Pretend I'm Elvis

Intro: F     C      G  F   C      C

         C
You're a little long in the tooth, babe
        F                   C
Me, I'm puffy and under the weather
        C         Em         Am
But the drunker I get,  that band gets tight,
    D7                    G
And honey, you're lookin' better
   C
So here's to dim lights in dingy bars,
       F                    F
To the alcohol haze and the smoke
        C         Em  Am
And the chance to reinvent ourselves
    F           G      C
Hey baby, let's go for broke

       F        C         G        C
And pretend I'm Elvis for just one night
       F            C      D              G
I will call you priscilla,    if that's alright
             F          C               Em   Am
Hey don't we look sorta like em' in the neon light?
         D7              Dm          G    F   C
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin' for just one night
F     C    G  F  C    C

         C
Now it's one a.m and we follow the band
       F               C
Down a dead and lonely street
         C     Em       Am
Here's a song about our destiny,
D7                     G
  How we were meant to meet
   C                  C7
So drink up honey and wrap me in
F                       F
Good looks, fortune and fame
        C       Em           Am
I don't need to know who you really are
          F       G       C
You don't need to know my name

        F        C         G        C
Just pretend I'm Elvis for just one night
       F            C      D              G
I will call you priscilla,    if that's alright
             F          C               Em   Am
Hey don't we look sorta like em' in the neon light?
         D7              Dm          G    F   C
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin' for just one night

           Am                                        C
Three more drinks and that cab outside will become a limo
        Am                                        Em
You and me we gotta hang on tight to this fragile spell
    Dm                                      Am
But girl, it ain't easy and I get queasy as hell
D
Lookin' at a map where every road leads back
      G
To my room at the Heartbreak Hotel

       C
We all need God's redemption, honey
        F              C
Tonight Graceland is a bar 
    C       Em      Am            D7                G
And even if I can't sing too good,   or play the guitar
        C                C7
I think I could love you tender,
F
Treat you like a queen,
       C      Em     Am
We can work a little magic
           F      G       C
If you'll imagine I'm the King

        F        C         G        C
Just pretend I'm Elvis for just one night
       F            C      D              G
I will call you priscilla,    if that's alright
             F          C               Em   Am
Hey don't we look sorta like em' in the neon light?
         D7              Dm          G    F   C
Let's pretend I'm Elvis, darlin' for just one night
             D7              Dm          G    F   C
Would you pretend I'm Elvis, darlin' for just one night
