Well she drew out all her money from the Southern Trust
And put her little boy on a Greyhound Bus
Leaving Memphis with a guitar in his hand
On a one-way ticket to the promised land

Well hey little girl with the red dress on
There's a party tonight down in Memphis town
I'll be going down there if you need a ride
A man on the radio says, "Elvis Presley's died"

We drove down into Memphis, the sky was hard and black
Up over the ridge came a white Cadillac
They'd drawn out all his money and they laid him in the back
A woman cried from the roadside, "Oh he's gone, he's gone"

They found him slumped up against the drain
With a whole lot of trouble, hey running through his veins
Bye-bye Johnny, Johnny bye-bye
You didn't have to die, you didn't have to die
