
