Elvis Presley Blvd.
From the album:
My Lives

Once long ago all the faithful held a show
Down at Elvis Presley Blvd. on Memphis radio
Where the hopeless held a vigil and the nameless made the charts
Where the losers lost their sorrow and the lonely left their hearts

Step on these shoes and I’ll see you in hell
Love me so tender, I cried
Save me a room at the Heartbreak Hotel
I’m so alone I could die

I took a ride with my baby by my side
Down to Elvis Presley Blvd. where all the faithful cried
And I saw that silent mansion and I knew that I was lost
They were selling plastic souvenirs of Elvis on the cross

Step on these shoes and I’ll see you in hell
Love me so tender, I cried
Save me a room at the heartbreak Hotel
I’m so alone I could die

Drive down that road tonight
Everyone has gone
Nobody’s home but the light’s
Always on

Man I was beat I was driven by the heat
Down to Elvis Presley Blvd., a one-way dead-end street
And I smashed my car to pieces and I said goodbye to youth
I heard all the ugly rumors but I could not face the truth

Save me a room at the Heartbreak Hotel
I’m so alone I could die

Drive down that road tonight
Everyone has gone
Nobody’s home but the light’s
Always on
