How To Play
Capo:2nd fret INTRO D G Bm A D VERSE 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 REFRAIN 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 VERSE 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 CHORUS 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 VERSE 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 CHORUS 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 . . . * Alternate: open D = E G = A Bm = C#m A = B C = D
