August 16, 1977 + 35 years

"I was thinking that night about Elvis

Day that he died, day that he died
Just a country boy that combed his hair
Put on a shirt his mother made and he went on the air
And he shook it like a chorus girl
He shook it like a Harlem queen
He shook it like a midnight rebel, baby
Like he never seen"
 --Gillian Welch, "Elvis Presley Blues"
