Story

 

 

This song came about because my cousin Billy was getting married and I needed to find a song to sing and  dedicate to him and his bride Lori at there wedding

You know my cousin is simply the biggest ELVIS fan I know or for that matter the biggest ELVIS fan the world should know.

Only thing is I hate ELVIS....But he's cool with that besides I just love my cousin so I found this song that inspired me to sing, and was also about ELVIS and Memphis

That song of coarse is "Walkin' In Memphis" Which has now become one of favorite signature songs to sing...

So..Thanks Billy & Lori

Thanks for your inspiration

Lyrics

Walking In Memphis

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 Cause I got a first-class ticket and I’m as blue as a boy can be Then walkin in Memphis walkin with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel Saw the ghost of Elvis on a Union Avenue Followed him up to the gates of Graceland and I watched him walk right through Now security they did not see him they just hovered ‘round his tomb There’s a pretty little thing waitin’ for “The King” down in the jungle room Walkin in Memphis walkin with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel They’ve got catfish on the table ----- they’ve got gospel in the air And Reverend Green he be glad to see ya When you haven’t got a prayer ------------ but boy you’ve got a prayer in Memphis Now Muriel plays the piano every Friday at the Hollywood And they brought me down to see her and they asked me if I would Do a little number and I sang with all my might And she said “Tell me are you Christian and I said ‘Ma’am I am tonight Walkin in Memphis walkin with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel Walkin in Memphis walkin with Elvis ten feet off of Beale I’m walkin in Memphis I’m walkin with Elvis and it’s so real Walkin in Memphis but do I really feel the way I feel ---- 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---
