Beware of a gal in britches
Never trust no gal in britches
If you had a sense of this here horse
You would have known it by now of course
Who wears the britches is the boss
That's a gal, that's a gal in britches
Don't mess with a gal in britches
No feminine gal wears britches
She'll beg you to come to the country dance
You ride twenty miles for the big romance
She shows up in her brother's pants
What'd you expect from a girl in britches
Yo-di-o-di-o-i-ay, It's none of my misfortune
Yo-di-o-di-o-di-ay, Just thought you'd like to know
Don't marry no gal in britches
You'll never know which is which's
She'll put a halter through your nose
Have you cooking and washing clothes
While she goes chasing them buffaloes
Bet your boots, that's a gal in britches.

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.
Elvis breaks his finger playing touch football at Graceland, Elvis visits a hospital and goes home
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.
Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
