Chorus:  (Chords and Lyrics)

G            D
I'm going to Graceland

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

D
Poor boys 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


Additional Verses:  (Lyrics and Chords)


Verse 2: (1:32)

D  
She comes back to tell me she's gone 
                    G (Begin verse pattern)
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 

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


Verse 3:
D
There is a girl in New York City 
                                     G (Begin verse pattern)
Who calls herself the human trampoline 
       Bm
And sometimes when I'm falling, flying, or tumbling in turmoil I say 
A
Oh, so this is what she means 
                               D
She means we're bouncing into Graceland 
D
And I see losing love 
                         G
Is like a window in your heart 
                                Bm
And everybody sees you're blown apart 
                         A
Everybody feels the wind blow 



End with intro/verse pattern and the chorus riffs
