Elvis Presley

 

This is the beginning of Elvis' rock & roll. Elvis Presley, guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black first mixed up R&B and C&W into an explosion that created the music we hear now. It's elementary, sensitive Rock & roll and Elvis' ballad style that would soon be influential on all pop musicians.

"I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine" 
 
Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine. 
I get my lovin' in the evening time 
When I'm with my baby. 
 
Well, it ain't no fun with the sun around. 
I get going when the sun goes down 
And I'm with my baby. 
 
Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss 
and kiss and kiss, 
And we're gonna kiss some more. 
Who cares how many times we kiss, 
'Cause at a time like this, who keeps score? 
 
Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine 
I get my loving in the evening time 
When I meet my baby. 
 
And it don't matter if it's sleet or snow, 
The drive-in's cozy when the lights are low 
And I'm with my baby. 
 
Makes no difference if the rain comes down 
I don't notice when she's around. 
Oh boy, what a baby. 
 
Well, that's when we're gonna kiss and kiss 
and kiss and kiss 
and 
We're gonna kiss some more. 
Well, one kiss from my baby doll 
Makes me hot... 
More more more more.

"Milkcow Blues Boogie" 
 
Well, I woke up this morning, 
And I looked out the door. 
I can tell that old milk cow 
By the way she lowed. 
 
Hold it fellows, that don't move me. 
Let's get real, real gone for a change. 
 
Well, I woke up this morning 
And I looked out the door 
I can tell that that old milk cow 
I can tell the way she lowed. 
 
Well, if you've seen my milk cow, 
Please ride her on home. 
I ain't had no milk or butter 
Since that cow's been gone. 
 
Well, I tried to treat you right, 
Day by day. 
Get out your little prayer book 
Get down on your knees and pray. 
For you're gonna need, 
You're gonna need 
your loving daddy's help someday. 
Well, then you're gonna be sorry 
For treating me this way. 
Well, believe me, don't that sun 
look good going down? 
Well, believe me, don't that sun 
look good going down? 
Well, don't that old moon look lonesome 
When your baby's not around. 
 
Well, I tried everything to 
get along with you. 
I'm gonna tell you what I'm going do. 
I'm gonna quit my crying, 
I'm gonna leave you alone. 
If you don't believe I'm leaving, 
you can count the days I'm gone. 
I'm gonna leave. 
You're gonna need your 
loving daddy's help someday. 
 
Well, you're gonna be sorry 
You treated me this way. 
 
 
"You're A Heartbreaker" 
 
You're a heartbreaker, 
You're a love faker, 
A heartbreaker playing with fire. 
You're a tear snatcher, 
You're a quarrel patcher, 
But you can't break my heart anymore, 
For I just found someone else 
who's sure to take your place. 
Someone I can always trust 
and to fill this empty space. 
 
You're a heartbreaker, 
You're a love faker, 
But you can't break my heart anymore. 
 
You're a smooth talker, 
You're a real cool walker, 
But now you have talked out of turn. 
You're a high stepper, 
You're a eye-catcher, 
But you won't catch my glances anymore. 
For I just found someone else 
who's sure to take your place, 
Someone I can always trust 
and to fill this empty space. 
 
You're a heartbreaker 
You're a love faker, 
But you can't break my heart anymore.

"I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone" 
 
Well, you're right, I'm left, she's gone. 
You're right, and I'm left all alone. 
Well, you tried to tell me so, 
But how was I to know 
That she was not the one for me? 
 
You told me all along, 
You're right, our love was so wrong. 
But now I changed my mind, 
Because she broke the ties that bind, 
And I know that she never cared for me. 
 
Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do, 
I guess I'm not so smart. 
Oh, you tried to tell me along 
she'd only break my heart. 
I'm left, you're right, she's gone. 
You're right, and I'm left all alone. 
 
Well, she's gone I know not where, 
But now I just don't care. 
For now I'm falling for you. 
 
If you'll forgive me now, 
I'll make it up somehow. 
So happy we will be, 
In a home just for three, 
And I'll soon forget her, 
Now I know. 
 
Well, I thought I knew just what she'd do,

You're right, and I'm left all alone. 
Well, she's gone, I know not where, 
But now I just don't care, 
For now I've fallen for you.

"I Forgot To Remember To Forget" 
(S. Kesler - C. Feathers) 
 
I forgot to remember to forget her, 
I can't seem to get her off my mind. 
I thought I'd never miss her, 
But I found out somehow 
I think about her almost all the time. 
The day she went away 
I made myself a promise 
That I'd soon forget we ever met. 
But something sure is wrong, 
'Cause I'm so blue and lonely. 
I forgot to remember to forget.

I'll never let you go, little darlin'. 
I'm so sorry 'cause I made you cry. 
I'll never let you go, 'cause I love you. 
So please don't ever say good-bye. 
 
The stars would tumble down beside me, 
The moon would hang its head and cry. 
My arms would never hold another baby doll 
If we should ever say good-bye. 
 
Well, I'll never let you go, 
Because I love you, pretty baby. 
I'm so sorry 'cause I made you cry. 
I made you cry. 
Yeah, I'll never let you go, 
'Cause I love you, little baby. 
So please don't ever say good-bye. 
 
 
"Tryin' To Get To You" 
(C. Singleton - R.M. McCoy) 
 
I've been traveling over mountains 
Even through the valleys, too 
I've been traveling night and day 
I've been running all the way 
Baby, trying to get to you. 
 
Ever since I read your letter 
Where you said you loved me true 
I've been traveling night and day 
I've been running all the way 
baby, trying to get to you 
 
When I read your loving letter 
Then my heart began to sing 
There were many miles between us, 
But they didn't mean a thing. 
 
I just had to reach you, baby, 
In spite of all that I've been through. 
I kept traveling night and day, 
I kept running all the way, 
Baby, trying to get to you. 
 
Well if I had to do it over 
That's exactly what I'd do, 
I would travel night and day, 
And I'd still run all the way, 
Baby, trying to get to you. 
 
Well, there's nothing that could hold me 
Or that could keep me away from you 
When your loving letter told me 
That you really loved me true 
 
Lord above me knows I love you 
It was He who brought me through, 
When my way was dark as night, 
He would shine His brightest light, 
When I was trying to get to you.

"Blue Moon" 
(R. Rodgers - L. Hart) 
 
Blue moon, 
You saw me standing alone, 
Without a dream in my heart, 
Without a love of my own.

You knew just what I was there for. 
You heard me saying a pray for 
Someone I really could care for.

That no other girl has got,

"Harbor Lights" 
 
I saw the harbor lights 
 
They only told me we were parting 
Those same old harbor lights 
That once brought you to me. 
 
I watched the harbor lights 
How could I help it? 
Tears were starting. 
Good-bye to golden nights 
Beside the silvery seas. 
 
I long to hold you dear, 
And kiss you just once more. 
But you were on the ship, 
And I was on the shore. 
 
Now I know lonely nights 
For all the while my heart keeps praying 
That someday harbor lights 
Will bring you back to me. 
 
 
"Tomorrow Night" 
 
Tomorrow night 
Will you remember what you said tonight? 
Tomorrow night

That's in my full heart to linger on? 
 
Your lips are so tender, 
Your heart is beating fast 
And you're willing to surrender. 
Tell me, darling, will it last?
