    songwriters: Otis Blackwell/Elvis Presley

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    A well I bless my soul
    What’s wrong with me?
    I’m itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
    My friends say I’m actin’ wild as a bug
    I’m in love
    I’m all shook up
    Mm mm, Mm mm, yea, yea, yea!

    My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
    I can’t seem to stand on my own two feet
    Who do you thank when you have such luck?
    I’m in love
    I’m all shook up
    Mm mm, Mm mm, yea, yea, yea!

    Please don’t ask me what’s on my mind
    I’m a little mixed up, but I’m feelin’ fine
    When I’m near that girl that I love best
    My heart beats so it scares me to death!

    When she touched my hand what a chill I got
    Her lips are like a vulcano when it's hot
    I’m proud to say she’s my buttercup
    I’m in love
    I’m all shook up
    Mm mm, Mm mm, yea, yea, yea!

    My tongue get tied when I try to speak
    My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
    There’s only one cure for this body of mine
    That’s to have the girl that I love so fine!

    When she touched my hand what a chill I got
    Her lips are like a vulcano when it's hot
    I’m proud to say she’s my buttercup
    I’m in love
    I’m all shook up
    Mm mm, Mm mm, yea, yea, yea!

    Mm mm, Mm mm, yea, yea, yea!
    I’m all shook up

    A white sports coat and a pink carnation
    I'm all dressed up for the dance
    A white sports coat and a pink carnation
    I'm all alone in romance

    Once you told me long ago
    To the prom with me you'd go
    Now you've changed your mind it seems
    Someone else will hold my dreams

    A white sports coat and a pink carnation
    I'm in a blue blue mood.

    I'm all dressed up for the dance
    I'm all alone in romance

    Once you told me long ago
    To the prom with me you'd go
    Now you've changed your mind it seems
    Someone else will hold my dreams

    A white sports coat and a pink carnation
    I'm in a blue blue mood

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    I got me a room in a cheap hotel my head was a spinning and I didn't feel well
    I laid right down and tried to go to sleep a band was playing in the joint underneath
    I picked up my pillow and I covered up my head
    But the band kept a playing and a shaking my bed

    Honky tonk all night long honky tonk same old song
    Honky tonk my money's all gone honky tonk she done me wrong
    I turned and I tossed and I couldn't go to sleep
    Cause the band kept a playing with a honky tonk beat

    Well I'm so blue my baby's gone she took all my money and left me all alone
    I'm tryin' to forget her but I don't know what to do
    The honky tonk song keeps a leaking through
    I picked up my pillow and I covered up my head
    But the band keeps a playing and a shaking my bed

    Honky tonk all night long honky tonk same old song
    Honky tonk my money's all gone honky tonk she done me wrong
    I turned and I tossed and I couldn't go to sleep
    Cause the band keeps a playing with a honky tonk beat

    songwriters: George Campbell/Marvin Moore
    May 27th. 1957 - (#1 - 8 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Out where the bright lights are glowing
    You're drawn like a moth to a flame
    You laugh while the wine's overflowing
    While I sit and whisper your name

    Four walls to hear me
    Four walls to see
    Four walls too near me
    Closing in on me

    Sometimes I ask why I'm waiting
    But my walls have nothing to say
    I'm made for love not for hating
    So here where you left me I'll stay

    One night with you is like heaven
    And so while I'm walking the floor
    I listen for steps in the hallway
    And wait for your knock on my door

    Four walls to hear me
    Four walls to see
    Four walls too near me
    Closing in on me
    Closing in on me (fades out)

    Bye bye love
    Bye bye happiness,
    Hello loneliness
    I think I'm-a gonna cry-y
    Bye bye love,

    I feel like I could die
    Bye bye my love goodbye

    There goes my baby with-a someone new
    She sure looks happy, I sure am blue
    She was my baby till he stepped in
    Goodbye to romance that might have been

    Bye bye love
    Bye bye happiness,

    I think I'm-a gonna cry-y
    Bye bye love,
    Bye bye sweet caress,
    Hello emptiness
    I feel like I could die
    Bye bye my love goodbye

    I'm-a through with romance, I'm a-through with love
    I'm through with a-countin' the stars above
    And here's the reason that I'm so free
    My lovin' baby is through with me

    Bye bye love
    Bye bye happiness,
    Hello loneliness
    I think I'm-a gonna cry-y
    Bye bye love,
    Bye bye sweet caress,
    Hello emptiness
    I feel like I could die
    Bye bye my love goodbye

    Bye bye my love goodbye
    Bye bye my love goodbye...

