Roy Orbison who Elvis called "Quite simply, the greatest singer in the world" wrote a song in 1979 called Hound Dog Man dedicated to our man Elvis...Another interesting but quite sad fact was that Roy like Elvis suffered his fatal heart attack in his bathroom, but didnt die in the bathroom he was found before he died (unlike Elvis :roll: ) however Roy died in the hospital upon arrival on Dec 6th 1988.
Anyways enjoy :D

Quote:
Hey, hound dog man,
Where you been now,where you been?
I wish that you were back,
It was too good to ever end.
Once in a while someone like you
Will give everything for what you wanted to do.

Hey, hound dog man,
My old friend play it again.

You gave the world a whole lot of joy
Now that ain't bad for a country boy
I just knew you could not lose
The way you sang rock and roll and blues.
I still think about these things
And the memory that it brings

Hey, hound dog man,
My old friend,play it again.
Hey, hound dog man,
My old friend,play it again

Sometimes I think about James Dean,
Sammy Cooke and my teenage queen.
Doo ron, de ron, de ron,
Marilyn Monroe and hot rod fun.
I still think about these things
And the memory that it brings.

Hey, hound dog man,
My old friend,play it again.
Hey, hound dog man,
My old friend why did it end?
Hey, hound dog man,
My old friend, why did it end.

there are haunting similarities between Roy and Elvis.. I mean Pretty Woman Roy wrote it for his first wife who Roy met when she 14!! and after she passed he married a German girl :lol:
