[intro] F    C       C G C
        
[verse]
          C
You're a little long in the tooth, babe
        F                    C
Me, I'm puffy and under the weather     
         C        C/B       Am
But the drunker I get, that band gets tighter,
    D7                     G
and honey, you're lookin' better
   C
So here's to dim lights in dingy bars,
       F
to the alcohol haze and the smoke
        C         C/B          Am
and the chance to reinvent ourselves
     D7         G      C
Hey baby, let's go for broke

[chorus]
    F           C         G        C
And pretend I'm Elvis for just one night
       F        C         D7            G
I will call you Priscilla, if that's alright
             F           C              E     Am
Hey don't we look sorta like em' in the neon light?
      D                  Dm            G     F    C
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin',  for just one night

[verse]
         C
Now it's one a.m and we follow the band
       F                C
down a dead and lonely street
         C     C/B       Am
Here's a song about our destiny,
   D7                G
how we were meant to meet
    C
So drink up honey and wrap me
        F
in good looks, fortune and fame
        C        C/B         Am
I don't need to know who you really are
          D7       G      C
You don't need to know my name

[chorus]
    F           C         G        C
And pretend I'm Elvis for just one night
       F        C         D7            G
I will call you Priscilla, if that's alright
             F           C              E     Am
Hey don't we look sorta like em' in the neon light?
      D                  Dm            G     F    C
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin',  for just one night

[bridge]
         Am                                        C
Two more drinks and that cab outside will become a limo
        Am                                        Em
You and me we gotta hang on tight to this fragile spell
    Dm                                      Am
But girl, it ain't easy and I get queasy as hell 
Dm 
lookin' at a map where every road leads back
      G                      G7
to my room at the Heartbreak Hotel

[verse}
           C
We all need God's redemption, honey
        F               C
Tonight Graceland is a bar
       C   C/B       Am
And even if I don't sing too good,
    D7          G
or play the guitar
C
I think I could love you tender,
F
treat you like a queen,
       C      C/B    Am
We can work a little magic 
           D7      G      C
If you'll imagine I'm the King

[chorus]
    F           C         G        C
And pretend I'm Elvis for just one night
       F        C         D7            G
I will call you Priscilla, if that's alright
             F           C              E    Am
Hey don't we look sorta like em' in the neon light?
      D                  Dm            G     F    C
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin',  for just one night
      D                  Dm            G     F    C
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin',  for just one night
