From Galway To Graceland Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh she dressed in the dark
And she whispered amen
She was pretty in pink
Like a young girl again
Verse 2
Twenty years married
And she never thought twice
She sneaked out the door
And walked into the night
Verse 3
And silver wings carried her
Over the sea
From the west coast of Ireland
To West Tennessee
Verse 4
To be with her sweetheart,
Oh she left everything
From Galway to Graceland to be with the king
Verse 5
She was humming Suspicion,
That's the song she liked best
She had Elvis I Love You
Tattooed on her breast
Verse 6
When they landed in Memphis,
Well, her heart beat so fast
She'd dreamed for so long,
Now she'd see him at last
Verse 7
She was down by his graveside
Day after day
Come closing time they
Would pull her away
Verse 8
Ah to be with her sweetheart,
Oh she'd left everything
From Galway to Graceland to be with the king
Verse 9
Ah, they came in their thousands
From the whole human race
To pay their respects
At his last resting place
Verse 10
But blindly she knelt there
And she told him her dreams
And she thought that he answered
Or that's how it seems
Verse 11
Then they dragged her away
It was handcuffs this time
She said "my good man are you out of your mind?"
Don't you know that we're married?
Verse 12
See, I'm wearing his ring.
From Galway to Graceland to be with the king.
I come From Galway to Graceland to be with the king.
