Elvis Presley Blvd.

Billy Joel

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

Step on these shoes then I'll see you in hell, 
€œLove me so tender€ I cried
Save me a room in the €œHeartbreak Hotel€,
I'm so alone, I could die

I took a ride with my baby by my side
And the 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 then I'll see you in hell, 
€œLove me so tender€ I cried
Save me a room in the €œHeartbreak Hotel€,
I'm so alone, I could die

Drive down that road tonight, everyone is 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. in a one-way dead end street
And I smashed my car to pieces and I said goodbye to youth
I had all the ugly rumors and I could not face the truth

Save me a room in the €œHeartbreak Hotel€,
I'm so alone, I could die

Drive down that road tonight, everyone is gone
Nobody's home but the light's always on
