Lyrics

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 In Memphis Tennessee I`m going to Graceland Poorboys and Pilgrims with families And we are going to Graceland My traveling companion is nine years old He is 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 sees the wind blow I`m going to Graceland Memphis Tennessee I`m going to Graceland Poorboys and Pilgrims with families And we are going to Graceland And my traveling companions Are ghosts and empty sockets I`m looking at ghosts and empties But I`ve reason to believe We all will be received In Graceland

There is a girl in New York City Who calls herself the human trampoline And sometimes when I`m falling, flying Or tumbling in turmoil I say Oh, so 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 In Graceland, in Graceland I`m going to Graceland For reasons I cannot explain There`s some part of me wants to see Graceland And I may be obliged to defend Every love, every ending Or maybe there`s no obligations now Maybe I`ve a reason to believe We all will be received In Graceland
