Elvis Presley - This Is Living [Stereo Master]
Recorded October 27, 1961

"It wouldn’t mean a thing
If I could be a king
I really wouldn’t care
To be a millionaire
I’d rather find someone to love a lot
Live and give it all I’ve got

This is living, full of fun and free
This is living, that’s the life for me”

Elvis Presley - King Of The Whole Wide World [Alternate Master]
Recorded October 26, 1961

Elvis Presley - Clean Up Your Own Back Yard
Recorded October 23, 1968

"Drugstore cowboy criticizing
Acting like he’s better than you and me
Standing on the sidewalk supervising
Telling everybody how they ought to be
Come closing time ‘most every night
He locks up tight and out go the lights
And he ducks out of sight and he cheats on his wife
With his employee

Clean up your own backyard
Oh don’t you hand me none of your lines
Clean up your own backyard
You tend to your business, I’ll tend to mine”

Elvis Presley - That’s All Right [Live]

Elvis Presley - Anything That’s Part of You
Recorded October 15, 1961

Written by Don Robertson who wrote some of Elvis’ most beautiful ballads from the sixties.

"Oh, how it hurts to miss you so
When I know you don’t love me anymore
To go on needing you
Knowing you don’t need me

No reason left for me to live
What can I take, what can I give
When I’d give all of someone new
For anything that’s part of you”

Elvis Presley - Anyone (Could Fall in Love with You) [Master]

Elvis Presley - She’s A Machine [Record Version]
Recorded September 29, 1966 for the movie “Easy Come, Easy Go.”

Elvis hated these silly movies songs and I can’t blame him…

"She’ll wrap those arms around you
Like a grizzly bear
She’ll kiss you every fifteen minutes
And lets you up for air
'Cause she's a earth quakin', hip shakin'
Soul breakin’, love makin’, machine”

Elvis Presley - I Miss You
Recorded September 23, 1973

"Dreams that I had, they lay broken in sorrow
The plans I made, the hopes for tomorrow
If I could I would tell you I’m lonesome tonight dear
Oh I miss you and I wish you were here”
