I'm so hurt to think that you lied to me
I'm hurt way down deep inside of me
You said our love was true
And we'll never, never part
Now you've got someone new
And it breaks my heart
I'm hurt, much more than you'll ever know
Yes darling, I'm so hurt
Because I still love you so
Even though you hurt me
Like nobody else could ever do
I would never hurt, hurt you

'Elvis, if you're watching - I wouldn't mind getting a car too'. Don Kinney contradicts this and tells his story.

On Tour March 1976
Back on the concert circuit for the first time since July 1975, Elvis Presley's 16th tour throughout the States was a very short one and started with some confusion. Glen Hardin resigned and James Burton and Ronnnie Tutt indicated that they would leave as well. At the last minute Burton returned, the others were replaced.
James Burton had threatened to leave the band, unless he was given a raise. Parker refused at first, but Elvis agreed… raising not only Burton's, but all fees. Shane Kiester had replaced Glen D. Hardin on keyboards, and Larry Londin sat in for Ronnie Tutt, who joined the Grateful Dead. After just 8 shows, Kiester chose a career of his own and in April he quit the band leaving the keyboards to Tony Brown.
After the first show, Elvis made it clear that he was 'not amused' with the lack of security on and off stage. Later that day, local police officers managed to pull down a few female fans from the fire ladder outside the hotel - they had climbed the ladder in a futile attempt to see a glimpse of Elvis in his hotel room.

Early November, 1976
Elvis and Linda Thompson, his steady girlfriend since 1972, split up.
November 23, Jerry Lee Lewis appears at the gates of Graceland in the early hours of the morning, waving a gun and demanding to see Elvis. According to the Memphis Press-Scimitar, 'Witnesses were quoted as saying [he] was screaming and cursing ... and police reported the singer was sitting in his car with a loaded .38 caliber derringer resting on his knee when they arrived'. This is the second night in a row that Lewis has shown up, telling Elvis' cousin Harold Loyd that he and Elvis have been trying to get together for a long time.
Elvis watches the whole drama on closed-circuit monitors.
