I've seen various lists with so-called "Elvis private record collection"; I don't know what's true or what's fake.

We also got the snippet of him singing this on the 2011 2-CD set: Elvis Sings Guitar Man [FTD 98].

Bobbie Gentry was currently at No.1 with her smash hit when Elvis was in the studio recording, which no doubt inspired his one-line !
