I'm Counting on You

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Don Robertson Elvis Presley Lyrics

Elvis first recorded one of Don's songs, I'm Counting on You, in 1956 for his first RCA album.

A few years later, Elvis invited Don to come to Radio Recorders in Hollywood to meet with him. They met and talked and hit it off. After the session he invited Don to come up to his house for the evening. This was the first of many get togethers in Hollywood, Bel Air and Las Vegas.

Elvis not only admired Don as a songwriter, but also as a pianist. Don can be heard accompanying Elvis on piano, organ and electric piano on the soundtrack of the movie, 'It Happened At The World's Fair'.

I'm Counting on You

All the words that I let her know
Still could not say
How much I need you so in every way
I hope you will guide me
As only you can do
Hold my hands down beside me
I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you dear
From the dawn of each day
To always come through dear
In your kind lovin' way
If you knew just how deeply
I feel things you do
Then you know how completely
I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you dear
Around the dawn of each day
To always come true, dear
In your kind lovin' way
If you knew just how deeply
I feel things you do
Then you know how completely
I'm counting on you
