=== HOWDY =============================================================================

   Hey, this is my first tab (even though the majority of it isn't mine, I've just
   rearranged it into a more readable format), so sorry if some things are a little
   weird, please don't be too harsh!

   Walking in Memphis is a beautiful song, and even though it's arranged on piano
   it works really well with a solo acoustic or as part of a band.

   This is the way I play the song. I learned it off Joe D (Gocaps)'s tab, and
   modified it a little in relation to some little changes chord-wise, lyrics-wise
   and just a bit of tidying up to make the tab a little more readable.

   I hope you can make some good use of this tab, please let me know if you use it 
   and maybe rate it as well! Thankyou folks, have fun and keep jammin'!

=== VERSE ONE =========================================================================

   F   G     C          Am
   Put on my blue suede shoes
         F    G      C    Am 
   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 (Same throughout the song) =================================================

   C        Am         F      G         C
   Then I'm walking in Memphis 
   Am              F        G           C
   Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale 
   Am         F             G           C
   Walking in Memphis 
   Am              F              G     Gsus
   But do I really feel the way I feel? 


=== VERSE TWO =========================================================================

   F       G        C    Am
   Saw the ghost of Elvis 
   F  G     C  Am
   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 'round his tomb 
                 F             G      C               Am
   But there's a pretty little thing, Waiting for the King 
   NC.
   Down in the Jungle Room 


=== CHORUS (Same throughout the song) =================================================

   C        Am         F      G         C
   Then I'm walking in Memphis 
   Am              F        G           C
   Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale 
   Am         F             G           C
   Walking in Memphis 
   Am              F              G     Gsus
   But do I really feel the way I feel?

   F          G     C    Am
   Now Muriel plays piano 
   F     G             C    Am
   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         Am 
   And she said, "Tell me are you a Christian child?" 
   N.C.
   And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"

   Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale 
   Am         F             G           C
   Walking in Memphis 
   Am              F              G     Gsus
   But do I really feel the way I feel?

   F   G     C          Am
   Put on my blue suede shoes
         F    G      C    Am 
   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
   Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues 
   F                    G       C   Am  
   In the middle of the pouring rain
