Lyrics to "Memphis, Tennessee" song by Roy Orbison: Long Distance Information, give me Memphis, Tennessee  . Long Distance Information, give me Memphis, Tennessee. Help me find the party that tried to get in touch with me. They would not leave a number, but I know the place to call, Cause my uncle took a message, and he wrote it on the wall. Long Distance Information, get in touch with my Marie. She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis, Tennessee. Her home is on the south side, high up on a ridge, Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge

When Roy Orbison started the sessions for what became the Memphis album in March 1972, he was on a break from his almost relentless touring schedule and ready to make the follow-up to his previous MGM release, Roy Orbison Sings.

On one level, it shows his rock & roll batteries recharged with the opening number, "Memphis, Tennessee. But then it moves on to more familiar sentimental country-pop territory of the kind that Glen Campbell had been charting with and filling his albums with for a few years - and after that comes a hot, beat-driven, chorus-laden, big-sounding number.

Milestones (Roy Orbison album). Roy Orbison had been disillusioned with his MGM contract which he signed in July 1965 as certain albums were not coming out globally and MGM and London Records gave up paying his record advance of one million dollars. After recording the album in June 1973, he left the label and would never commmit to a long term contract again. Milestones only received a US release due to Decca releasing Orbison from his contract. The album had two singles: "I Wanna Live" and "Blue Rain (Coming Down)".
