Back To Tupelo
(Album: Shangri-La)

Intro: Bm A


Bm
Around the time of 'clambake'
Movie number twenty-five
You and the lying Dutchman
Are still in overdrive
You're as strong as when you started
Mississippi in your soul
You can still be Marlon Brando
        A                Bm
And the king of rock and roll


Bm
It isn't just the records
No, you must have Hollywood
The songs alone are not enough
That much is understood
You'll soon be back in Memphis
Maybe then you'll know what to do
The storylines they're giving you
    A                Bm   Bm(n.B.)
Are just not ringing true


                   G G6 A D 
Oh, it's a ways to go
              G G6 A D 
Back to Tupelo
                   G G6 A D 
Oh, it's a ways to go
              G G6 A  
Back to Tupelo


G G6 A D Bm G G6 A D Bm G G6 A  


Bm
When you're young and beautiful
Your dreams are all ideals
Later on it's not the same
Lord, everything is real
Sixteen hundred miles of highway
Roll back to the truth
And a song to give your mother
        A               Bm
In your first recording booth


Bm
Around the time of 'clambake'
That old dream's still rolling on
Sometimes there'll be the feeling
Things are going wrong
The morning star is fading
Lord, the Mississippi's cold
You can still be Marlon Brando
        A                Bm(n.B.)
And the king of rock and roll


                    G G6 A D 
But, it's a ways to go
              G G6 A D 
Back to Tupelo
                   G G6 A D 
Oh, it's a ways to go
              G G6 A  
Back to Tupelo

  
G G6 A D Bm G G6 A D Bm G G6 A  


Bm (n.b.): no barré (004432)
G6= 320000
