Graceland Lyrics

The Mississippi delta was 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
In Memphis, Tennessee
I'm going to Graceland

Poor boys...

    This is the anthem to the official shrine of America's country and western demographic.
    "The Mississippi Delta shines like a National Guitar...." says it all.
    Graceland is the shrine, and the PWT riding on a bus "through the cradle of the Civil War' is seeking spiritual redemption at this shrine. " I do believe that we will be received at Graceland..."This is the kind of language people use when going to The Vatican.

    Many of his songs are about traveling. The rhythm reflects movement. His repetoire is influenced by South American and African Cultures. He is prolific and wonderful to hear.
