lyrics

Three More Minutes with Elvis
In the key of F

Three more minutes with Elvis
That’s all that we need
Handed down though the seasons
Like an heirloom seed
I don’t think I’m asking for a miracle
And I hope you don’t take this as greed
Three more minutes with Elvis
Ain’t that just what we need?

‘Cause there’s bad ink in the money
Like a child that was born in the war
A girl who never had sugar
A nation grown dark at the core
Don’t I give her all my money
Ain’t my love as true as before?
Three more minutes…that’s all I’m asking
I won’t ask for no more

Three more minutes with Elvis
Ain’t that the least you can do?
Just give me one decent sequence
One more song that rings true
Three more minutes with Elvis Presley
Ain’t that the least you can do?

Take all my records down to the Salvation Army
Let the radio stations all burn
Maybe I’m stupid…it’s the same old question
How come I never learn?
It seems like we must be owed something
And I don’t know where else to turn
I’m through with asking for favors
I think this is something we’ve earned

Three more minutes with Elvis
Ain’t that the least you can do?
Just give me one decent sequence
One more song that rings true
Three more minutes with Elvis Presley
Ain’t that the least you can do?
