Roy Reynolds – It Was Him lyrics

Mississippi in ’35
Two comin but only one arrived.
It Was Him.

Humes High School ’53,
Sun Records was lookin’ for a dream.
It Was Him

From that Tupelo shack to Memphis,
From Hollywood to Vegas,
It Was Him, It Was Him.

’57 we crowned him best,
’58 laid his mamma to rest.
It Was Him.

March of ’60 shed those GI boots
Nine more years he smiled for Hollywood
It Was Him.It Was Him

It Was Him that showed’em that we could Rock and Roll
Still love our God and our Mamma so,
Help a brother along the way,
Fall down on our knees and pray.
It Was Him, It Was Him

’69 back on the road,
‘Till the Father called the boy back home,
It Was Him.

’77 Memphis Tennessee
Though we wept we just couldn’t believe
It Was Him, It Was Him, It Was Him,

From that Tupelo Shack to Graceland,
From Graceland to The Promised Land
It Was Him, It Was Him, It Was Him,

Mississippi in ’35, It Was Him
Two comin only one arrived, It Was Him
Though we wept we just couldn’t believe, It Was Him
It Was Him, It Was Him.

Mississippi in ’35
Two comin but only one arrived….
It Was Him.
