from galway to graceland Richard Thompson
Date: Thu, 12 May 94 19:19:37 -0400 From: Phillip Charles Saunders From Galway to Graceland Richard Thompson, from the CD "Watching the Dark" transcribed by firstname.lastname@example.org I play this with a dropped D (EBGDAD) tuning, capoed at the 4th fret. I'm not sure what tuning RT uses, but I know he played this with a capo. You can fool with open string runs based on a D/F# chord. D D Oh she dressed in the dark A And she whispered Amen D G/B A D She was pretty in pink like a young girl again D D Twenty years married A But she never thought twice D G/B A D She sneaked out the door and walked into the night A G/B D And silver wings carried her over the sea A G/B D From the west coast of Ireland to west Tennesee D To be with her sweetheart A She left everything D G/B A D From Galway to Graceland to be with the King She was humming "Suspicion" That's the song she liked best She had "Elvis I love you" tatooed on her breast They landed in Memphis Her heart beat so fast She'd dreamed for so long, now she'd see him at last She was down by his graveside day after day Come closing time they would drag her away To be with her sweetheart She left everything From Galway to Graceland to be with the King Solo They came in the thousands From the whole human race To pay their respects at his last resting place Ah but blindly she knealt there And she told him her dreams And she thought that he answered, or that's how it seemed And they dragged her away, it was handcuffs this time She said my dear man, "Are you out of your mind?" Can't you see that we're married? I'm wearing his ring I've come from Galway to Graceland to be with the King From Galway to Graceland to be with the King
