Rating: 3.2 Stars3.2 Stars3.2 Stars3.2 Stars
Words & Music: Les Reed/ Barry Mason
When your asleep beside me, I watch you lying there
Your hand upon the pillow and moonlight in your hair
I get the warmest feeling, so good I almost cry
I kiss your sleeping lips and say I'll love you 'till I die

Oh girl of mine you make my day
One sunny smile and all the clouds just roll away
Eyes deep as the sea seem to say to me
Our love will always be
So girl of mine turn out the light
And in my arms together we'll make sweet love tonight
Down life's golden road and you'll always know
I love you ... girl of mine

Sometimes I know I hurt you when things ain't goin' right
I walk away and leave you to face the lonely night
I wouldn't blame you darlin' if you walked out on me
But I return to find you there still waiting patiently

Oh girl of mine you make my day
One sunny smile and all the clouds just roll away
Eyes deep as the sea seem to say to me
Our love will always be
So girl of mine turn out the light
And in my arms together we'll make sweet love tonight
Down life's golden road and you'll always know
I love you ... girl of mine

I've always liked the song "Girl of Mine", but it should have been put on a different Elvis album. An album titled "Raised On Rock" should have been filled with just Rock 'N' Roll songs. Amazingly, there are five ballads on the "Raised On Rock" album.

Donald Dunn & Al Jackson play on this track, but were so nervous, that they only recorded the backing track, so that Elvis overdubbed his vocals later. The other version is that Elvis' microphone was stolen, so Elvis simply went home. Nevertheless, I think it's a great ballad.

Not the best recording from these sessions, a mundane song lacking passion, soul and drive. Could anyone have done more with it.....perhaps.

Dull and boring as was the LP

A song from the "Raised On Rock" LP that I go back and forth on. It is the worst of the ballads on the LP, but it isn't a bad song. It is a little dull however and one of the songs (like "She Wears My Ring" on it's LP "Good Times") that should have been shelved for this LP. ROR (minus "Three Corn Patches and this one) had the makings of a fine LP and all RCA had to do was wait 3 months to release it and they could have been some nice rock and uptempo songs on it to live up to the title ("Promised Land", "If You Talk In Your Sleep", "I Got A Feelin' In My Body", "Talk About The Good Times" and they didn't have to wait at all for "I've Got A Thing About You Baby!). 2 1/2 stars.

The Raised On Rock album is not a particular favourite but I think that is Les Reed & Barry Mason song is one of the better tracks on the album
