Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Lewis / Burns Elvis Presley Lyrics

I am the king of the jungle
They call me the tiger man
I am the king of the jungle
They call me tiger man
If you cross my path
You take your own life in your hands

Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
My black cat comes a runnin'
And the hound dogs get way back

Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
My black cat comes a runnin'
And the hound dogs get way back

Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
Yeah, I get up on a mountain
And I call my black cat back
My black cat comes a runnin'
And the hound dogs get way back

June 4, 1970 - Elvis begins five days of recording at RCA's Studio B in Nashville, reporting each evening at 6.00pm and working until the dawn hours. The decision to follow up the magnificent sessions in Memphis by going back to RCA's Nashville studio and hiring Nashville musicians, must have puzzled quite a few people at the time. However, as Chip Moman's Memphis studio had folded, both RCA and Felton Jarvis must have been pleased to see the situation return to what it had been before - RCA because of administrative differences with Chip Moman, and Jarvis because he would once more be in total control again. Felton Jarvis had quit RCA in the beginning of 1970, and from the June sessions onwards would work for Elvis exclusively, both in the recording studios and with live recordings. ln this capacity Jarvis supervised all the arrangements such as booking studios, hiring musicians, and staying in touch with the various publishing companies and RCA

July, After the marathon session, 35 masters in 5 days, in Nashville, Elvis enjoyed himself until he had to go west for the upcoming Las Vegas engagement. On June 22 he bought three snow mobiles, which were able to drive the Graceland grass. He went to Nashville, maybe to review and repair some recordings, he stayed in Dallas for a couple of days and flew back to Memphis as 'John Carpenter', together with Richard Davis and Charlie Hodge. Until he went to California he saw screenings in the Memphian every night.

January 20, 1975 - Elvis put down a deposit of $75,000 on an impounded Boeing 707 but the deal fallsl through. The previous owner had been Robert Vesco, the fugitive financier who had fled to South America after allegedly embezzling hundreds of millions of dollars from international investment firms. Buying his plane would involve some complicated wrangling with the IRS. And Elvis was warned about another complication: If the plane ever landed in any of the countries Vesco was establishing a base in, there was every reason to believe that he might try to seize it. In April Elvis buys a Convair 880 Jet recently taken out of service by Delta Airlines for the then-substantial sum of $250,000. With complete refurbishing the total exceeded $600,000.

He immediately rechristened it the Lisa Marie.

Late January 1975, instead of in Las Vegas for his usual season Elvis is admitted to Baptist Memorial Hospital. Several physical problems forced him to stay in the hospital until February 14, but no surgery was necessary. A positive side effect of Elvis' stay in the hospital was that he kicked off a bit from unnecessary addictive pills.

The cancelled shows from January/February were moved to the second half of March.

February 5, Vernon Presley has a heart attack and is admitted to the hospital, where he recuperates in a room next to Elvis' - Linda Thompson outside Baptist Memorial Hospital Elvis Presley Photos - Feb 12, 1975

February 14, Elvis is discharged from the hospital, returning to Graceland to recuperate.

March 3, Elvis flies to California for a recording session that starts on March 10.

March 10, 1975 - The session that would make up Elvis''Today' album begins at RCA's Sunset Boulevard Studios at 9.00am when Elvis arrives with Sheila Ryan and Lisa Marie.
