Elvis In Vegas

I didn't take a suitcase
I had to travel light
I climbed out of my bedroom window
It was just about quarter past midnight

Out on the highway
I hitched a ride, I was heading west
I had to listen to some trucker
Tell me all about the meaning of life

Got a ride just outside of Memphis
I was wild out on the road
I saw shanties and shacks, and burned-out Cadillacs
And faces that glittered like gold

Shoulda seen it comin'
Oh, shoulda seen the signs
I saw seven horses runnin'
I had a front-row seat at the end of time

I was just fifteen and the world was mine
As I watched my dreams come to life on that night

I saw Elvis in Vegas
I saw Elvis in Vegas

Now since that long lost summer
I never looked back
Now the lines on my face
Are looking more like cracks

And when the dreams all crumble
It's time to face the facts
I don't care about tomorrow
Oh, there's no looking back

I shoulda seen it comin'
Oh, I shoulda seen the signs
I saw seven horses runnin'
I had a front-row seat at the end of time

I was just fifteen and the world was mine
As I watched my dreams come to life on that night
I was standing tall, thought I would never die
And I watched it all in the white spot light

I saw Elvis in Vegas
I saw Elvis in Vegas

I saw Elvis in Vegas
I saw Elvis in Vegas

I shoulda seen it comin'
Oh, I shoulda seen the signs
I saw seven horses runnin'
I had a front-row seats at the end of time

When the lights went out
I heard the young girls scream
The sound of my heartbeat Would make the thunder pride

Well, I was just fifteen and the world was mine
And I watched my dreams come to life on that night
Well, I was standin' tall, thought I would never die
And I watched it all in the white spot light

I saw Elvis in Vegas
I saw Elvis in Vegas
I saw Elvis in Vegas
I saw Elvis in Vegas
I saw Elvis in Vegas
Oh I saw Elvis in Vegas
