Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Anita and Bonnie Pointer Elvis Presley Lyrics

I'll pack up all my things and walk away,
I don't want to hear another word you have to say
I've been waiting for so long
I just found out there's something wrong
And there's nothing what get better if I stay

There's no need to explain anymore
I tried my best to love you, now I'm walking out the door
You used me, you deceived me,
And you never seemed to need me
But I'll bet you won't forget me when I go

Seems I've been lost in a dream
Pretending that you care
But now I've opened up my eyes
And found it's all been just a great big fairytale

I've been lovin' you so long
Don't think I'd even know how to forget you
But now the way that things have been
I think I'm better off alone
Than to be with you

There's no need to explain anymore
I tried my best to love you, now I'm walking out the door
You used me, you deceived me,
And you never seemed to need me
But I'll bet you won't forget me when I go

Seems like I've been lost in a dream
Pretending you were mine
Someday you'll open up your eyes
And realize that a good man's hard to find

Recorded: 1975/03/10, first released on Today

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.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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.
