Elvis Presley - It Keeps Right on A-Hurtin’

February 20, 1969

Elvis was at the American Sound Studios for an all night recording session. He recorded “Any Day Now” and “It Keeps Right on A-Hurtin’.” The latter was first recorded by Johnny Tillotson, who also wrote the song, in 1962. Elvis changed the lyrics ”Holds my lonely tears instead” to “Now holds my empty dreams instead” and “They say a man should never cry” to “They say a man ain’t supposed to cry.”
