"Elvis Presley Blvd." as written by and Billy Joel....
Once long ago, all the faithful held a show
Down in Elvis Presley Blvd. on Memphis Radio
Where the hopeless held a vigil and the nameless played the charts
Where the losers lost their sorrow and the lonely left their hearts

Step on these shoes then I'll see you in hell
"Love me so tender," I cried
Save me a room in the Heartbreak Hotel
I'm so alone, I could die

I took a ride with my baby by my side
And the Elvis Presley Blvd. where all the faithful cried
And I saw that silent mansion and I knew that I was lost
They were selling plastic souvenirs of Elvis on the cross

Step on these shoes and I'll see you in hell
"Love me so tender," I cried
Save me a room in the Heartbreak Hotel
I'm so alone, I could die

Drive down that road tonight, everyone is gone
Nobody's home but the light's always on

Man I was beat, I was driven by the heat
Down to Elvis Presley Blvd. in a one-way dead end street
And I smashed my car to pieces and I said goodbye to youth
I had all the ugly rumors and I could not face the truth

Save me a room in the Heartbreak Hotel
I'm so alone, I could die
Drive down that road tonight, everyone is gone
Nobody's home but the light's always on

    General CommentThese lyrics are really wrong. Should be

    Once long ago, all the faithful held a show
    Down at Elvis Presley Blvd. on Memphis radio
    Where the hopeless held a vigil and the nameless played the charts
    Where the losers lost their sorrow and the lonely left their hearts

    Step on these shoes and I'll see you in hell
    Love me so tender I cry
    Save me a room in the Heartbreak Hotel
    I'm so alone I could die

    I took a ride with my baby by my side
    Down to Elvis Presly Blvd. where all the faithful cried
    And I saw that silent mansion and I knew that I was lost
    They were selling plastic souvenirs of Elvis on the cross!

    Step on these shoes and I'll see you in hell
    Love me so tender I cry
    Save me a room in the Heartbreak Hotel
    I'm so alone I could die

    Drive down that road tonight! Everyone is gone.
    Nobody's home but the light's always on...

    Man, I was beat! I was driven by the heat
    Down to Elvis Presley Blvd., a one-way dead-end street
    And I smashed my car to pieces and I said goodbye to youth
    I heard all the ugly rumors but I could not face the truth

    Save me a room in the Heartbreak Hotel
    I'm so alone I could die.

    Drive down that road tonight! Everyone is gone.
    Nobody's home but the light's always on...



    Anyway, it's about someone disappointed at the fanatical soulless worship of his musical hero, compared to the better days while his hero lived.
