                Capo 2

D ...
G Bm A  D

D                                                  G
The Mississippi Delta was shining like a National guitar
     Bm                                                               A
I am following the river down the highway through the cradle of the civil war

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

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

D ...
                                      G
She comes back to tell me she's gone; as if I didn't know that
                           Bm       A
As if I didn't know my own bed; as if I'd never noticed
                                      D
The way she brushed her hair from her forehead
                                                 G
And she said losing love is like a window in your heart
                      Bm                              A
Everybody sees you're blown apart, everybody sees the wind blow


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

D                                        A      G        D         C G
Poorboys and pilgrims with families, and we are going to Graceland

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

D ...
                                                                    G
There is a girl in New York City who calls herself the human trampoline
    Bm
And sometimes when I'm falling, flying, or tumbling in turmoil I say
A                                                              D
Whoa, so this is what she means: she means we're bouncing into Graceland
                                               G
And I see losing love is like a window in your heart
                      Bm                               A
Everybody sees you're blown apart; everybody feels the wind blow

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

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

D               G           Bm                 A   
Oooh.....
A           D                          D     A     G                 D         C G
Whoa... in Graceland, in Graceland, in Graceland, ...   I'm going to Graceland

( D                        D     A     G ) x repeat / fade
