Home is where the heart is
And my heart is anywhere you are
Anywhere you are is home
I don't need a mansion on a hill
That overlooks the sea
Anywhere you're with me is home

Maybe I'm a rolling stone
Who won't amount to much
But everything that I hold dear
Is close enough to touch

For home is where the heart is
And my heart is anywhere you are
Anywhere you are is home

Maybe I'm a rolling stone
Who won't amount to much
But everything that I hold dear
Is close enough to touch

For home is where the heart is
And my heart is anywhere you are
Anywhere you are is home

Home, home, home, home, home
Recorded: 1961/10/26, first released on EP

Amazing-Overlooked-and would love to see this get a new backing instrumental track and the song extended, and re-released on a new "Love" song Collection. It needs to be more well known.

In the early years of our marriage, my wife and I couldn't be together because of the sctrict legistrations in Holland. So when I visited her in Vietnam, I always had to leave her behind when I went back home. One time on the airplane I listened to Elvis songs and this one came on. Needless to say I thought I had to be in Vietnam, 'cause there was my heart. We are happy together now, living in Belgium.

This is such a beautiful, underrated and overlooked ballad and it's easily one of Elvis' very best movie songs from the 1960's.

Phenomenal ballad sung with meaning and a delivery using his mellow sounding voice. Kid Galahad had some real nice songs.

Always liked this song very easy to listen to. Elvis sounds like he means the words he is singing, a good song from a pretty good movie.

Outstanding indeed.One of my favourite movie ballads. I remember buying the Laurel Bootleg "Radio Recorders Revisited" and this one gets a regular spin, because of some excellent alternate takes with a very good sound quality. I give it 5 stars.

An excellent sweet ballad.An unusual lyric structure too with the bridge repeated.Magical

Outstanding ballad from the movie and EP "Kid Galahad". Elvis' vocals on this one are perfect.
