Words & Music: Hank Williams
Today I passed you on the street
And my heart was at your feet
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

Somebody else stood by your side
And he looked so satisfied
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

A memory from the past came slowly stealing
As I braced your arm and walked so close to you (yeah)
Oh heaven only knows how much I miss you
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you
Recorded: 1959/04, first released on Platinum - A Life in Music

I'm sorry, the Anita Wood version was recorded Eddie Fadal Residence in Waco Texas.

There are several recordings of this song. On one, recorded in Germany, Anita Wood is doing the singing with Elvis on piano. On a other one Elvis is singing with a exaggerated country voice. On a other one he's singing "normally". A good song. Elvis could have played Hank Williams in a movie, but Parker backed off. So he robbed us of a album full of Hank Williams songs.

These Private Recordings will apart from 1 or 2 only get a maximum of 3 stars from me. They are what they are, a bit of a sing song in one's private time for personal pleasure, and this performance hints at something special if recorded in a studio.

This is such a marvelous song and Elvis' home recorded performance of it was terrific. With that said, Elvis should have recorded a proper studio version of this song for a studio album release. A proper studio version of it would have had a much better arrangement and far superior audio quality too.

I like this version. Why wasn't this recorded properly?
