Well, since my baby left me,
I found a new place to dwell.
It's down at the end of lonely street
at Heartbreak Hotel.

You make me so lonely baby,
I get so lonely,
I get so lonely I could die.

And although it's always crowded,
you still can find some room.
Where broken hearted lovers
do cry away their gloom.

You make me so lonely baby,
I get so lonely,
I get so lonely I could die.

Well, the Bell hop's tears keep flowin',
and the desk clerk's dressed in black.
Well they been so long on lonely street
They ain't ever gonna look back.

You make me so lonely baby,
I get so lonely,
I get so lonely I could die.

Hey now, if your baby leaves you,
and you got a tale to tell.
Just take a walk down lonely street
to Heartbreak Hotel.

    General CommentI'm glad they didn't release this officaily. It is available on demos though. If it would have been released on the UYI's I think they would have slowed it down to sound more similar to Elvis's version. When they recorded it in 1986 they were all about rocking hard.

    General CommentThis is a fantastic GnR cover that is right up there with Mama Kin and Nice Boys. If you ever find the compilation album (it's called 'Hollywood Rocks!') that has the 1986 demo version, get it. There's a lot of mediocre BS on it, but if you like GnR it's worth it just to get this take on an Elvis classic. The original Hollywood Rose version of "Anything Goes" is on there too.
