Tuesday Tune: ‘Walking in Memphis’ by Marc Cohn

April 29, 2014

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

Good luck getting that tune out of your head!

Marc Cohn is the mastermind behind the timeless song “Walking in Memphis,” and he’ll be performing that one, among other hit songs, in McGlohon Theater Saturday, July 12.
