Some y'all never been down South too much...

I'm gonna tell Du 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 steckrübe, rübe 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...

78 years Vor 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 Bewegen 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...

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 Musik of the time, the gospel Musik he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on historic Beale straße as a Memphis teenager.

In 1954, Elvis began his...

I need somebody to lean on
I need somebody to tell my troubles to
No use denying, I'm close to cryin'
But what good, tell me what good would my crying do

I need somebody to help me
Help me forget all those worries on my mind
And when I'm lonely, if someone would only
Want to be sweet and kind

I need somebody, won't that somebody
Please, please listen to my plea
Need that somebody, won't that somebody
Come running to me

I need somebody to lean on
I'm tired of being unhappy and so blue
If she came I would hold her 'cause I need that shoulder
To lean on, yes I really do
I need somebody, and maybe that somebody is you

Well, I quit my job down at the car wash,
Left my mama a goodbye note,
By sundown I'd left Kingston,
With my gitarre under my coat,
I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis,
Got a room at the YMCA,
For the Weiter 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 gitarre 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,...

Well, when my blue moon turns to Gold again
When my regenbogen turns the clouds away
Well, when my blue moon turns to Gold again
You'll be back within my arms to stay

When the memories that linger in my heart
Memories that make my herz grow cold
Well, Du know some Tag they gonna live again sweetheart
And my blue moon again will turn to gold

Well, when my blue moon turns to Gold again
When my regenbogen turns the clouds away
Well, when my blue moon turns to Gold again
You'll be back within my arms to stay

When the memories that linger in my heart
Memories that make my herz grow cold
Well, Du know some Tag they gonna live again sweetheart
And my blue moon again will turn to gold

Well, when my blue moon turns to Gold again
When my regenbogen turns the clouds away
Well, when my blue moon turns to Gold again
You'll be back within my arms to stay

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

Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Then when, when we first begun
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come
Jesus' grace that brought me safe, sicher thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound
To save a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now I'm found
I was blind, but now I see

It hurts me to see him treat Du 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' Du 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 Du cry

Du Liebe 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 Du know he will never change

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

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 Du 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

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 Du understand
the child needs a helping hand
or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at Du 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 straße as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

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

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 Du sagte Du 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 herz 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...

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

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes

I gave a letter to the postman,
he put it his sack.
Bright in early Weiter morning,
he brought my letter back.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.
We had a quarrel, a lover's spat
I write I'm sorry but my letter keeps coming back.

So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D.
Bright in early Weiter morning
it came right back to me.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.

This time I'm gonna take it myself
and put it right in her hand.
And if it comes back the very Weiter day
then I'll understand the Schreiben on it

Return to sender, address unknown.
No such person, no such zone.

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky Mehr blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

We're Lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my herz there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah

A New Tag Autions
He was known Von many names , But the main one was ' KING OF ROCK & ROLL ' .
Yes, he was forever grateful to his fans, he's one of the few stars that never forgot where he came from and who made him who he was , even thougth he went waaay beyond fame and fortune.
He was the inspiration for the Beatles , he surpassed the Sinatra mark 1000 times , it's been almost 40 years since his passing , and NO ONE has come even remotely close in duplicating oder surpassing his mark , yet, he really didn't liked being called " KING " , he used to say : " THERE'S ONLY 1 KING, THAT'S Jesus CHRIST , amen brodar, amen.

Can't Du see
I Liebe you
Please don't break my herz in two
That's not hard to do
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
And if Du say goodbye
Then I know that I would cry
Maybe I would die
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
There's no strings upon this Liebe of mine
It was always Du from the start
Treat me nice
Treat me good
Treat me like Du really should
'Cause I'm not made of wood
And I don't have a wooden heart

Muss i denn, muss i denn
Zum Stadtele hinaus
Stadtele hinaus
Und du, mein Schatz, bleibst hier?

There's no strings upon this Liebe of mine
It was always Du from the start
Sei mir gut
Sei mir gut
Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst
Wie du wirklich sollst
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart

Don't want a four leaf clover
Don't want an old horse shoe
Want your KISS 'cause I just can't miss
With a good luck charm like you

Come on and be my little good luck charm
Uh-huh huh, Du sweet delight
I want a good luck charm
a-hanging on my arm
To have, to have, to hold, to hold tonight

Don't want a silver dollar
Rabbit's foot on a string
The happiness in your warm caress
No rabbit's foot can bring

Come on and be my little good luck charm
Uh-huh huh, Du sweet delight
I want a good luck charm
a-hanging on my arm
To have, to have, to hold, to hold tonight

If I found a lucky penny
I'd toss it across the bay
Your Liebe is worth all the Gold on earth
No wonder that I say

Come on and be my little good luck charm
Uh-huh huh, Du sweet delight
I want a good luck charm
a-hanging on my arm
To have, to have, to hold, to hold tonight
