Fools rush in, where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you my love
My heart above my head
Though I see the danger there
If there's a chance for me
Then I don't care, oh-oh-oh-oh
Fools rush in, where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know
When we met, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
And I don't care, oh-oh-oh-oh
Fools rush in, where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know
When we met, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
Recorded: 1971/05/18, first released on Elvis Now

This is such a terrific song and Elvis' rendition of it is marvelous. I've never skipped it. I enjoy the renditions of this gem by Ricky Nelson and Elvis equally. Five stars from me.

If only had recorded Suzie Q to give a historical nod to Burton instead. Not a fan of Fools Rush In.

James Burton has an instrumental version on his The Guitar Sounds of James Burton. Brook Benton has a nice version too, but Elvis clearly took the Nelson version as example. A nice, relaxing song.

I love this song with the infectious beat by both Ricky and Elvis. I agree the two versions are very close but enjoy both renditions equally as it didn't stretch Ricky's more limited vocal range.

A rather breezy peformance on a mediocre song that is still vocally light years better than Ricky Nelson's version. Ricky had some decent records, but his rather thin voice really shows when he sings this song.

Elvis used the Ricky Nelson arrangement note for note it seems. It also help having James who played on both. They are almost identical so I only prefer the Elvis version because I like Elvis more than Ricky.
