Rating: 3.8 Stars3.8 Stars3.8 Stars3.8 Stars
Words & Music: Tableporter
I am yours and you are mine, come what may
Love like ours remains divine, come what may
Even though we're miles apart
You're living in my lonely heart
At night the teardrops start and pour the long long day

I keep your picture near me since you went away
I plant a kiss upon your lips each night and day
Bear in mind and you will find a heart that is true
And I'll be here with you come what may

All right!

I keep your picture near me since you went away
I plant a kiss upon your lips each night and day
Bear in mind and you will find a heart that is true
And I'll be here with you come what may
And I'll be here with you come what may
And I'll be here with you come what may
Ah um bop a bop a um bop a bop a come what may
Recorded: 1966/05/28, first released on single

Sounds very similar to the Clyde McPhatter version. I like them both.

Always liked this 60's rocker with its energy and infectious beat. Nice contrast to the A side Love Letters and I played them equally when released - easily 4 stars from me.

This is such a marvelous, catchy, exciting, underrated and overlooked song. It's such a fun song to dance to as well.

Solid upbeat effort that after it was released as a single in '66 was never released again during Elvis' life. Would have been a good track on a studio LP if Elvis had recorded enough songs to fill a non-soundtrack LP in 1966.

Catchy, fun tune. I've always liked it a lot. At the time this was released I was 16. Didn't care how well it charted/sold back then. Only cared if my ears liked a song or not. To be honest I didn't care about any of that stuff later either, and I don't care today.

I always liked this song. Great performance by Elvis and the band. Very "upbeat and fun", however, I thought it could have been mixed better, with a longer playing time. And regards to the flip side of the single "Love Letters". I'm one of the few fans, who likes, the 70s studio version of the song better than the 6os-version. More depth to his voice in that 70s version.

Funny catchy tune. Not among his greatest work, but certainly much better than most of what he was recording for the movies those years.

Catchy tune and fun song originally done by Clyde McPhatter whom Elvis loved. I didnt think this would be a hit and it did come at a very bad time, perhaps Elvis' weakest 60's chart period. Backed by Love Letters to be a summer single it just didnt click. It would have been nice to have it on a 1966 studio LP.

Although I am a real Elvis fan, I found this a real stupid song. Sorry, folks.

Underrated. It´s not a bad song. So, why is it so underrated? I think it came at a time where it was just movies, movies, movies. Imagine a proper studio album with this one, I´ll Remember you and Tomorrow is a long time. That would have been nice

Very, very, very catchy tune...quite under-rated one unfortunately!...Not known at all from the general public ! I always sing along with Elvis everytime I play that one !

Written by Willie Nelson under the adopted name of "Tableporter" I didn't like this song when I first heard it but over the years I have grown fond of it. Elvis really seemed to enjoy singing the song, resulting in a great end product