    Far across deep blue waters, lives an old German's daughter
    By the banks of the old river Rhine
    Where I loved her and left her, but I can't forget her
    I miss my pretty Fraulein

    Fraulein, Fraulein, look up toward the Heaven
    Each night when the stars start to shine
    By the same stars above you, I swear that I love you
    You are my pretty fraulein

    When my memories wander, away over yonder
    To the sweetheart that I left behind
    In a moment of glory, a face comes before me
    The face of my pretty Fraulein

    Fraulein, Fraulein, walk down by the river
    Pretend that your hand's holdin' mine
    By the same stars above you, I swear that I love you
    You are my pretty Fraulein

    Wake up, little Susie, wake up
    Wake up, little Susie, wake up
    We've both been sound asleep, wake up, little Susie, and weep
    The movie's over, it's four o'clock, and we're in trouble deep
    Wake up little Susie
    Wake up little Susie, well

    Whatta we gonna tell your mama
    Whatta we gonna tell your pa
    Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say, ooh-la-la
    Wake up little Susie
    Wake up little Susie, well

    Well I told your mama that you'd be in by ten
    Well Susie baby looks like we goofed again
    Wake up little Susie
    Wake up little Susie, we gotta go home

    Wake up, little Susie, wake up
    Wake up, little Susie, wake up
    The movie wasn't so hot, it didn't have much of a plot
    We fell asleep, our goose is cooked, our reputation is shot
    Wake up little Susie
    Wake up little Susie, well

    Whatta we gonna tell your mama
    Whatta we gonna tell your pa
    Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say, ooh-la-la

    Wake up little Susie
    Wake up little Susie
    Wake up little Susie

    "Jailhouse Rock"

    by Elvis Presley
    Born: 01/08/1935 Died: 08/16/1977 Cause: Heart attack complicated by drug abuse
    songwriters: Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller
    Dec. 2nd, 1957 - (#1 - 1 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    The warden threw a party in the county jail.
    The prison band was there and they began to wail.
    The band was jumpin’ and the joint began to swing.
    You should’ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.
    Let’s rock, everybody, let’s rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock.

    Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone,
    Little Joe was blowin’ on the slide trombone.
    The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang,
    The whole rhythm section was the purple gang.
    Let’s rock, everybody, let’s rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock.

    Number forty-seven said to number three:
    You’re the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
    I sure would be delighted with your company,
    Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me.
    Let’s rock, everybody, let’s rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock.

    The sad sack was a sittin’ on a block of stone
    but over in the corner weepin’ all alone.
    The warden said, hey, buddy, don’t you be no square.
    If you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair.
    Let’s rock, everybody, let’s rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock.

    Shifty Henry said to bugs, for heaven’s sake,
    No one’s lookin’, now’s our chance to make a break.
    Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, nix nix,
    I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks.
    Let’s rock, everybody, let’s rock.
    Everybody in the whole cell block
    Was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock.

    Dancin’ to the jailhouse rock
    Dancin’ to the jailhouse rock
    (fades) dancin’ to the jailhouse rock
    dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Someday I'm gonna write
    The story of my life
    I'll tell about the night we met
    And how my heart can't forget the way you smiled at me

    I want the world to know
    The story of my life
    The moment when your lips met mine
    And that first exciting time I held you close to me

    **The sorrow when our love was breaking up
    The memory of a broken heart
    Then later on the joy of making up


    Never never more to part

    There's one thing left to do
    Before my story's through
    I've got to take you for my wife
    So the story of my life can start and end with you

    (** repeat last two verses)

    Can start and end
    Can start and end
    with you

    You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain,
    Too much love drives a man insane
    You broke my will, but what a thrill
    Goodness gracious, Great Balls Of Fire!

