  • Well I lived next door to royalty
    A skinny little kid just like me
    We'd go hunt down the honeybees
    Back in the days gone by
    His daddy had a car that would go sometimes
    That'd engine roar, he'd let us ride
    Barbed wire fences flying far behind
    Back in the days gone by

    Tupelo rest my soul
    Take me to the river
    I've been delivered
    Into the hands that reach to hold
    Tupelo rock n roll
    Sing it in the kitchen
    And pass the ammunition
    Turn all your tears of blue to gold

    I was a Pepsi Cola factory man
    Made my living with my own two hands
    That skinny kid moved up to graceland
    Back in the days gone by
    We slept beneath our hopes and wishes
    Forty two years, me and the missus
    My memories are my greatest riches
    From back in the days gone by

    Tupelo rest my soul
    Take me to the river
    I've been delivered
    Into the hands that reach to hold
    Tupelo rock n roll
    Sing it in the kitchen
    And pass the ammunition
    Turn all your tears of blue to gold

    Time moves on like a melody
    And I can hear those memories sing
    Time moves on like a melody
    And I can hear those memories sing
    Time moves on like a melody
    And I can hear those memories sing
    Time moves on like a melody
    And I can hear those memories sing

    Tupelo rest my soul
    Take me to the river
    I've been delivered
    Into the hands that reach to hold
    Tupelo rock n roll
    Sing it in the kitchen
    And pass the ammunition
    Turn all your tears of blue to gold
    Turn all your tears of blue to gold
    Turn all your tears of blue to gold Publisher: BMG Rights Management
