The Promised Land
recorded by Elvis Presley
written by Chuck Berry

C chordC
I left my home in Norfolk Virginia
F chordF
California on my mind
G7 chordG7
I straddled that Greyhound and
C chordC
Rode him into Raleigh and on across Caroline


We had motor trouble it turned into a struggle
F chordF
Half way across Alabam
G7 chordG7
And that 'Hound broke down and left us all stranded
C chordC
In downtown Birmingham


Right away I bought me a through train ticket
F chordF
Riding across Mississippi clean
G7 chordG7
And I was on that midnight flyer out of Birmingham
C chordC
Smoking into New Orleans


Somebody help me get out of Louisiana
F chordF
Just help me get to Houston town
G7 chordG7
There are people there who care a little about me
C chordC
And they won't let a poor boy down


Sure as you're born they bought me a silk suit
F chordF
They put luggage in my hands
G7 chordG7
And I woke up high over Albuquerque
C chordC
On a jet to the promised land


We stopped at Charlotte we by passed Rock Hill
F chordF
We never was a minute late
G7 chordG7
We was ninety miles out of Atlanta by sundown
C chordC
Rolling out of Georgia state


Working on a T-bone steak
F chordF
I had a party flying over to the golden state
G7 chordG7
When the pilot told us that in thirteen minutes
C chordC
He would get us to the terminal gate


Swing Low Chariot come down easy
F chordF
Taxi to the terminal door
G7 chordG7
Cut your engines and cool you wings
C chordC
And let me make it to the telephone


Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia
F chordF
Tidewater -1 - -9
G7 chordG7
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land
C chordC
Calling and the boy's on the line
