Graceland chords
Paul Simon 1986 *

Capo II

D G Bm A   D

The Mississippi Delta was shining
                   G
Like a National guitar
     Bm
I am following the river

Down the highway
                                A
Through the cradle of the civil war

G            D
I'm going to Graceland

Graceland
                 A
In Memphis Tennessee
    G        D         D C G
I'm going to Graceland

D
Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
    A      G        D        D C G
And we are going to Graceland
   D                                 A
My traveling companion is nine years old
G         D                         D C G
He is the child of my first marriage
         D
But I've reason to believe
   A              G
We both will be received
   D         D C G
In Graceland

D

She comes back to tell me she's gone
   G
As if I didn't know that
                           Bm
As if I didn't know my own bed
   A
As if I'd never noticed
                                      D
The way she brushed her hair from her forehead

And she said losing love
                         G
Is like a window in your heart
                      Bm     G
Everybody sees you're blown apart
                   A
Everybody sees the wind blow

    G        D
I'm going to Graceland
              A
Memphis Tennessee
    G        D         D C G
I'm going to Graceland
D
Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
    A      G        D         D C G
And we are going to Graceland

       D
And my traveling companions
                     G
Are ghosts and empty sockets
                          D       D C G
I'm looking at ghosts and empties
         D
But I've reason to believe
   A             G
We all will be received
   D        D C G
In Graceland

D

There is a girl in New York City
                                  G
Who calls herself the human trampoline
    Bm
And sometimes when I'm falling, flying

Or tumbling in turmoil I say
A
WOh, so this is what she means
                D
She means we're bouncing into Graceland

And I see losing love
                         G
Is like a window in your heart
                      Bm
Everybody sees you're blown apart
                    A
Everybody feels the wind blow

        D                      D C G
Oooo in Graceland, in Graceland
             D        D C G
I'm going to Graceland
              D
For reasons I cannot explain
                        A        G
There's some part of me wants to see
D        D C G
Graceland

               D
And I may be obliged to defend
                  G
Every love, every ending
                 D                  D C G
Or maybe there's no obligations now
             D
Maybe I've a reason to believe
   A             G
We all will be received
   D         D C G
In Graceland

D G Bm A   D . . .
