Lyrics

A Long Way from Graceland

Tornado sirens were screamin’ like cats
As I woke up this morning in a very strange land
I saw a man in black with a pink Cadillac down the road
Strummin a guitar and singin’ the blues into an!! old microphone
So opened up the front door and stepped outside
As he approached with a snear in his smile
I said hey man can you help me find my way home
He raised up one of his eyebrows and said!! “hey man, let’s go”

Yippie yi yay, Yippie yi oh
You’re a long way from Graceland, so far from home
Yippie yi yay, Yippie yi oh
You’re a long way from Graceland, out in the cold

Jumped in his Caddy turned the radio up
Speakers were dancin’ to Jailhouse Rock
With the wind in our hair we were cruisin’ at top speed
Drinkin’ spicy mustard tequila shots and smoking!! carpet weed
The tires were flat and we’re runnin’ on fumes
Mad as a hatter high on mushrooms
Screamin’ out loud “I must be dead”
He just leaned over and in a Southern drawl !! this is what he said

Yippie yi yay, Yippie yi oh
You’re a long way from Graceland, so far from home
Yippie yi yay, Yippie yi oh
You’re a long way from Graceland, out in the cold

Drove all night to get back to the Sun
Caught in the eye as we spun and spun… …
Singin’ praise to the king with a new tattoo
Clickin’ the heels of my old worn out!! blue suede boots

Yippie yi yay, Yippie yi oh
You’re a long way from Graceland, so far from home
Yippie yi yay, Yippie yi oh
You’re a long way from Graceland, out in the cold

Yippie yi yay, Yippie yi oh
You’re a long way from Graceland, out in the cold
You’re long way from Graceland, a long way from Graceland
You’re a long way from Graceland
