Graceland

    E
The Mississippi Delta
                               A
Was shining like a National guitar
     C#m
I am following the river
Down the highway
                                B
Through the cradle of the civil war

A             E
I'm going to Graceland
Graceland
                 B
In Memphis Tennessee
    A         E        D A
I'm going to Graceland
E
Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
    B      A         E        D A
And we are going to Graceland
    E                                B
My traveling companion is nine years old
A         E                          D A
He is the child of mv first marriage
         E
But I've reason to believe
                  B
We both will be received
A   E
In Graceland

She comes back to tell me she's gone
   A
As if I didn't know that
                           C#m
As if I didn't know my own bed
   B
As if I'd never noticed
                                      E
The way she brushed her hair from her forehead
And she said losing love
Is like a window in your heart
                      C#m
Everybody sees you're blown apart
               B
Everybody sees the wind blow

    A         E
I'm going to Graceland
              B
Memphis Tennessee
    A        E         D A
I'm going to Graceland
E
Poorboys and Pilgrhns with families
    B      A        E         D A
And we are going to Graceland
       E
And my traveling companions
                     B  A
Are ghosts and empty sockets
    E                             D A
I'm looking at ghosts and empties
         E
But I've reason to believe
                 B
We all will be received
A   E        D A E
In Graceland

There is a girl in New York City
                                  A
Who calls herself the human trampoline
    C#m
And sometimes when I'm falling, flylng
Or tumbling in turmoil I say
B
Oh, so this is what she means
                               E
She means we're bouncing into Graceland
And I see losing love
Is like a window in your heart
                      C#m
Everybody sees you're blown apart
                    B
Everybody feels the wind blow

   E                       B A
In Graceland, in Graceland
              E        D
I'm going to Graceland
A             E
For reasons I cannot explain
                        B        A
There's some part of me wants to see
E         D
Graceland
    A          E
And I may be obliged to defend
                  B
Everv love, every ending
   A             E                  D A
Or maybe there's no obligations now
             E
Maybe I've a reason to believe
                 B
We all will be received
A   E
In Graceland
