Lyrics

*The Mississippi delta aas shining like a national guitar*
*I am following the river*
*Down the highway through the cradle of the civil war*

*I'm going to Graceland*
*Graceland in Memphis*
*Tennessee*
I'm going to Graceland
Poorboys and pilgrims with families
And we are going to Graceland

My traveling companion is nine years old
He is the child of my first marriage
*But I've reason to believe we both will be received in Graceland*

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

*And she said losing love is like a window in your heart*
Everybody sees you're blown apart
Everybody sees the wind blow

I'm going to Graceland
*Memphis*
*Tennessee*
I'm going to Graceland
Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
And we are going to Graceland

*And my traveling companions are ghosts and empty sockets*
I'm looking at ghosts and empties
*But I've reason to believe we all will be received in Graceland*

*There is a girl in New York City who calls herself the human trampoline*
*And sometimes when I'm falling*
*Flying or tumbling in turmoil I say, "Whoa"*
*"So this is what she means"*
She means we're bouncing into Graceland

*And I see losing love is like a window in your heart*
Everybody sees you're blown apart
Everybody feels the wind blow
*Ooh*
*Ooh*
*Ooh*
*Ooh*

*In Graceland*
*In Graceland*
I'm going to Graceland
For reasons I cannot explain
There's some part of me wants to see Graceland

*And I may be obliged to defend every love*
*Every ending or maybe there's no obligations now*
*Maybe I've a reason to believe we all will be received in Graceland*

*Ooh*
*Ooh*
*Ooh*

*Whoa*
*In Graceland*
*In Graceland*
*In Graceland*
*I'm going to Graceland*

    One of Paul Simon's best songs ever lyrically, musically, and vocally. Beautiful and poignant images created by his lyrics, a wonderful guitar lick in the chorus, and a nice and well-sung melody create a wonderful finished product.
