Song Description

A song about Graceland - home of Elvis Presley. Someone wants to move in!

Story Behind the Song

Johnny and Brian went to Memphis to see where the king lived. They were inspired by the peanut butter and pickle sandwich - and a few beers to write this song about Elis's castle.

Lyrics

MOVIN INTO GRACELAND
Words and Music by Johnny Rodgers and Brian Wilson


I went to Graceland with my new fling
And though I got there much too late to meet the King,
It felt like home sweet home to me
With golden records just as far as I could see.
Whoa-oh-oh, I went to Graceland.

That tiny shack deep in Tupelo
Right where that rock-n-royalty was meant to grow.
He bought his mama a brand new car
Then he went ridin' on the wings of his guitar.
Whoa-oh-oh, he's off to Graceland.

Right here in Graceland, my toes have turned to roots
Right here in Graceland, so I'm kickin' off my boots
Right here in Graceland, makes me wonder where I've been:
Grab my bags, I'm Movin' into Graceland .
Right here in Graceland ..

I'll make my bed in the Jungle Room,
Amid the monkeys and mahoganistic gloom.
I'll show the world my generosity
When I invite 'em in to jam along with me.
Whoa-oh-oh, ya'il comin' to Graceland.



Right here in Graceland, my toes have turned to roots
Right here in Graceland, so I'm kickin' off my boots
Right here in Graceland, if you're wonderin' where I've been,
Grabbed my bags and moved on into Graceland...

Right here in Graceland, my toes have turned to roots
Right here in Graceland, so I'm kickin' off these boots
Right here in Graceland, when my spirit is set free,
Bring me home and bury me in Graceland ...
Right here in Graceland
