Milkcow Blues Boogie

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Kokomo Arnold Elvis Presley Lyrics

Well, I woke up this morning,
And I looked out the door.
I can tell that old milk cow
By the way she lowed.

Hold it fellows, that don't move me.
Let's get real, real gone for a change.

Well, I woke up this morning
And I looked out the door
I can tell that that old milk cow
I can tell the way she lowed.

Well, if you've seen my milk cow,
Please ride her on home.
I ain't had no milk or butter
Since that cow's been gone.

Well, I tried to treat you right,
Day by day.
Get out your little prayer book
Get down on your knees and pray.
For you're gonna need,
You're gonna need your loving daddy's help someday.
Well, then you're gonna be sorry
For treating me this way.

Well, believe me, don't that sun look good going down?
Well, believe me, don't that sun look good going down?
Well, don't that old moon look lonesome
When your baby's not around.

Well, I tried everything to get along with you.
I'm gonna tell you what I'm going do.
I'm gonna quit my crying, I'm gonna leave you alone.
If you don't believe I'm leaving, you can count the days I'm
I'm gonna leave.
You're gonna need your loving daddy's help someday.
Well, you're gonna be sorry
You treated me this way.

December 23, Elvis, Scotty and Bill were stopped for speeding on their way home from Shreveport. Elvis recalled in a interview: 'I thought: Here goes my Christmas money for a traffic ticket. But the officer let us go with a warning. After the officer left, the 3 of us got out of the car and counted our money by the car headlights. The money was mostly in dollar bills, Man, that was the most money I ever had in my pockets at one time! I blew the whole bundle the next day for Christmas presents'.

December 25, Christmas on Alabama Street

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

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.
