THIS BOY FROM TUPELO
From Mississippi, born quite some time ago,
The name of Elvis would be forever known.
Gospel music he could sing very well,
Growing up In a town where the poor would dwell.
He loved his mother, to her a song he would sing,
Noticed by a man named Sam, to a boy, fame this would bring.
Moving on to Memphis, a place In Tennessee,
A mansion known as Graceland, now the home for he.
Always near by, on him an eye they keep,
Called the Memphis Maphia Is whom they would be.
A show he puts’ on In such places well known,
All over the world his legend has grown.
When his time came, the Lord made his visit,
Away Elvis went with him, to the music we still listen.
