Words & Music: Red West/ Joe Cooper
If you think I don't need you
Then take a look in my eyes
Maybe these ain't raindrops
Falling out of the sky
Since you been gone
I've been so alone
If you think I don't need you
Then baby you're wrong

If you think I don't love you
What could I do to prove to you baby
My love is true
I sing the same old song
Since you've been gone
If you think I don't love you
Then baby you're wrong

My life ain't been the same since you left me
I ain't had a wink of sleep in seven days
I don't know what to do I'm going crazy
I just walk the floor at night and call your name

If you think I don't do right
I'll change my ways
I'll do like you want me to, I'll be your slave
Since you been gone
I've been so alone
If you think I don't need you
Well baby you're wrong

If you think I don't do right
I'll change my ways
I'll do like you want me to, I'll be your slave
Since you been gone
I've been so alone
If you think I don't need you
Well baby you're wrong
Well baby you're wrong
Well baby you're wrong

This is from my wife's favourite Elvis album, the Double Features with Roustabout. A fun movie & a good soundtrack. This song is one of the better ones on it.

I meant to write that it's one of eleven songs that Elvis recorded that was written by Elvis' longtime friend and bodyguard Red West.

This is such a tremendous and fun song and it's such a shame that there was a shortened version of it in the movie "Viva Las Vegas" instead of the full version. It's one of seventeen songs that Elvis recorded that was written by Elvis' longtime friend and bodyguard Red West.

Invisible because there was a reaction to someone else

The "Viva Las Vegas" album is one of Elvis' greatest. Should've been released as a full length LP to coincide with the release of the movie.

Yes this is a good one as was most of the Viva soundtrack. Dont know why these standards could not be kept on all soundtracks. Oh yes I do. The same songwriters were always used and the well basically ran dry and Red West was busy with other things

This song is awesome! One of the very best from"Viva Las Vegas" and shows that Elvis's soundtrack work didn't always have to be so bland and ridiculous. if only they could all be this good...

This track is top-notch rock and roll from the movie "Viva Las Vegas". Well-written and a great performance by Elvis.

A good song with a bluesy back beat which may have sounded even better with the addition of a soulful female backing?

A great, great track. One of the best from the movie years, but also great when compared with Elvis studio work. Always love it. Too bad that in the movie, the fantastic Boots Randolph sax solo was cut. If Presley managed to keep this quality in his soundtracks, the sixties would not be that embarrassing time in his career.

Good song as was most of the Viva soundtrack. A relief from the otherwise dire 60's soundtracks.

Another underrated song in a Ray Charles style. Co written by Red West who came up with several top quality songs. This guy should have concentrated more on the writing and less on the fighting!
