Milky White Way L2WW 0373

Studio Session for RCA, October 30, 1960

Lyrics:

(Arranged and adapted by Elvis Presley)

Yes Iím gonna walk on the milky white way
Oh Lord some of these days
I'm gonna walk that milky white way
Some of these days well well well well
I'm gonna walk up and take my stand
Gonna join that Christian band
I'm gonna walk on that milky white way
Oh Lord, some of these days

I'm gonna tell my mother howdy, howdy,
Howdy when I get home
Yes, Iím gonna tell my mother howdy,
When I get home well well well well
I'm gonna shake my mother's hand
I will shake her hands that day
That's when we walk on the milky white way
On some of these days

I'm gonna meet god the father and god the son
Yes, Iím gonna meet god the father and god the son
Well well well well
I'm gonna sit down and tell Him my troubles
About the world that I just came from
That's when we walk on the milky white way
Oh Lord, on some of these days

addition:
the original version was recorded in 1947 by The Trumpeteers; however it seems that there are older versions by other groups/artists but I have not located that.

Bruce Springsteen
He was as big as the whole country itself, as big as the whole dream. He just embodied the essence of it and he was in mortal combat with the thing. Nothing will ever take the place of that guy.
