As I read the letters that you wrote to me
Well it's you, it's you that I’m thinking of
As I read the lines that to me were so sweet
I remember our faded love

I miss you darlin' more and more everyday
As heaven would miss the stars above
With every heartbeat, I still think of you
And remember our faded love

As I think of the past, all the pleasures that we had
As I watch the mating of the doves
It was in the springtime that you said goodbye
I remember our faded love

I miss you darlin' more and more everyday
As heaven would miss the stars above
With every heartbeat, I still think of you
And remember our faded love
Recorded: 1970/06/07, first released on Elvis Country

I don't care for Elvis' reinvention of this song. I can tolerate the edited version. But I have no time for the unedited version.

Never cared for the song at all

A rocking version of a Patsy Cline ballad. Excellent example of Elvis taking a song made famous by another artist and making it completely his own. Could have been a hit single easily.

Elvis first tried it out more slow & country (as can be heard on "A hundred years from now"), but finally turned it into a country-rock song. Brilliant. Also good guitarwork.

One of my favourite tracks from Elvis Country with a good rocking beat and excellent vocal delivery.

This is such a stellar song and Elvis' rendition of it was splendid. Elvis should have sang this song at more than just a few of his concerts though. I rate every song, arrangement and performance from the "Elvis Country" album 5 Stars.

Solid country effort, but easily one of, if not the weakest song on the Elvis Country LP. A 5 star LP and a 3 star track.

I like it a lot, but I think it is the weakest song on the album. Done & overdone by too many before Elvis.

For a country song more than okay. I like the fatest version the most.
