Elvis Presley SongDataBase

Summer Kisses, Winter Tears

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Fred Wise / Ben Weisman / Lloyd Elvis Presley Lyrics

Ben Weisman: 'Summer Kisses, Winter Tears' was written for Elvis' movie Flaming Star. It was a lovely ballad written to be sung by Elvis to his leading lady during a love scene. Unfortunately, the powers-that-be decided to have him sing it to a group of Indian sitting around a campfire smoking a peace pipe!

'At the preview, the audience broke into laughter when the scene occurred, and I don't blame them. As a result, the song was cut from the film. Over twenty years later in 1992, as fate would have it again, Elvis' recording was released in a Wim Wenders' film entitled 'Until The End Of The World', directed by David Lynch'.

Summer Kisses, Winter Tears

Summer kisses, Winter tears
That was what she gave to me
Never thought that I'd travel all alone
The trail of memories

Happy hours, lonely years
But I guess I can't complain
For I still recall the Summer sun
Through all the Winter rain

The fire of love, the fire of love
Can burn from afar
And nothing can light the dark of the night
Like a falling star
Summer kisses, Winter tears
Like the stars they fade away
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
With dreams of yesterday

The fire of love, the fire of love
Can burn from afar
And nothing can light the dark of the night
Like a falling star
Summer kisses, Winter tears
Like the stars they fade away
Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
With dreams of yesterday

Leaving me to spend my lonely nights
With dreams of yesterday
Summer kisses, Winter tears

Recorded: 1960/08/08, first released on EP, then on Elvis For Everyone

July 11, 1960 - Rock and roll king Elvis Presley hugged singer Anita Wood close early yesterday on a clinging  ride called 'The Rocket' at the Fairgrounds Amusement Park Elvis Presley Photos in an after-midnight fun spree. Elvis rented the park from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. and invited about 75 friends to help him kick up his heels.

August / September, Elvis records and films for his sixth movie, Flaming Star, a drama with limited music. Elvis plays the son of a white father and a Native American mother, torn between the two cultures in the 1800's.

October 16, Elvis breaks his finger playing touch football at Graceland. Elvis was first treated first at Campbell Clinic, where doctors decided to transfer him to the hospital because they didn't have enough space to accommodate the anticipated large number of visitors. His touch football teammates and Anita Wood, disk jockey and Elvis' frequent companion when he is in Memphis, accompanied him to the hospital.

after spending one night, declaring 'I Don't Have Any Business in a Hospital'

Elvis spends one night in Hospital, declaring 'I don't have any business in a Hospital' and checking out the following morning. Elvis said, 'I don't mind hospitals - this one is really fine - but I don't have any business here. Things like this happen every day. I'm ready to get out of here'. To prove his point he accommodated a student nurse by signing his autograph with his right hand - the one on which the little finger was broken.

Explaining how he came to break his finger, Elvis said 'I got my man, too - and he was just a step or two away from a touchdown. I dived for him, see, and after tagging him my hand landed in some mud and buried up in it'.

'At first I didn't notice it - it didn't hurt me at all - until one of the fellows told me the little finger was bent all the way over the other fingers'. No, it won't affect my strumming a guitar.

I don't know how long I'll have to wear the cast - just a few days, I think'.

Elvis was dressed and ready to leave the hospital but his doctors were wanting him to stay another 24 hours. Elvis himself was more concerned about a slight cold and a sore throat he had today.

'My ice pack melted and the water spilled on me somehow' he said'.I'm also still groggy from the sodium pentothal they used when they set my finger. It sure knocked me out'.

Through out the night and morning, a steady procession of registered nurses, student nurses and nurses aides - young and old - filed into Elvis' room to take his temperature, check his pulse, give him a hypo to put him to sleep, ask what he wanted for breakfast - and ask for his autograph

The hospital posted a guard at the door to keep other visitors out.

The rock'n'roll king had a hospital breakfast of oat-meal and bananas while he waited for his doctor's word on whether he could be discharged. Elvis was discharged at 11:30 a.m.
