Heading to the Promised Land

I left my home in Norfolk Virginia
California on my mind
I straddled that Greyhound
And rode into Raleigh
And on across Caroline

Coincidentally, Elvis’s recording of “Promised Land” was released 38 years ago this very day.    Written by Chuck Berry in 1964, it describes “the poor boy’s” journey from Virginia to California.

This morning in the dark of 6:00 AM, Wayne Moore pulled Elvis out of the Waddell’s driveway and began the journey from Virginia to California.  He plans to arrive by Sunday, the 30th.
