Elvis Presley - An American Trilogy


The Boy

The day braces
The Boy weeps
All that was
All that left
The time was
The time past
The Boy knew
The Man too
He Saved the Boy
The Man cried too
The day so still

The Man

Two days left
Graceland holds
The boy
The man destroyed
The gates held pain
A prisoner's reign
A mother's boy
The man destroyed
Graceland holds
All the times
The man destroyed

Mississippi Son Rising

Tennessee Boy
The Man is silent
Sun rises
The gate opens
The Boy lives
Mother waits
The Man is silent
Sun fails
The gate closes
The Boy Returns
The Man is silent
