        D       Em
         Elvis has just *left the        building -
        C       D
         Those are his footprints, right         there
        D       Em
         Elvis has just left the         building -
        F       G
To       climb up that heavenly          stair %

        Em      D
He gave away     Cadillacs       once in a while,
        F       G
Had      sex in his underpants,          Yes, he had style!
        Em      D
         Bell-bottom jump suits? That's          them in a pile,
        F       G
But he   don't need 'em now, 'Cause he's         makin' Jesus smile!

        D       Em
         Elvis has just *left the        building -
        C       D
         Those are his footprints, right         there
        D       Em
         Elvis has just left the         building -
        F       G
To       climb up that heavenly          stair %

        Em      D
The      Angels all love him, He         brings them relief
        F       G
With     droplets of moisture from       his handkerchief!
        Em      D
         Cher'bim 'n ser'phim whizz      over his head -
        F       G
Jesus,   let him come back! We don't     want Elvis dead!

        D       Em
         Elvis has just *left the        building -
        C       D
         Those are his footprints, right         there
        D       Em
         Elvis has just left the         building -
        F       G
To       climb up that heavenly          stair %

        Em      D
So       what if he looks like a         wart-hog in heat?
        F       G
He       knows we all love him - We'll   just watch him eat,
        Em      D
So       take down the foil from his     hotel retreat,
        F       G
And      bring back The King for the     man in the street!

        D       Em
         Elvis has just *left the        building -
        C       D
         Those are his footprints, right         there
        D       Em
         Elvis has just left the         building -
        F       Am      G       D       C       D
He's     up there with   Jesus, in a     big     pur     ple    
chair

The interpretation of the last line is my own but may be close to
reality!

The * indicates where you can do the "hippie" lick, i.e. by fingering
a regular old first position D chord then momentarily dropping your
pinky down on the 3rd fret E string.

% indicates a good place to put in a little bass run (eighth notes):
Low E 3rd fret
Low A open
Low A 2nd fret
Low A open
Low E 3rd fret
then hit the Em chord on the down beat
