    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.
