The Chosen Ones - Jo Camilleri, Nick Smith

    I heard how all the lights went down in Memphis
    on the death-night anniversary of the King
    the Pretender's talkin' dirty in the palace
    but it doesn't have that old familiar ring
    I see there's been some changes in the valley
    all the renegades have finally settled down
    now they worship in the temples of their rivals
    and desecrate the holy heart of town
    can't you hear all those sweet voices signin'
    takin' care of the chosen ones
    can't you hear all those mission bells ringin'
    say a prayer for the chosen ones
    I read they're pourin' oil on troubled waters
    yet they cast a giant shadow on the land
    let's spend another night across the border
    and bury all our secrets in the sand
    they claim there is a message in the bible
    swear there is no master and his slave
    but the future's lookin' grim for the lonesome cowboy
    when the hand that rocks the cradle digs the grave
