I will be true
No matter what they may say
I will be true
Although you're far far away
Each night I pray
All day I'll say a silent prayer
That when I open my door
I'll find you there
Somehow I feel
That someday we'll meet again
Don't ask me how
It's something I can't explain
Until the day
I give up all hope of you
Assure yourself this I'll do
I will be true

Oh oh mmmmmmm
That someday we'll meet again
Don't ask me how
It's something I can't explain
Until the day
I give up all hope of you
Assure yourself this I'll do
I will be true

I've always liked this song and Elvis' rendition of it was terrific, but there really aren't enough recordings that feature just Elvis singing and playing the piano. It would have been much better if Elvis had done this song for an entire album that featured just him singing and playing the piano.

Who needs more? Elvis singing and playing the piano, performing a decent song. He could've indeed do an entire album like this.

The least favourite of the 3 songs from the session Elvis performed at the piano, Nice enough and well sung but doesn't quite grab me like the other two.

This song was on the "Fool" album, so Shep this is prbably not the multi-platinum album your thinking of. The Fool Album probably went gold. I like this song and others on that album, but the LP impressed me as being mostly left -overs from various early 70's sessions. I remember when I first spotted the record in a store, I thought it was a Camden budget release. Someday FTD should give us a CD devoted to the 1971 sessions this song came from.

A whole album of this stuff would have been better than the album it was on. Could have been a real concept album. Of course there was never any insight or thought given to Elvis' albums. Just get the product out, we have a contract to obligate.

From an album that only in recent months has been awarded 5 platinum discs for it's USA sales figures( I think I have the correct album?) A song I played quite often when I initially bought the record in the early 1970s but haven't played for many years. Good performance by Elvis and one he must have sang many times at home.

Elvis at the piano while sliding his voice effortlessly up and down the scale produce this nice ballad from the 1973 "Elvis" LP. This type of song really wasn't a great selection for a 1973 LP that was the follow-up to the "Aloha" LP as it's appeal would have been strictly to Elvis' older audience and not the youth of the early 70's. The LP overall is a decent easy listening LP; but when you consider when it was released and the total lack of any uptempo rock recordings, it has to be considered a failure in the Elvis catalog. I could listen to and enjoy any of the song independently of each other; but as a whole the LP is light years from "TTWII", "From Elvis In Memphis", and "Elvis Country". No direction, definitely no concept and a sales disaster.
