She pulled all her money from the southern trust
And put her little boy on a greyhound bus
Leaving Memphis with a guitar in his hands
For a one way ticket to the promised land
Hey there girlie with the Red dress on
There's a party tonight down in Memphis town
I'm going down if you need a ride
The man on the radio says "Elvis Presley's died".

We pulled into Memphis, the sky was hard and black
And up over the ridge came a white Cadillac
They took all his money and they laid him in the back
A woman cried "oh, he's gone, he's gone"
They found him slumped up against the drain
With a whole lot of trouble running through his veins
Bye, Bye Johnny
Johnny Bye, Bye
You didn't have to die, you didn't have to die

Hey you there with the flannel shirt on
The years go by but the story stays the same
I'm going out west if you need a ride
The voice on the radio says "Kurt Cobain's died"
The voice on the radio says "Bye Johnny Bye"
The voice on the radio says "he was here and gone"
The voice on the radio says "Bye, Bye again, it looks like
We got another dead rock star"
