Merle Haggard - From Graceland to the Promised Land Lyrics

 

Ladies and gentlemen, my farewell to Elvis.

 

From the sun years of the fifties and the birth of rock and roll

Millions screamed to see him do his thing

Elvis touched the life of every ear that heard him

And they couldn't help but listen when he sang.

 

It's a long way from Memphis to that mansion in the sky

But he kept his faith in Jesus all along

It's a long way from Graceland across Jordan to the Promised Land

But Jesus finally came to lead him home.

 

From the days of Love Me Tender to his mama's last farewell

Some say he knew how long he had to stay

His life was two days longer than the one who gave him life

And he almost knew the number of the days.

 

It's a long way from Memphis to that mansion in the sky

But he kept his faith in Jesus all along

It's a long way from Graceland across Jordan to the Promised Land

But Jesus finally came to lead him home.

 

It's a long way from Memphis to that mansion in the sky

But he kept his faith in Jesus all along

It's a long way from Graceland across Jordan to the Promised Land

But he kept his favorite Jesus all along...
