I'm gonna tell you a little story, so's you'll understand what I'm talking 'bout...

Down there we have a plant that grows out in the woods and the fields, and it looks somethin' like a turnip green.

Ev'rybody calls it Polk Salad.

Now that's Polk! Salad!!

Lord have mercy.

Used to know a girl that lived down there and
she'd go out in the evenin's & pick her a mess of it...

Carry it home and cook it for supper, 'cause...

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine

Quiet thought come floating down
And settle softly to the ground
Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories,
Sweet memories

Of holding hands and red bouquets
And twilight trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine,
Memories, memories, sweet memories

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...

Well, I quit my job down at the car wash,
Left my mama a goodbye note,
By sundown I'd left Kingston,
With my guitar under my coat,
I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis,
Got a room at the YMCA,
For the next three weeks I went huntin' them nights,
Just lookin' for a place to play,
Well, I thought my pickin' would set 'em on fire,
But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man

Well, I nearly 'bout starved to death down in Memphis,
I run outta money and luck,
So I bought me a ride down to Macon, Georgia,
On a overloaded poultry truck,
I thumbed on down to Panama City,
Started pickin' out some o' them all night bars,...

Just last night I finished reading "Elvis: A Lonely Life" by Ray Connolly. I have been a fan of Elvis since I was a little girl, and I am now in my early fifties. I feel compelled to say that I have never felt that I have known Elvis better, but also, though I have almost always considered him as a tragic figure, never more so than now. From his meteoric rise, to his tragic end, there was no way anyone could have known all the things that would occur, and how much he would suffer from both the highs and lows in his life. Mr. Connolly once even spoke to Elvis on the phone, and I wish I knew...

Hey baby, I ain't askin' much of you
No no no no no no no no baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do

Don't be a stingy little mama
You're 'bout to starve me half to death
Well you can spare a kiss or two and
Still have plenty left, no no no
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do

You're just a natural born beehive
Filled with honey to the top
Well I ain't greedy baby
All I want is all you got, no no no
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do

I got wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot 'round my wrist
You know I'd have all the things these lucky charms could bring
If you'd give me just one sweet kiss, no no no no no no no
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do

We're caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Why can't you see
What you're doing to me
When you don't believe a word I say

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

So, if an old friend I know
Drops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes

Here we go again
Asking where I've been
You can't see these tears are real
I'm crying (these crying)

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

Oh, let our love survive
Or dry the tears from...

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can't help falling in love with you

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
it's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand
the child needs a helping hand
or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
are we too blind to see,
do we simply turn our heads
and look the other way

Well the world turns
and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
so he starts to roam the streets at night
and he learns...

78 years ago was born the son of Gladys and Vernon Presley, the survivor twin Elvis, in East Tupelo, Mississippi. Amid the fragile economy of the city, the family was forced to move to Memphis, where Elvis, now a teenager, honed his musical gift through his church and some of his relatives. After the departure of Elvis to Sun Records to record songs that were supposed to be a gift for his mother, Sam Philips, label owner, got in touch with the future King of Rock n' Roll and began promoting him on radio and TV programs.
Ready, a businessman named Colonel Tom Parker saw one of the performances...

You saw me crying in the chapel
The tears I shed were tears of joy
I know the meaning of contentment
Now I am happy with the Lord

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where humble people go to pray
I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger
As I live from day to day

I've searched and I've searched
But I couldn't find
No way on earth
To gain peace of mind

Now I'm happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
We gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the Lord

Every sinner looks for something
That will put his heart at ease
There is only one true answer
He must get down on his knees

Meet your neighbor in the chapel
Join with him in tears of joy
You'll know the meaning of contentment
Then you'll be happy with the Lord

You'll search and you'll search
But you'll never find
No way on earth
To gain peace of mind

Take your troubles to the chapel
Get down on your knees and pray
Your burdens will be lighter
And you'll surely find the way

I give,
Give you my heart,
Today, tomorrow and forever,
You'll always be my love,
I vow we'll never part,
Today, tomorrow and forever,
Long as there's stars above
The cares of life will fade away,
As long as we're together.
So stay,
Stay in my arms
Today, tomorrow and forever,
You'll always be my love
I give,
Give you my heart,
Today, tomorrow and forever,
You'll always be my love
The cares of life will fade away,
As long as we're together.
So stay,
Stay in my arms
Today, tomorrow and forever,
You'll always be my love,
(Today, tomorrow and forever,)
You'll always be my love

It hurts me to see him treat you the way he does
It hurts me to see sit and cry
When I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see those tears in your eyes

The whole town is talking, they're callin' you a fool
For listening to his same old lies
And when I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see the way he makes you cry

You love him too much, you're too blind to see
He's only playing a game
But he's never loved you
He never will
And darling, don't you know he will never change

Oh, I know he never will set you free
Because he's just that kind of guy
But if you ever tell him you're through
I'll be waiting for you
Waiting to hold you so tight
Waiting to kiss you goodnight
Yes, darling, if I had someone like you

Well a hard headed woman,
A soft hearted man
Been the cause of trouble
Ever since the world began
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
A hard headed woman been
A thorn in the side of man

Now Adam told to Eve,
"listen here to me,
Don't you let me catch you
Messin' round that apple tree."
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
A hard headed woman been
A thorn in the side of man

Now Samson told Delilah
Loud and clear,
"keep your cotton pickin' fingers
Out my curly hair."
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
A hard headed woman been
A thorn in the side of man

I heard about a king
Who was doin' swell
Till he started playing
With that evil Jezebel
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
A hard headed woman been a thorn in the side of man.

I got a woman,
A head like a rock
If she ever went away
I'd cry around the clock
Oh yeah, ever since the world began
A hard headed woman been
A thorn in the side of man

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes,
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

A well I bless my soul
What's wrong with me?
I'm itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say I'm actin' wild as a bug
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Oh, yeah, yeah

My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you thank when you have such luck?
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Oh, yeah, yeah

Please don't ask me what's on my mind
I'm a little mixed up, but I'm feelin' fine
When I'm near that girl that I love best
My heart beats so it scares me to death!

She touched my hand what a chill I got
Her lips are like a vulcano that's hot
I'm proud to say she's my buttercup
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Oh, yeah, yeah

My tongue get tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
There's only one cure for this body of mine
That's to have the girl that I love so fine!
Elvis Aaron Presley was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was stillborn, leaving Elvis to grow up as an only child. He and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee, in 1948, and Elvis graduated from Humes High School there in 1953.

Elvis’ musical influences were the pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on historic Beale Street as a Memphis teenager.

In 1954, Elvis began his...

When no one else can understand me
When everything I do is wrong
You give me hope and consolation
You give me strength to carry on
And you´re always there to lend a hand
In everthing I do
That's the wonder, the wonder of you

And when you smile the world is brighter
You touch my hand and I am a king
Your kiss to me is worth a fortune
Your love for me is everything
I guess, I'll never know the reason why
You love me as you do
that's the wonder, the wonder of you

I guess I'll never know the reason why
You love me as you do
That's the wonder, The Wonder of you
