Baby you know me well
You know I mean what I say
Before I say farewell
I'll give you just another day

You'd better find out what's happening
Find out what's happening before long, Oh yeah
If you don't find out what's happening
You're gonna find out that I've gone now, Oh yeah

Tell me what you're gonna do
You'd better make up your mind
It all depends on you
I'm leaving you behind

You'd better find out what's happening
Find out what's happening before long, Oh yeah
If you don't find out what's happening
You're gonna find out that I've gone now, Oh yeah

Baby you know it's true
We've been through thick and thin
But if you don't come through
You won't ever see me again

You'd better find out what's happening
Find out what's happening before long, Oh yeah
If you don't find out what's happening
You're gonna find out that I've gone now, Oh yeah
You'd better find, find, better find out
Better find out
Better find, better find out
Better find, better find out
If you don't find, you're gonna find out that I'm gone
Recorded: 1973/07/22, first released on Raised on Rock

Some fine funky guitar & organ. I talked to guitar player Reggie Young and he said he didn't like playing on these sessions like he did on the ones in 1969. I like the songs, though they are not his best obviously.

Yes a funky song with a funky beat and an attempt to do something slightly different. I like the backing, the beat and the Elvis restrained voice.

Terrible song, never liked it and he doesn't sound like he's enjoying himself at all. I like most of the soundtracks better than this one.

Poor song from a poor album.This was Elvis on a slippery downward trend i'm afraid. "Raised On Rock" was a contradiction for this LP

Invisible because there was a reaction to someone else

Could this be called experimental? I personally like this song - it has a rocky and funky vibe to it.

A decent song from a very patchy album with a now outdated inlay which could do with a make over.

A decent track recorded in July of '73 for the LP "Raised On Rock". A little bit rock and roll, a little country and a little funky, Elvis gives a breezy performance that while not one of his greatest is good. I actually like the stripped down version on the LP "Our Memories of Elvis, Vol 2" (1979). There is just too much going on and I never cared for the Sweet Inspirations on this one. I always liked the ROR album, but I know it could have been better. I prefer "Sweet Angeline" (one of my all time favs), "For Ol' Times Sake", "Are You Sincere" and "If You Don't Come Back" much better than this one, but it is not the worst track either ("Three Corn Patches"). A 2 and 1/2 star song and the album gets the same.

Not a very good song people. Elvis isn't into it at all, he doesn't sound comfortable, and it's a pain listening to it. I prefer a lot of the movie songs compared to this one. Only reason why people liking it is simply cause Elvis is singing..

Not a bad track from a fairly poor album, not a song or album that i'd put on my play list

Great guitar work and a really good song despite some disappointing / lacklustre vocals from the King.

A decent song. I don't dislike the ROR album as much as others. I think it could have been much better had Elvis been in a better state of mind.

Certainly not a a great one, but I like it. Raised on rock wasn´t a very good album and it´s obvious that Elvis wasn´t completely into it. Still, it´s a nice song

this is a good song. has a southern rock feel. that said this song and album was recorded at difficult time.could be medication or some hurt feelings (ect.divorce in near future)this is just my opinion

Yes, we did find out what was happening later. There's no doubt "medication" played a role in the songs that made up this album, but I got over all that a loooooong time ago. As for the song I've always liked it. It is what it is.

We were later on to find out what was happening...

Not really crazy about it, but it isn't bad. I appreciate the fact that Elvis continued to branch out into different types of music throughout his life. I consider this song, as well as "If You Talk In Your Sleep" and "If You Don't Come Back" to be basically funk songs, and Elvis sounds as at home with these as he does on anything

It's also my favorite from that album, but the LP is so mediocore, that's not saying too much.

My favourite track from Raised on Rock. And one of my favourite tracks from the seventies. The country flavoured version released on the Essential Elvis vol. 6 is outstanding, with a masterful guitar solo. Love the organ sound also.

I really like this one despite the fact that Elvis is not completely into it. The outtakes prove he did not take the song too seriously although he managed to make it sound good nonetheless...

Not a bad song, but one of Elvis' 'sleepiest' performances. It sounds as if he is about to nod out at any second. He's not into it at all. Pharmacutical induced performance.
