Intro

E
Well I started out with nothin' I got almost nothin' left.

It seems if you don't ask for much.  That's exactly what you'll get.
       A
Well I got my expectations and there not filled with greed.
     E                                          A 
I've done my calculations...here's exactly what I need.

             A       B           E         A    B       E       
Just give me half of what killed Elvis and I'll be satisfied.
A              E                    F#                 B
Lisa Marie and Priscilla and me and driving around all night.
A
I don't want no hard stuff for I am not insane.
        E                             B       A       E            A
Give me half of what killed Elvis and you can call me King.

    E                   
Now Elvis blew up three TV's 'cause he hated Bob Goulet

I swear that one is all I'd need to do in Billy Ray.
    A
And I don't want no Grace Land to get buried out in back
      E                                    B       A       E  
But I sure could use a shiny suit 'cause I started getting fat.

             A       B           E         A    B       E       
Just give me half of what killed Elvis and I'll be satisfied.
A              E                    F#                 B
Lisa Marie and Priscilla and me and driving around all night.
A
I don't want no hard stuff for I am not insane.
        E                             B       A       E            A
Give me half of what killed Elvis and you can call me King.

D                                B        E 
Folks are disillusioned with the American Dream

'Cause what it did to Elvis and Marilyn and James Dean.
    A 
But they were just like comets and they burned up oh so bright
    E                                    B       A     E     
But me I'm just an old blue star growing fainter every night...

             A       B           E         A    B       E
Just give me half of what killed Elvis and I'll be satisfied.
A              E                    F#                 B
Lisa Marie and the TCB and drive around Memphis all night.
A
And I don't want no Colonel and no Red West by my side.
E                             B       A       E            A
Give me half of what killed Elvis and I'll be satisfied.
