The Mississippi Delta was

shining like a National guitar.
                           A
I am following the river down the

Highway through the cradle of the Civil war
                                        B

I'm going to Graceland. Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee,
I'm going to Gracland.
Poor boys and pilgrims with families
and we are going to Graceland.
My traveling companion is nine years old
He is the child of my first marriage,
But I've reason to believe we both will be received
In Graceland

This seems pretty accurate. The only thing is it's an E to D arpeggio riff instead of E to B at the end of the chorus.

the licks are inaccurate, specifically the turnaround lick / run in the chorus which should go E major triad, D major triad then A major
