Graceland, the song

Graceland:



by Paul Simon, posted in celebration of his 74th birthday tomorrow.

lyrics excerpt:
The Mississippi Delta was shining
Like a national guitar.
I am following the river
Down the highway
Through the cradle of the Civil War.
I'm going to Graceland, Graceland
In Memphis, Tennessee.
I'm going to Graceland.

    1. I remember when this one came out. I hadn't realized that Graceland was really any big deal except to Elvis fan tourists.
