Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain

W. C. Handy
Won't you look down over me
Yeah I got a first class ticket
But I'm as blue as a girl can be

[Chorus]
Then I'm walking in Memphis
I was Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis But do I really feel the way I feel

Saw the ghost of Elvis On Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
Then I watched him walk right through
Now security they did not see him
They just hovered around his tomb
But there's a pretty little thing Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room

[Chorus]

They've got catfish on the table
They've got gospel in the air
And Reverend Green be glad to see you
When you haven't got a prayer boy you're got a prayer in Memphis
Now Gabriel plays piano Every Friday at the Hollywood
And they brought me down to see him
And they asked me if I would,
Do a little number
And I sang with all my might, he said,
Tell me are you a Christian child?
And I said That I am tonight

[Chorus]
