Cher Walking in Memphis Lyrics

Last updated: 12/27/2004 10:00:00 AM

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
