From Galway To Graceland  Richard Thompson

[D]Oh she dressed in the [D]dark
And she whispered A[A]men
She was [D]pretty in [G/B]pink like a [A]young girl a[Bm]gain
[D]Twenty years marri[D]ed
But she never thought [A]twice
She [D]sneaked out the [G/B]door and walked [A]into the [D]night
And [A]silver wings carried her [G/B]over the [D]sea
>From the[A] west coast of Ireland to[G/B] west Tenn[A]esee
To be with her sweet[D]heart
She left every[A]thing
>From[D] Galway to[G/B] Graceland to[A] be with the[D] 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


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
