Once long ago, all the faithful filled ashore
Down in Elvis Presley Blvd. on Memphis Radio
Well the hopeless held the visual and the nameless played the charts
Well the looseness lost their sorrow & the lonely knit their hearts

Step on these shoes then I'll see you in hell, Love me so tender I cried
Said me halloo in the Heartbreak Hotel, so hello, I could die

I took a ride with my baby by my side
And the Elvis Presley Blvd. where all the faithful cried
And that's all that's I would mention and I knew that I was lost
They was selling plastic souvenirs or velvets on the cross

Step on these shoes and I'll see you in hell, Love me so tender I cried
Said me halloo in the Heartbreak Hotel, so hello, I could die

Drive down that road tonight, everyone is gone
Nobody's home but the light's always dark

Man I was beat, I was driven by the heat
Down to Elvis Presley Blvd. in a one-way dead end street
And I smashed my car to pieces and I said goodbye to youth
I had all the ugly rumors and I could not face the truth

Said me halloo in the Heartbreak Hotel, so hello, I could die

Drive down that road tonight, everyone is gone
Nobody's home but the light's always dark
