Merle Haggard — From Graceland To The Promised Land lyrics

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 ev'ry 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 fin'ly came to lead him home