    I laughed at love 'cause I thought it was funny,

    Kiss me baby,

    Hold me baby,
    Weeel, I want to love you like a lover should
    You're fine, so kind,
    I would tell this world that you're mine, mine, mine, mine!

    I chew my nails and I twiddle my thumbs,
    I'm real nervous, but it sure is fun
    Come on, baby, you drive me crazy!

    Goodness gracious, Great Balls Of Fire!

    Weeeel, kiss me baby,

    "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen"

    by Johnny Cash
    Born: 02/26/1931 Died: 09/12/2003 Cause: Complications from diabetes
    songwriters: Jack Clement
    Feb. 3rd., 1958 - (#1 - 10 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    (Dream on, dream on teenage queen prettiest girl we've ever seen)

    There's a story in our town
    Of the prettiest girl around
    Golden hair and eyes of blue
    How those eyes could flash at you (How those eyes could flash at you)
    Boys hung 'round her by the score
    But she loved the boy next door who worked at the candy store
    (Dream on, dream on teenage queen prettiest girl we've ever seen)

    She was tops in all they said
    It never once went to her head
    She had everything it seems
    Not a care, this teenage queen (Not a care, this teenage queen)
    Other boys could offer more
    But she loved the boy next door who worked at the candy store
    (Dream on, dream on teenage queen you should be a movie queen)

    He would marry her next spring
    Saved his money, bought a ring
    Then one day a movie scout
    Came to town to take her out (Came to town to take her out)
    Hollywood could offer more
    So she left the boy next door working at the candy store
    (Dream on, dream on teenage queen see you on the movie screen)

    Very soon she was a star
    Pretty house and shiny car
    Swimming pool and a fence around
    But she missed her old home town (But she missed her old home town)
    All the world was at her door
    All except the boy next door who worked at the candy store
    (Dream on, dream on teenage queen saddest girl we've ever seen)

    Then one day the teenage star
    Sold her house and all her cars
    Gave up all her wealth and fame
    Left it all and caught a train (Left it all and caught a train)
    Do I have to tell you more

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Everybody's going out and having fun
    I'm just a fool for staying home and having none
    I can't get over how she set set me free oh lonesome me

    A bad mistake I'm making by just hanging round
    I know that I should have some fun and paint the town
    A lovesick fool is blind and just can't see oh lonesome me

    I'll bet she's not like me she's out and fancy free
    She's flirtin' with the boys with all her charms
    But I still love her so and brother don't you know
    I'd welcome her right back here in my arms

    Well there must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues
    Forget about the past and find somebody new
    I've thought of everything from A to Z oh lonesome me

    I'll bet she's not like me she's out and fancy free
    She's flirtin' with the boys with all her charms
    But I still love her so and brother don't you know
    I'd welcome her right back here in my arms

    Well there must be some way I can lose these lonesome blues
    Forget about the past and find somebody new
    I've thought of everything from A to Z oh lonesome me

    Oh lonesome me

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Just married this mornin'
    How happy they are
    "Just Married" written on
    The window of a-their car
    It broke my heart
    To see them drive away
    I lost the one I love today

    Dressed all in white satin,
    White lace in her hair
    She looked so lovely
    It was more than I could bear
    Some people guessed the way I felt inside
    They saw the tears I could not hide

    I should have stayed at home
    I knew what was in store,
    But somethin' made me come
    To see her just once more

    Just married this mornin'
    How happy they are
    "Just Married" written on
    The window of a-their car
    It broke my heart
    To see them drive away
    I lost the one I love today

    I should have stayed at home
    I knew what was in store,
    But somethin' made me come
    To see her just once more

    Just married this mornin'
    How happy they are
    "Just Married" written on
    The window of a-their car
    It broke my heart
    To see them drive away
    I lost the one I love today

