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,
Memphis, Tennessee
I'm going to 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 brushes 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

And there is a girl in New York City
Who calls herself the human trampoline
And sometimes when I'm falling, stumbling,
tumbling in turmoil I say
Whoa is this what she means
She means we're bouncing into Graceland
I see 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
Memphis, Tennessee
I'm going to Graceland
