The protagonist of "Memphis, Tennessee" isn't in Memphis; he just needs to talk to his daughter, Marie. Really though, this song is a showcase for Berry's legendary licks. Rock and roll wouldn't be the same without this giant's influence. This track could be an instrumental named "Memphis, Tennessee" and it would still have been adopted as an an anthem.
