Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
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

4 boys promenade in Memphis
Swing and all promenade
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade half, pass the ocean, extend
Swing thru, girls cross run, girls run
Couples trade, ferris wheel
Centers veer right and veer left
Touch 1/4, walk & dodge, chase right
Swing, promenade
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
They said hey boy do a little number
So, I sang with all my might
She said, "Tell me are you a Christian, child?"
And I said, "Ma'am, I am tonight!"

4 boys promenade in Memphis
Swing and all promenade
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?


CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Now I'm walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off Beale

Left allemande the corner, dosado you own
Left allemande and weave the ring
Now I'm walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?

Walkin' In Memphis Lyrics ID: 1361

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of a pouring rain

WC Handy, won't you look down over me
Cause I've got a first class ticket
And I'm as blue as a boy can be

Chorus:
Walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
Do I really feel the way I feel

Saw the ghost of Elvis
Down on Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
And watched him walk right through

Now security, they did not see him
They just hovered around his tomb
There's a pretty little thing waiting on the King
Down in the jungle room

Chorus

They've got catfish on the table
They've got gospel in the air
And Reverend Green, be glad to see you
When you haven't got a prayer

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 then asked me if I would

Do a little number
So I played with all my might
She said tell me, are you a Christian
And I said, ma'am I am tonight

Chorus

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of a pouring rain

Lyrics by Mark Cohn.
Recorded by Lonestar.
