The Mississippi Delta
Was shining like a National guitar
I am following the river down the highway
Through the cradle of the Civil War

I'm going to Graceland, Graceland
Honey, in Memphis, Tennessee
I'm going to Graceland
Poor boys and pilgrims with families
And we are going to Graceland

My traveling companion is nine years old
The child of my first marriage
But I've reason to believe
We both will be received in Graceland

She comes back to tell me, she's gone
As if I didn't know that
As if I didn't know my own bed
As if I'd never noticed
The way she brushed her
Hair from her forehead

And she said losing love is like
A window in your heart
Everybody sees you're blown apart
Everybody feels the wind blow

I'm going to Graceland
In Memphis, Tennessee
I'm going to Graceland
Poor boys and pilgrims with families
And we are going to Graceland

My traveling companions are ghosts
And empty sockets, ghosts and empties
But I've reason to believe
We all will be received in Graceland

There is a girl in Austin Texas
And she calls herself the human trampoline
But sometimes when I'm falling
Flying, tumbling in turmoil
I say this is what she means
She means we're bouncing into Graceland

And I see losing love is like
A window in your heart
Everybody sees you're blown apart
Everybody feels the wind blow

And I'm going to Graceland
In Memphis, Tennessee
I'm going to Graceland
For reasons I cannot explain
Some part of me wants to see Graceland

And I may be obliged to defend
Every love and every end
Or maybe there's no obligations now
Maybe I've a reason to believe
We all will be received in Graceland

Graceland
Graceland
I'm going to Graceland
