Lyrics : Written by Emmylou Harris

 You don't love me this I know
 Don't need a bible to tell me so
 I hung around a little too long
 I was good but now I'm gone

 Like the buffalo
 That boy from Tupelo
 Any way the wind can blow
 That's where I'm gonna go
 I'll be gone like a five and dime
 It'll be the perfect crime
 Just ask the boy from Tupelo
 He's the king and he oughta know

 The shoulder I've been leanin on
 Is the coldest place I've ever known
 There's nothin left for me round here
 Looks like it's time to disapear

 Like the buffalo
 That boy from Tupelo
 The old wall down in jericho
 Maybelle on the radio
 I'll be gone like the five and dime
 It'll be the perfect crime
 Just ask the boy from Tupelo
 He's the king and he oughta know

 You don't love me, this I know
 Don't need a bible to tell me so
 It's a shame and it's a sin
 Everything I coulda been to you

 Your last chance Texaco
 Your sweetheart of the rodeo
 A juliet to your romeo
 The border you cross into Nexico
 I'll never understand why or how
 Oh but baby its too late now
 Just ask the boy from Tupelo
 He's the king and he oughta know

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.

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.

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.
