Album: Marc Cohn (1991). Charted: 22 13. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Cohn wrote this song after traveling to Memphis to check out Graceland, which is Elvis Presley's mansion and a kitschy tourist destination. He made sure to see an Al Green sermon when he was there, but it was a trip out of Memphis along Highway 61 where the meaty part of his journey took place. In the desolate Delta, he saw a sign that said "Hollywood," which turned out to be the Hollywood Cafe, which is a small diner/music joint in Tunica County, Mississippi. Cohn saw her again when he took another trip down south and played her some of his new songs, but Muriel died in 1990.

Walking In Memphis Lyrics. 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 . Handy won't you look down over me Yeah I got a first class ticket But I'm as blue as a boy can be. Then I'm walking in Memphis Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale Walking in Memphis But do I really feel the way I feel

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.