    Anytime night or day
    Only trouble is, gee whiz
    I’m dreamin’ my life away

    I need you so that I could die
    I love you so and that is why
    Whenever I want you, all I have to do is

    I need you so that I could die
    I love you so and that is why
    Whenever I want you, all I have to do is

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Well you ask me if I'll forget my baby
    I guess I will, someday
    I don't like it but I guess things happen that way
    You ask me if I'll get along
    I guess I will, someway
    I don't like it but I guess things happen that way

    God gave me that girl to lean on,
    then he put me on my own
    Heaven help me be a man
    and have the strength to stand alone
    I don't like it but I guess things happen that way

    You ask me if I'll miss her kisses
    I guess I will, everyday
    I don't like it but I guess things happen that way
    You ask me if I'll find another
    I don't know. I can't say
    I don't like it but I guess things happen that way

    God gave me that girl to lean on,
    then he put me on my own
    Heaven help me be a man
    and have the strength to stand alone
    I don't like it but I guess things happen that way

    songwriters: Roy Drusky/Lester Vanadore/Faron Young

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    How I'd love to be around you
    When the lonely night surrounds you
    How I'd love to be alone with you

    What I'd give to have the power
    To read your mind one hour
    How I'd love to be alone with you

    Just to be with you one night
    You and me alone
    Kiss your lips and hold you tight
    Have you for my own

    This would be a joy unending
    Could be a real beginning
    How I'd love to be alone with you

    How I'd love to be around you
    When the lonely night surrounds you
    How I'd love to be alone with you

    If I only knew for certain
    I'd cut out all my flirtin'
    How I'd love to be alone with you

    Just to be with you one night
    You and me alone
    Kiss your lips and hold you tight
    Have you for my own

    Won't you try to be my baby
    Just for once and then well maybe
    I could always be alone with you

    Won't you try to be my baby
    Just for once and then well maybe
    I could always be alone with you
    and I could always be alone with you...

    Spoiler:

    It's been a blue, blue day
    I feel like runnin' away
    I feel like runnin' away from it all

    My love has been untrue
    She's found somebody new
    It's been a blue, blue day for me

    I feel like cryin', dying'
    What can I do
    Feel like praying', sayin'
    I'm glad we're through

    It's been a blue, blue day
    I feel like runnin' away
    I feel like runnin' away from the blues

    I cannot make believe
    That I don't sit and grieve
    It's been a blue, blue day for me

    I can't pretend and say
    That I don't love her anyway
    It's been a blue, blue day for me

    I feel like cryin', dying'
    What can I do
    Feel like praying', sayin'
    I'm glad we're through

    It's been a blue, blue day
    I feel like runnin' away
    I feel like runnin' away from the blues

    I feel like runnin' away from the blues.....

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Johnny is a joker (he’s a bird)
    A very funny joker (he’s a bird)
    But when he jokes my honey (he’s a dog)
    His jokin’ ain’t so funny (what a dog)
    Johnny is a joker that’s a’tryin’ to steal my baby (he’s a bird dog)

    Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
    He sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)
    But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
    To me he’s just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
    Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he’s a bird dog)

    Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
    Hey, bird dog you’re on the wrong trail
    Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
    Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
    Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
    Bird dog you better find a chicken little love of your own

    Johnny kissed the teacher (he’s a bird)
    He tiptoed up to reach her (he’s a bird)
    Well he’s the teacher’s pet now (he’s a dog)
    What he wants he can get now (what a dog)
    He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he’s a bird dog)

    Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
    Hey, bird dog you’re on the wrong trail
    Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
    Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
    Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
    Bird dog you better find a chicken little love of your own

    He's a bird (fades out)

    "City Lights" by Ray Price

    "City Lights"

    by Ray Price
    songwriters: Bill Anderson
    Oct. 20th., 1958 - (#1 - 13 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    A bright array of city lights as far as I can see
    The Great White Way shines through the night for lonely guys like me
    The cabarets and honky tonks, their flashing signs invite
    A broken heart to lose itself in the glow of city lights.

