Em                   F           Em              F
 I was sitting there watching TV, Wendy came and sat on my knee
Dm                  C        Dm                      C
 She put her finger in my ear but I pulled it out so I could hear
Em                       F               Am                              G
 What the newsman on the television said, he said, "The king of rock and roll was dead"
Dm                 C                Em                        F
 And in the spooky television light, she said, "Don't ever forget this night"

G                             Em         F                G      Gsus4
I was fucking Wendy under the stars, the night that Elvis died
G                             Em         F                G      Gsus4   G   Gsus4
I was fucking Wendy under the stars, the night that Elvis died

Em                    F             Em                    F
 As walked across the dew-wet field, I never ever thought she would yield
Dm                  C            Dm                    C
 To my young body's aching desire for an older woman's well-banked fire
Em                F        Am                          G
 By the left hand I was led to the place that we would make our bed
Dm                    C              Em                        F
 And embracing in the blue moonlight, she said, "Don't ever forget this night"

G                             Em         F                G      Gsus4
I was fucking Wendy under the stars, the night that Elvis died
G                             Em         F                G      Gsus4   G   Gsus4
I was fucking Wendy under the stars, the night that Elvis died

Em           F        Em                     F
 She was 31, I was 17, I found out then what passion could mean
Dm                           C               Dm                       C
 I thought I loved her but I didn't know how, I don't love her when I see her now
Em                  F              Am                         G
 With the tape deck turned up loud, she made a young man feel strong and proud
Dm                          C             Em                        F
 And in the coolness of the morning light, she said, "Don't ever forget this night"

G                             Em         F                G      Gsus4
I was fucking Wendy under the stars, the night that Elvis died
G                             Em         F                G
I was fucking Wendy under the stars, the night that Elvis died
    F                G
The night that Elvis died
    F                G
The night that Elvis died
