C 
How many girls choose  
Em 
cotton dress worlds
 
When  
F 
they could have satins and  
C 
lace
 
And  
E7 
stand by her man never once letting shade touch her  
F 
face
C 
How many hearts could live  
C7 
through all the winters
 
We've  
F 
known and still not be  
C 
cold
 
True  
Em 
love 
 
 
G7 
travels on a gravel  
C 
road
 
Love is a stranger and  
Em 
hearts are in danger
 
All  
F 
through streets paved with  
C 
gold
 
For true  
Em 
love 
 
 
G7 
travels on a gravel  
C 
road
 
Down through the years  
Em 
we've had hard times and tears
 
But  
F 
they only helped our love  
C 
grow
 
And we'll  
E7 
stay together no matter how strong the wind  
F 
blows
C 
Not once have I seen your blue  
C7 
eyes filled with envy
 
Or  
F 
stray from the one that you  
C 
hold
 
Oh true  
Em 
love 
 
 
G7 
travels on a gravel  
C 
road

Repeat #2

 
Yeah true  
Em 
love 
 
 
G7 
travels on a gravel  
C 
road

Who is Elvis Presley?
- Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 - August 16, 1977), also known simply as Elvis, was an American singer and actor. Dubbed the "King of Rock and Roll", he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century. His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, led him to both great success and initial controversy.
Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, and relocated to Memphis, Tennessee with his family when he was 13 years old. His music career began there in 1954, recording at Sun Records with producer Sam Phillips, who wanted to bring the sound of African-American music to a wider audience. Presley, on rhythm acoustic guitar, and accompanied by lead guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, was a pioneer of rockabilly, an uptempo, backbeat-driven fusion of country music and rhythm and blues. In 1955, drummer D. J. Fontana joined to complete the lineup of Presley's classic quartet and RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who would manage him for more than two decades. Presley's first RCA single, "Heartbreak Hotel", was released in January 1956 and became a number-one hit in the United States. With a series of successful network television appearances and chart-topping records, he became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll.
In November 1956, Presley made his film debut in Love Me Tender. Drafted into military service in 1958, Presley relaunched his recording career two years later with some of his most commercially successful work. He held few concerts, however, and guided by Parker, proceeded to devote much of the 1960s to making Hollywood films and soundtrack albums, most of them critically derided. In 1968, following a seven-year break from live performances, he returned to the stage in the acclaimed television comeback special Elvis, which led to an extended Las Vegas concert residency and a string of highly profitable tours. In 1973, Presley gave the first concert by a solo artist to be broadcast around the world, Aloha from Hawaii. Years of prescription drug abuse severely compromised his health, and he died suddenly in 1977 at his Graceland estate at the age of 42.
With his rise from poverty to significant fame, Presley's success seemed to epitomize the American Dream. He is the best-selling solo music artist of all time, and was commercially successful in many genres, including pop, country, R&B, adult contemporary, and gospel. He won three Grammy Awards, received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, and has been inducted into multiple music halls of fame. Presley holds several records the most RIAA certified gold and platinum albums, the most albums charted on the Billboard 200, and the most number-one albums by a solo artist on the UK Albums Chart and the most number-one singles by any act on the UK Singles Chart. In 2018, Presley was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Donald Trump.
