Barefoot Ballad

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Dolores Fuller / Lee Morris Elvis Presley Lyrics

I want a barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a down home country song
'Cause when I kick my shoes off and I kick my blues off
With a barefoot ballad you just can't go wrong

Give me a honk-tonk fiddle with a guitar in the middle and a melody
Humming like a fountain swinging out on Smokey mountain

I want a barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a down home country song
'Cause when I kick my shoes off and I kick my blues off
With a barefoot ballad you just can't go wrong

Now the big toe's connected to the two toe
And the two toe's connected to the three toe
And the three toe's connected to the four toe
And the four toe's connected to the five toe
And the five toe and away we go

I want a barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a down home country song
'Cause when I kick my shoes off and I kick my blues off
With a barefoot ballad you just can't go wrong

Now the big toe's connected to the two toe
And the two toe's connected to the three toe
And the three toe's connected to the four toe
And the four toe's connected to the five toe
And the five toe and away we go

I wanna barefoot ballad yes a barefoot ballad
Won't you play for me a barefoot ballad song.

Late November 1963, Fun in Acapulco opens nationally and quickly goes to number five at the box office.

The soundtrack goes to the top five on the pop chart.

More than 150 people jammed into the mayor's office Tuesday December 17, 1963 to see Elvis Presley hand out Christmas checks totaling $55,000. The checks benefitted 58 Memphis and Mid-South charities. In appreciation, the organizations presented Elvis with a six-foot plaque. It was warm in the room and when Commmissioner Claude Armour announced Elvis was going to pass out the checks, the singer wiped his brow and said, "Elvis is going to pass out, period."
