It was 1957, Evlis Presley came in the
Dora took the order, bussed the plates,
Col. Tom paid the check and Elvis Presley

One was making wine in Canaan, the other

The Caddy in the drive. With plaster statues,
PRESLEY LAND. She said he was just a poor man's
Now that he is dead and gone she shares

One was making wine in Canaan, the other

Better cash was close at hand.
"Down the way they're selling German cars.
We can kick the Spanish out for good,
Stock of all my friends, with that crazy old

"They sold my house, can't get it back,
My Cadillac...even if I could do that."
And the Gods I loved were poor white trash.
Tipping waitresses Cadillacs...
