Thread Name: Did Elvis ever sing any folk songs?
Subject: RE: Did Elvis ever sing any folk songs?
when i listen to my documentaries about the stars i fined it is very good to hear that elvis never wrote any of his songs at all. elvis stole old recordings from artists that he would like. when elvis when he was 15 years old he listen to his dad play the shelton brothers sing aura lee he liked the song too much. i watched it in my house i have today and found it on a cd album called the roots of elvis. in 1949 tony martin had a number 2 hit with there's no tomorrow that song stayed in the charts for many weeks. i have seen many tribute stars do elvis songs like love me tender a song written by vera maxwell and ken derby set to the tune of aura lee. from joe.