    Lights that say "Forget her name in a glass of sherry wine"
    Lights that offer other girls for empty hearts like mine
    They paint a pretty picture of a world that's gay and bright
    But it's just a mask for loneliness behind those city lights.

    The world was dark and God made stars to brighten up the night
    But God who put the stars above I don't believe made those lights
    For it's just a place for men to cry when things don't turn out right
    Just a place to run away and hide behind those city lights.

    Lights that say "Forget her love in a different atmosphere"
    Lights that lure are nothing but a masquerade for tears
    They paint a pretty picture but my arms can't hold them tight
    And I just can say "I love you" to a street of city lights.

    "Billy Bayou"

    by Jim Reeves
    songwriters: Roger Miller
    Jan. 1st., 1959 - (#1 - 5 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    Back about eighteen hundred some
    A Louisiana couple had a redheaded son
    No name suited him, Jim, Jack or Joe
    They just called him Billy Bayou

    Billy, Billy Bayou watch where you go
    Your walking on quicksand, walk slow.
    Billy, Billy Bayou watch what you say
    A pretty girl... get you one of these days

    Billy was a boy kinda big for his size
    Red hair and freckles and big blue eyes
    Thirteen years form the day he was born
    Bill fought the battle of the Little Big Horn

    Billy, Billy Bayou watch where you go
    Your walking on quicksand, walk slow.
    Billy, Billy Bayou watch what you say
    A pretty girl.. get you one of these days

    One sad day billy cried ho! ho!
    I can whip the fathers off of Geronimo
    He smarted off, the chief got mad
    This nearly ended our Louisiana lad

    Billy, Billy Bayou watch where you go
    Your walking on quicksand, walk slow
    Billy, Billy Bayou watch what you say
    A pretty girl... get you one of these days

    One day in eighteen-seventy-eight
    A pretty girl walked through Bill's front gate
    He didn't know whether to stand there or run
    He wound up marred 'cause he did neither one

    Billy, Billy Bayou watch where you go
    Your walking on quicksand, walk slow.
    Billy, Billy Bayou watch what you say
    A pretty girl... get you one of these days

    Pretty girl... get you one of these days...

    "Don't Take Your Guns To Town"

    by Johnny Cash
    Born: 02/26/1931 Died: 09/12/2003 Cause: Complications from diabetes
    songwriters: Johnny Cash
    Feb. 23rd., 1959 - (#1 - 6 weeks)

    Lyrics:
    Spoiler:

    A young cowboy named Billy Joe grew restless on the farm
    A boy filled with wonderlust who really meant no harm
    He changed his clothes and shined his boots
    And combed his dark hair down
    And his mother cried as he walked out

    Don't take your guns to town son
    Leave your guns at home Bill
    Don't take your guns to town

    He laughed and kissed his mom
    And said your Billy Joe's a man
    I can shoot as quick and straight as anybody can
    But I wouldn't shoot without a cause
    I'd gun nobody down
    But she cried again as he rode away

    Don't take your guns to town son
    Leave your guns at home Bill
    Don't take your guns to town

    He sang a song as on he rode
    His guns hung at his hips
    He rode into a cattle town
    A smile upon his lips
    He stopped and walked into a bar
    And laid his money down
    But his mother's words echoed again

    Don't take your guns to town son
    Leave your guns at home Bill
    Don't take your guns to town

    He drank his first strong liquor then to calm his shaking hand
    And tried to tell himself he had become a man
    A dusty cowpoke at his side began to laugh him down
    And he heard again his mothers words

    Don't take your guns to town son
    Leave your guns at home Bill
    Don't take your guns to town

    Filled with rage then
    Billy Joe reached for his gun to draw
    But the stranger drew his gun and fired
    Before he even saw
    As Billy Joe fell to the floor
    The crowd all gathered 'round
    And wondered at his final words

    Don't take your guns to town son
    Leave your guns at home Bill
    Don't take your guns to town
