Words & Music: Red West
I'll hold you tight in the moonlight tonight
I love you Mary Lou Brown
Twinkeling stars told the milky white way
That I marry Mary Lou Brown
And I will tell all the world
Of my young Southern girl,
See her tonight beyond moonlight
So I can hold Mary tight
I'll bring my guitar to the moonlight tonight
I love you Mary Lou Brown
Imagine your heart floating right up the sigh (?)
I love you Mary Lou Brown
Down by the green river side with my arms open wide
I'll wait for her, only for her
Mary Lou Brown's mine tonight
Mary Lou Brown's mine tonight
Recorded: 1966, first released on The Home Recordings

I think that this is a beautiful ballad and I wish that Elvis had recorded a proper studio version of it instead. Red West is such a great songwriter.

Maybe it could have been something with a good arrangment.

I'm sure i can hear Elvis singing bass on this. It's very quiet. My ears might be playing tricks on me but I'm sure it's Red West on lead, Charlie on tenor and Elvis rumbling along with them on bass. It's a pleasant enough tune if nothing special. Better than much of the stuff he recorded professionally in 66 (not including the HGTA sessions of course).

Just an obscure home recording, nothing more, nothing less. Whether it should have been released or not is not the point. It was done for fun & obviously the man isn't entitled to a session where he can just fool around & have fun. When you attend a jam session, it isn't meant for entertainment or critique. It is what it is.

Just a home recording. Nothing special. As a whole set it gives us a glance at the joys they had at that particular moment. Not to be taken serious.

Should have recorded Hello Mary Lou instead!

Mary Lou... Who?

Well, it was just a HOME recording... it wasn't intended to be released.

Is this on one of those "Home Recordings" fiascos I bought in one of my weaker moments and can no longer make myself listen to?

Elvis doesn't actually sing on this if you listen closely! Shouldn't have been released.
