Lyrics

We turned Jesus into Elvis who turned records into bread
We work the world for now that our king is dead
From the Vatican to Graceland we’re playing in one chord
And singing gospel numbers in the name of lord
We all loved the King yet we crucified him too
So love me tender baby I’m only passing through

Well I pulled into this town a few hours ago
I drank a Long Tall Sally and a King Creole
My painted lady waitress was hotter than the sun
If I were made in Memphis boys she could’ve been the one
She said, now that you’re done boy what you wanna do
I’m a long gone daddy baby I’m only passing through

She said it’s alright do what you gotta do
It’s alright do what you gotta do
She said it’s alright do what you gotta do
I’ve come to realize we’re all just passing through

She said I’m waitin for the answers till the questions go away
I keep talking to myself till I have nothing left to say
There’s trouble in the alley they’re at it every night
They’re digging up my past and burying the light
I’m not looking for a savior just something that feels true
A tiny piece of heaven while I’m only passing through

I said they sacrificed my love three hours down the road
They caught a couple sparks then they left me in the cold
I’ve been hooked on inspiration for so long it’s been abused
I could never be you savior baby I hardly own my truth
And these howling winds of Handy got me feeling way too blue
This living clean is killing me I’m only passing through

She said it’s alright do what you gotta do
It’s alright do what you gotta do
She said It’s alright do what you gotta do
It’ a blink of an eye boy we’re all just passin through

We turned Jesus into Elvis who turned records into bread
We work the world for profits now that our king is dead
From the Vatican to Graceland we’re playing in one chord
And singing gospel numbers in the name of lord
We all loved the King yet we crucified him too
So love me tender baby I’m only passing through
