The Promised Land recorded by Elvis Presley written by Chuck Berry C
I left my home in Norfolk Virginia F California on my mind
I straddled that Greyhound and
C Rode him into Raleigh and on across Caroline We had motor trouble it turned into a struggle
F Half way across Alabam
And that 'Hound broke down and left us all stranded
C In downtown Birmingham Right away I bought me a through train ticket
F Riding across Mississippi clean
And I was on that midnight flyer out of Birmingham
C Smoking into New Orleans Somebody help me get out of Louisiana
F Just help me get to Houston town
There are people there who care a little about me
C And they won't let a poor boy down Sure as you're born they bought me a silk suit
F They put luggage in my hands
And I woke up high over Albuquerque
C On a jet to the promised land We stopped at Charlotte we by passed Rock Hill
F We never was a minute late
We was ninety miles out of Atlanta by sundown
C Rolling out of Georgia state Working on a T-bone steak
F I had a party flying over to the golden state
When the pilot told us that in thirteen minutes
C He would get us to the terminal gate Swing Low Chariot come down easy
F Taxi to the terminal door G7
Cut your engines and cool you wings
C And let me make it to the telephone Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia F Tidewater 4-10-0-9
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land
C Calling and the boy's on the line
