Rickie Lee Jones – Elvis Cadillac lyrics

Wrote a letter to my father
I thought I'd tell him where I am
I knew that he was hoping
I'd come home again

I'm standing in the doorway
But I'm happy living here
Everybody always tries so hard
To sing a song no one can hear
And yes, my heart was broken
Yeah but I made it through the night
Little Janis Joplin she's got a job on the corner bar
So I guess where doing alright

I got used to all that swimming
I said come on in the water's fine
And I know you don't remember me
But I've seen you, seen you many times

Yes my heart was opened
No, no I don't look back
Because I'm riding around heaven
In Elvis Cadillac
Riding around in heaven
In Elvis Cadillac

Yes my heart was opened
And no, I never look back
Hey, I'm riding around heaven
In my Elvis cadillac
Riding around in heaven
In Elvis Cadillac
In Elvis Cadillac
In Elvis Cadillac
