Lyrics

THE WINTER AFTER ELVIS DIED

It was the winter after Elvis died
I caught pneumonia from a cold harsh wind outside
The nurses overdosed me on codeine
That’s when I saw things I’d never seen
High flying on a magical ride
I heard the beach boys playing from the walls inside

That’s how it was back in 77
The winter after Elvis died and now he’s in heaven
The winter of all my discontent
The winter I lost all my confidence

My parents said hey girl you almost died
I had a doctor, I had Jesus on my side
They both said girl you’re gonna be alright
Floating on down my fever broke that night

That’s how it was back in 77
The winter after Elvis died and now he’s in heaven
The winter of all my discontent
The winter I lost all my innocence

Long cold winter Long cold winter

The winter I was lost without a farmhouse near
On the coldest evening of the year
I saw the dark woods fill up with snow
Searched for my house blazed in Yuletide glow
