"Graceland" as written by and Paul Simon....
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, 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 she 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 feels the wind blow
I'm going to Graceland, in Memphis Tennessee, I'm going to Graceland
Poorboys and pilgrims with families and we are going to Graceland
My traveling companions are ghosts and empty sockets ghosts and empties
But I've reason to believe we both will be received, in Graceland

There is a girl in Austin, Texas and she calls herself the human trampoline
Sometimes when I'm falling, flying, tumbling in turmoil I say this is what she means
She means we're bouncing into Graceland
And I say losing love is like a window in your heart
Everybody sees you're blown apart, everybody feels the wind blow
And I'm going to Graceland, in Memphis Tennessee, I'm going to Graceland
For reasons I cannot explain, some part of me wants to see Graceland
And I may be obliged to defend every love and every ending
Or maybe there's no obligations now
Maybe I've a reason to believe we all will be received in Graceland

Oh, oh, Graceland, Graceland, I'm going to Graceland
