Where do you come from?
Tell me who you are
Do you come from another world
Or from some distant star?

Where do you come from?
Are you what you seem?
Are you real,
Are you standing there,
Or is it just a dream?

Tell me more about yourself
Do you feel the way I feel?
Are you just a vision,
Or are you really real?

Where do you come from?
Angel won't you say?
Tell me all that there is to know
And tell me that you'll stay.

Recorded: 1962

There is a little song that he does with just a guitar no background at all, and it's something about a star falling from the heaven and it's short. I haven't heard it in a long time-I have got to get a record player, a dvd player and a new television with a bigger screen so I can see this dude better! Yeah. I liked that little song, he put it on one of the tapes he made for us, and I think he sang it live on there-I have no clue as to it's title now and haven't heard it in ages-it's on 8 track-our's died a while ago...and haven't found one to buy or rent even to record them off to cassette...my next project maybe. In the meantime, I have other stuff to hear but there are some things on 8 track that would be nice to hear again.
And I don't have the dvd's you guys speak of either-but I want them! First need a machine to play them on- Now that we have less horses I may have some extra money to do that very thing. I'll start with the recommended ones on ELC and buy them through there also. Well, bye, and hope you are all having a Happy Easter - we have beautiful, nice weather. Not too cool or too hot-it's usually one or the other where we live. I hate hot weather-can't go out to do anything in the day time. 115 is darn hot! wjh

I think it's the song,Forget Me Never ..and it's really something else.. the way he sounds the tenderness in his voice..we ,mom dad and bro ,used to listen to that song mostly sitting in our car on a seaside, while watching the moon and the sea..God! it was magical..just his voice singing..I was a teen and my parents were younger and healthy in those days..we 4 shared the Elvis love ..well Wanda you're right..there's a lot of good stuff to watch and listen to..they worth to buy some hi-fi system. :wink: .

Yes, that's it. It had not been recorded when he played guitar and sang it for the tape we got for Christmas-him doing that, playing flamenco music and talking Spanish
and humming off key on purpose while playing the organ and then he sits down with the guitar and does that song so sweetly and played a solo on the guitar and then there is a second verse--- because he sang it but I don't know if it's on the recorded song or not now. And he did another one about "the old tom cat was feelin' fine until he fell in a bucket of turpintine...he's movin' on- he's real far gone..." and other lyrics that were funny and a bit risque in places... and he said, "Jim, you get it...you get it..." in the chorus. Jim's my husband-and he laughed because it referred to a joke between he and Elvis and I was not included in it ever. They had a thing like that between from day one- he would call and ask Jimmie if he could talk to me or have me come where he was going to be! But he wasn't to ever tell me-I didn't know for a great long time...then Jimmie let it slip out but I never said anything to Elvis about it. So he thought it was still "their secret". He got a kick out of it I think...getting permission! Good grief even. wjh Southern men!

Post subject:  baby boy

Yes, he was that and more... and he was a 'baby boy' in some many ways. I mothered him so much, and then when he was gone, I realized just how patient he was because he never once said a word about my "telling him what to do" or "mothering him to death" when he could have easily done so-maybe even thought it, but he said nothing or even implied it was too much- He would always say when I sort of got after him about something, "but you still love me, don't ya?" And how could anyone not tell him, that baby boy- they didn't love him? He would if here today, tell us he is not a "baby boy" he is a "grown man-even if I do sometimes act like a damn fool!" Then he could turn around and sound like he wanted some one to wrap him in their arms and hug him and tell him what a sweet boy he was...you could hear the lost little kid in his voice when he was hurt or lonely.
I liked him immediately-after the second time I spoke to him on my friend's telephone-but I didn't get to know him all at once- he let me see the "him" in small doses so to speak...a little at a time and he didn't really open up until after a bout two years time- then he finally trusted me completely or as much as he would ever trust me-...there were things he didn't ever mention-that I learned after his passing-and some of them were kind of a surprise that he did not say anything to me-but did to other people that I knew. But he had his reasons and that was good enough for me, even though I wondered about some of them...just small stuff-the things he said to me were heavy at times... hurt me to hear, but i never said anything to him about worrying over him or what he said; he told me he was aware of what he had "put me through" before he died, and was sorry but so glad that I listened and understood how much he needed someone to talk to who was not someone he had to face every day-to live with or work with. I knew he had enough on his mind -if it helped him carry the load, fine, I'd carry some of it too. We all felt that way, I think we all still do-and by that all-I mean people like yourself and the other's who have posted here and who will post here in large numbers when they become aware of this site-I believe that will be quite a few. I know they are out there-they just don't know where to go to find like minds when it comes to Elvis- There are so many hurtful people, who like to dig at others and who like stomping on Elvis-they can't help it-that's just the nature of the world in this time period but it will change-it's coming and it will be for the better of all. I believe that. Everything comes full circle...and it's getting there again. Elvis will find his full respect and rightful place among those held up to the light and praised for their achievements and talent. It is already happened in someplaces- like some colleges are teaching classes and using him-and they are saying good things...stressing how he struggled to overcome great odds, pressure and the over whelming load of being so popular and made into a "god" like creature when he was mortal man and had natural weakness that come with being a mortal in this world. I am encouraged by those few who are holding him up to the light and finding him less spotted than what has been told in the past. It's a good thing-only takes a few to turn the tide... and we can be part of those few... the tide will turn, it may come in like a tidal wave! I'm building a levee! A tall one. wjh.

HA,HA!! :lol: I 'd tease him to death calling him baby boy if he was here :wink: ..awww..he is for me,the most sensitive,intelligent,and enlightened baby boy ever.. :D
Well it's upsetting,even destroying inside to see, how some people can't see the truth about him,the light he keeps spreading ever since...but even if I loose nearly all my hope on other things,I'll still be hoping everyone will get to know him as who he really was, oneday..

Where do you come from?
Tell me who you are
Do you come from another world
Or from some distant star?

Elvis Presley Where Do You Come From

Written by Ruth Batchelor and Bob Roberts for Elvis's 1962 movie Girls! Girls! Girls!, but it was not used in the film.

Elvis recorded it in March 1962 at Radio Recorders.

The song spent one week on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, peaking at #99.
It was the B-side to Return to Sender.
It is available on FTD Girls! Girls! Girls! Soundtrack and Out in Hollywood.

Thanks! We have the record with it on it, however we do not have a record player! These great new electronic devices are great, but we want to find a
regular good sounding, record player soon. And bring out of storage all our
records - of course so we can put them on cd.... ha...and then be able to
hear them any time, especially in the car, and my truck. I didn't realize how
"old" that tune was... I was only 23 years old... time does fly...

Have a great evening!
